This cathedral is colourful, spectacular and beautiful near one of the canals of st.p. Its possible to compare it to the vasiliji cathedral in Moscow. Tourist trap but if you havent planned to go inside, you can come here all day. Nice when the sun sets.

The mosaics are amazing. Plan to spend a couple of hours inside and around the cathedral. Fun shopping close by as well.

A little touristy in the area but still a must see when you are in Saint Petersburg. Did not have a chance to go in but if inside is like the outside I guess I missed a lot.

The Church itself made it to history on how and when it was built. The exterior of the church is quite impressive with the colors and the artistry…much more the interior as you walk in and hear about its history. Highly recommended spot for tourists. Good thing is….it's a few steps away from the good bars, cafes and restaurants.

If there's only one cathedral you decide to visit on your trip to St Petersburg, let it be this one. On the outside, it slightly resembles Moscow's Saint Basil's church, but on the inside it is filled with countless beautiful mosaics. And there's very interesting history to it, too. I don't know about other languages, but the Russian guides know... More
