St. Isaac's Cathedral is dedicated to Peter the Great's favorite saint. It is the largest cathedral in Russia and ranks amont the largest cathedrals of the world. It was built between 1818 and 1858, by the French-born architect Auguste Montferrand, to be one of the most impressive landmarks of the Russian Imperial capital. It's not only the impressive structure, but also the collection of the greatest engineering innovations. One hundred and eighty years later the gilded dome of St. Isaac's still dominates the skyline of St. Petersburg. Although the cathedral is considerably smaller than the newly rebuilt Church of Christ the Savior in Moscow, it boasts much more impressive fades and interiors.

This fortress, built to deflect Swedish raids, was the city’s very first structure. While the view from the fortress ramparts is fantastic, the main attraction is Trezzini's Peter and Paul Cathedral, built in 1712. Almost all Romanov tsars including Nicholas II, are buried here. There are several other museums scattered around the fortress grounds, like the political prison museum or St. Petersburg history exhibition and you can buy a special day ticket which enables access to all.

This spectacular cathedral was inspired by the Cathedral of St. Peter in Rome. It is one of the city's most majestic structures. It was built from 1801 to 1811 to house the miracle-working Icon of Virgin Mary, called our Lady of Kazan. The construction was completed shortly before the war with Napoleon, thus it became the memorial to Russian victory in this war. The cathedral houses the banners of the defeated regiments as well as the keys to the towns conqured. The grave of Russain greatest field marshal Kutuzov is also located inside.

Kazan cathedral is the main church of the city. Services daily. 

10-20 min (if you go inside)

The symbol of Saint Petersburg - onion domed cathedral that stands out from the neo-classical surroundings of the city-center. The church is decorated with lots of mosaics inside and outside, the domes are covered with colorful enamels. The church was build on the very place where Tsar Alexander II was mortally wounded in 1881.

Closed Wednesdays
15-30 min

With one of the largest collections of Russian art housed in Rossi's impressive Mikailovsky Palace, this museum is definitely worth a look. The museum was opened in the end of the 19th century with the aim to promote and celebrate the national art. Its collection spans from 12th-century Icons to 20th-century masters like Chagall, Malevich and Kandinsky. Currently the museum collection can be seen in several palaces around the city, but the best pieces are displayed in the main complex.
