Wishlisted by Lemi
Come face-to-face with the city’s largest Russian Orthodox cathedral! Built by French architect Auguste de Montferrand, Saint Isaac’s Cathedral took a total of 40 years to design and complete. It is dedicated to Saint Isaac of Dalmatia, the patron saint of Peter the Great (who was born during the saint’s feast day). Be one of the 14,000 worshippers who frequent the iconic edifice daily! Marvel at its neoclassical facade—which highlights 112 red granite columns—and its signature gold-plated dome. Make your trip even more special by climbing 300 steps up to the colonnade for majestic views of St. Petersburg!
