Know More about this tour

The tour starts off with you being greeted by your guide in your hotel lobby. Enjoy the city's scenery while walking or driving (depending on the tour options you selected) from your hotel to the closest cathedral. The route will be customized depending on your hotel location. A private guide will accompany you throughout the duration of the tour and you will also be provided with free compliments such as city maps, bottles of water, rain coats (in case of rain) and farewell gifts.

The first Cathedral, Saint Isaac Cathedral is a great work of the late period of classical architecture. It used to be the principal place of worship in Saint Petersburg before the October Revolution of 1917. Having been built between 1818 and 1858, St Isaac Cathedral is one of the major achievements in Russian construction techniques of that time. The cathedral is richly decorated with sculptures, high reliefs, oil paintings and mosaics. St.Isaac's is also famous as a museum of minerals, because it's interior walls are covered with rare sorts of marble, malachite, lapis-lazuli etc. You will be invited to climb the cathedral colonnade and contemplate St. Petersburg from above with a bird's eye view.

The second place of interest is the Church of Our Savior on Spilled Blood, a rare example of a traditional Russian church. The church was built on the spot where the Russian emperor Alexander II was assassinated in 1881. This Church is really unique, because it is decorated with 7000 square metres of mosaics. The magnificent tent canopy is made of greyish-violet and greenish jasper, lapis-lazuli and rhodonite.

Lastly you will get to see the main cathedral of the city, Kazan cathedral which is located in Nevsky prospect. Whilst the first two cathedrals of the tour have been turned into museums, Kazan cathedral is still an active orthodox church.
