Other visits at optional entry fee:
The Peter and Paul Cathedral – The city’s tallest structure in the days of Peter the Great and even today, only the television tower exceeds it in the height. The ornate interior boasts gilded iconostasis, 18th century paintings, icons – and the tombs of many Tsars and Tsarinas, including Peter the Great and Catherine the Great.
The Church of our Savior on Spilled Blood – It was built on the spot where the Emperor was mortally wounded. The interior of the Church is decorated with incredibly detailed mosaics designed and created by the most prominent Russian artists of the day.
The St. Isaac’s Cathedral is the former principal Orthodox cathedral of the country and one of the most visited city landmarks. The exterior of the Cathedral barely hints on its breathtaking interior adorned with gold, semiprecious stones, mosaics and oil paintings.
