This is a beautiful church and the inside is just fabulous. The outside is wonderful. A must see when in St. Petersburg.

After seeing this church, I never have to see another. It was that amazing. We have been to Revenna, but the mosaics here surpass anything I have seen. The entire interior of the church is floor to ceiling mosaic. And it is rather new, so the colours are very bright and alive.

One of the most amazing churches I ever visited (the other one was Köln Cathedral). Certainly a must see church.

Beautiful interior but no English tours and only the ground floor is open to public. No English information written about the paintings on the walls.

The mosaics were exquisite and the artworkis so rich one doesn't know when to stop taking photos. The exterior was post-card perfect, the golden domes glistening in the sunlight.

What I always imagined a Russian church to look like! Go with a guide the location, how it is built over the river etc is worth understanding

As nice as the church is on the outside, it is definitely worth buying a ticket for inside. This is one of the main landmarks in St. Petersburg and all of Russia. Make sure to check out both sides on the outside, while the view is basically the same it is nice to see one side with the canal by... More
