Full description
You will start your journey with the Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood, which was built in 1881 on the site of the assassination of Alexander II. The church still keeps the evidences of this horrible event – you will see the stones on which fell mortally wounded Alexander II, parts of the pavement and the lattice of the Catherine canal. The British portal Vouchercloud recognized the Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood the most popular attraction in Russia for tourists from all over the world, and recently it entered the Top-10 attractions in the world by TripAdvisor.

Continue your route towards beautiful Kazan Cathedral, which holds the miraculous icon of Kazan Mother of God - one of the main Shrines of the country. Moreover it is closely connected with the events of the Patriotic war. The Cathedral keeps the military trophies of the defeated French army gathered during the war in 1812 and the keys to the fortresses and cities of Europe taken by the Russian army in 1813-1814. And that is not all - near the walls of the Kazan Cathedral is buried the great General Mikhail Kutuzov.

The termination point of the tour will be the Saint Isaac's Cathedral - one of the biggest in the world. You will be surprised to know that it was rebuilt 4 times and the final construction took more than 40 years! The Cathedral used to be called as a Museum of colored stone, because during the building were used 43 types of minerals. Its luxurious dome, painted by the best artists and sculptors will take you breath away!

Guía correcta y competente

En principio quería un guía en español pero por alguna confusión vino a buscarme una guía de habla inglesa: Julia. He de decir que en seguida se pusieron en contacto desde la central para intentar solucionar el asunto, pero como mi tiempo ya estaba muy contado y mi inglés es aceptable, decidí realizar la actividad con Julia. Una guía profesional y encantadora, que se preocupó en todo momento de que se la entendiera a la perfección. La visita se realizó en un tiempo algo más escaso de lo previsto por el incidente inicial, pero, salvo echar en falta alguna explicación adicional por ello, pude hacer con Julia una excursión agradabilísima a pie y en metro hasta las catedrales con una persona muy competente, que me mostró los detalles más relevantes por fuera y por dentro. Tuvo el detalle final de acompañarme en el taxi hasta el punto donde quise quedarme.
