Full description
Your tour will begin as you meet outside the Orthodox Cathedral of Saint-Isaac, which was built in the 19th century. Up until the Revolution, this building was a center of religious life in Saint Petersburg. Being the 3rd-largest cathedral in Europe, it has a magnificent view of the city and the Neva River from its largest dome of 102 meters height. Take the chance to go up there, from where you can enjoy the stunning views of this northern capital.

Following that, you will head on foot towards the Cathedral of Saint Savior on Spilled Blood, across the center of the city. Built on the site where Alexander II was murdered in 1881, this neo-Russian-style cathedral, inspired by Moscow's St. Basil's Cathedral, is today one of the most picturesque buildings in Russia and is permanently visited by the tourists from all over the world.

It will take you about an hour in each of the two cathedrals, and you will learn more about their history and reveal their secrets. This experience is a must-gain experience for every traveler in St. Petersburg, and will provide you with countless picturesque photographic opportunities.
