streets, squares -- articles and capital letters

In a text about the history of a city, how do you spell "streets," "squares," etc. in placenames -- with a first letter in capital or not? And do you use definite articles?

Morskaya street or Morskaya Street? In (on) Morskaya S(s)treet or in (on) THE Morskaya S(s)treet? Thanks.

Also: cathedrals -- first in capital or not? St.Isaac's Cathedral?

P.S. I'm interested in the English language rules, of course.
