The Chesma Church is located on Moskovsky Avenue, in the south of St. Petersburg. It is consecrated as the Church of the Nativity of John the Baptist. However, everyone calls it the "Chesma Church", since it was built on the site where Empress Catherine II was informed in 1770 about the victory of the Russian fleet over the Turkish fleet in the Battle of Chesma.
