Taking 40 years to build under the reigns of Alexander I, Nicholas I, and Alexander II, St. Isaac’s Cathedral was the center of religious life in the Capital of the North until the Revolution of 1917. Inaugurated in 1858, the third-largest cathedral in Europe is an architectural feat in that building it required new construction techniques. St. Isaac’s Cathedral can accommodate more than 14,000 of the faithful and its dome, whose summit reaches 102m, will offer you a magnificent view of the Gulf of Finland.

Today, as a property shared between the city of St. Petersburg and the Russian Orthodox Church, St. Isaac’s remains as one of the important religious centers and is one of the most-visited museums in the Capital of the North. With your guide, share in the discovery of a central building in the history of the city with its impressive decorations and dimensions. Thanks to your guide, you will learn more about the construction of the Cathedral, about its treasures, and its turbulent history. 

Due to its history, its religious role, and its ornamentation, St. Isaac’s Cathedral is an essential visit for any stay in St. Petersburg. 

Don’t forget to climb up to the cupola to get a breathtaking view of the city and the Neva (with additional fees).

At the beginning this Church reminded us about the Vatican but then we found something really different and absolutely stunning. Thanks to our guide, we learned a lot on the history of the building. Thanks a lot!

The coupole is simply gorgeous and the church massive. The inside museum was so impressive, it would be a shame to stay outside. The only cloud on the horizon was the scaffolding because of the restoration.
