Look at the huge majestic Isaac Cathedral with your own eyes

Designed by the architect Auguste Montferrand, St Isaac's Cathedral or Isaakievskiy Sobor is an outstanding monument of a mid-19th century late Russian Neo-Classicism. Noteworthy is the Cathedral's interior decoration, representing all forms of monumental and decorative arts — painting, sculpture, mosaic and colored stonework. Its main iconostasis is adorned with columns of malachite and lapis lazuli, while the main altar features the stained-glass Christ Risen, a feature rarely seen in an Orthodox church.

It Is an unforgettable experience to see this grandiose architectural monument live from a close distance!
