About St. Isaac's Cathedral, Saint Petersburg

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.

St. Isaac's Cathedral, Saint Petersburg Reviews - Write a Review

  • Stunning building. Impressive architecture and one of the largest cathedrals in the world. My favorite one in Russia. Open from 10:30 to 18:00, except Wednesday. The adult admission fee to the cathedral was RUB 250 and the Colonnade RUB 150 or an All-in ticket for RB 400 for both (prices October 2017). You can easily buy the tickets in a machine next to the ticket office. Accept cards and cash.

  • Amazing! The price to go up to the top is super worth it! Spectacular views of the city all around! The stairs seem like a lot but it's not that bad. I made it to the top with a baby strapped to me and it was actually pretty easy. This place is definitely worth spending some time at. I haven't been to the museum, but it's not that much more than going to the top and it looked pretty cool inside. The architecture is stunning.

  • Great views from the colonnade. 262 steps to reach it. Stairs are low and staircase quite wide. (No lift) It is so grand Inside the cathedral. Stunning interiors, absolutely beautiful place. Jaw dropping. No toilets inside (across the road for small change)

  • Great place of history. Worth visiting. 262 steps to the colonnade gives a great view of the city.

  • Fantastic interiors. I was left speechless. Prevalent color inside is gold. You'll be fascinated by the art. If you pay extra or you buy it separately, you'll have the chance to go upstairs to the viewing 360° terrace. It's fantastic and you can view all the main landmarks the city has to offer. Just fantastic! Price? CHEAP. Location? At the center of Saint Petersburg. Conclusion: Go, don't look back. It's amazing :-)
