St. Isaac's Cathedral or Isaakievskiy Sobor as it is locally called is the largest cathedral for the Russian Orthodox Church in the city of Saint Petersburg. Built as a dedication to Saint Isaac of Dalmatia, this church bears references to quite a few styles of architecture.
Most prominent among these styles of architecture are the eminent Late Neoclassical influences which have gone together in creating a sort of cross between a Byzantine and Greek church. Construction of the church began in 1818 and it took forty years to complete in 1858. Originally commissioned by Tsar Alexander I, the designs of this church had gone through substantial amounts of criticism until the emperor himself had to settle the disputes.
