Dear Heygoers, welcome to the big tour inside, outside and on the top of Saint Isaac’s Cathedral of Saint Petersburg. This is one of the biggest dome churches in the world built in mid 19th century. To construct such a huge edifice, the architect had to use all state-of-the-art technologies available and even help establish a whole new industry. At 333ft high and 300,000 tons weight, St.Isaac’s Cathedral was once built to become the main church of the entire Russian Empire that is why the Romanovs wouldn’t spare funds in its decoration. These domes and walls have numerous stories to share, as well as the entire area around it. By the end of the tour, we’ll be going to the viewpoint on the colonnade of the church located 43 meters (141 ft) above the ground. I promise you some breathtaking views.
Anna is a a licensed tour guide in Saint Petersburg, Russia. The curious thing about this city is that it’s very young - a bit more than 300 years old. However, in only three centuries the city’s managed to become one of the most magnificent cities of the world. Anna's goal is to tell the world about the beauty of her city, its history, Russian culture, heritage and how it all has influenced our everyday life. Regardless of your age, interests, origin and political views, St.Pete should be on the bucket list of every globetrotter because it has everything to meet the needs of the most sophisticated travelers.

Oh my goodness. This was outstanding. Not only the cathedral in all its glory and magnificence, but primarily because of Anna. She never ceases to amaze me with her command of English, but aside from that, her knowledge is incredible and her professionalism and enthusiasm are exemplary. St Petersburg has become a must visit destination for me and that’s mainly because Anna has shown us some amazing sights and been the most fabulous guide. Thank you.

I enjoyed this tour so much around the first time that I came back for more! And Anna outdid herself this time with the amazing views of the inside of the church and from the top of the stairs high above. Always a great adventure with Anna.
