Climb up to the colonnade to gain a great view of the city. Lovely inside, the audio guide is very useful.
Immense cathedral, third in size ratings, after London and Rome, impressively arranged between the two squares by the Neva embankment, one of them decorated with the Bronze Horsemen described as a monstrous ghost in the Pushkin's poem, is unusual and unparalleled, not typical for neither austere nor embellished edifices and boasts a unique and absolutely different beauty.

Didn't get a chance to go inside as we had so much on the itinerary, but the tremendous panoramic view from the dome is a must when you visit this city. The photos you can get from that height and feeling of the majestic St Petersburg was worth the climb.

The entrance is quite cheap, and even if you have to climb a lot of stairs, the view is definitely worth it. Totally over the whole city the most pleasant moment is going at sunset, seeing the sun setting over the city and all the lights on is totally great!

The beauty and process it took to accomplish this is almost beyond my comprehension. This museum is a one of... More
Allow yourself plenty of time to see this cathedral. It is very beautiful on the inside. You can also walk to the top of the dome (colonnade) for a great view of the city. However, keep in mind that the last flight of stairs before you reach the very top, is exposed to the outside. Also, you can’t turn around... More
The square is impressive in its size, but the pickpockets are well organized, dressed as tourists with cameras, etc. and seem to have a free pass from the police. Don't stop to look at the wares of any street vendors.
