St. Isaac's cathedral

Kazan cathedral

Description

This full day tour provides a visit to the exclusive Yusupov`s Palace as well as an overview of the opulent St. Isaac`s Cathedral and the Cathedral of our Lady of Kazan. In addition, do what locals would do: take a shopping bag and explore a colorful food market.
Explore the Yusupov’s Palace, a museum which provides an interesting look at the lives of the aristocracy of the 19th and early 20th centuries. The palace features exotic rooms such as the Moorish Room, a wonderful Rococo theatre that is still used for concerts, etc. Yusupov’s palace is perhaps best known as the site of the murder of Grigori Rasputin, a man with mystical powers who influenced the family of the last Russian tsar.
The St. Isaac’s Cathedralis the former principal Orthodox cathedral of the country and one of the most visited city landmarks. The exterior of the Cathedral barely hints at its breathtaking interior adorned with gold, semiprecious stones, mosaics and oil paintings.
The Cathedral of our Lady of Kazanis located on the main street of the city. It was inspired by the Basilica of St. Peter`s in Rome. After the war of 1812 this impressive church became a monument to Russian victory. From 1932 it served anti-religious propaganda purposes. Recently regular services have been reinstated though it still shares the premises with the museum.

Explore a Local Food Market and feel the every day life of the city. This is where locals sell fruit and vegetables from their dachas (country houses). Taste honey, pickles, cottage cheese. Markets are colorful places to visit even if you do not need to buy, though for fun you can usually bargain a bit over prices.
