St. Isaac’s and Savior on the Spilled Blood on foot, 3 hours
St. Isaac’s Cathedral built in 1858 by the architect Montferrand is the 4-th in height among one-cupola’s cathedrals in the world after St. Peter’s in Rome, St. Paul’s in London and Santa Maria del Fiorre in Florence. The richly adorned interior, lined with marble, and with malachite and lazurite columns, was intended for up to 10000 worshippers. One of the loveliest beauty spots located in the heart of St. Petersburg is The Church of the Savior on the Spilled Blood, built in the Old Russian style with, unusual for the city, onion-shaped domes. The church is unique, interior and exterior being richly decorated with fabulous mosaics.
