Visit Russia, Moscow, Saint-Petersburg - Tsar Visit © - Discover the best guided-tour in Moscow and Saint-Petersburg in Russia with Tsar Visit
You meet your guide near the Orthodox Cathedral of Saint-Isaac, built in the 19th century. It was the center of religious life in St Petersburg until the Revolution. As the third largest cathedral in Europe, it offers a magnificent view of the city and the Neva from its main dome, with a high of 102 meters. You visit the cathedral with your guide, and access to the main dome to enjoy a unique panoramic view of St. Petersburg.
You then head towards the Cathedral of Saint Savior on Spilled Blood, crossing the city center on foot with your guide. 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 and visited buildings in Russia.
You and your guide will spend about an hour in each of the two cathedrals, and you will learn more about their history and secrets. This visit is must-do if travelling to St. Petersburg.
