“Lovely church.”
Reviewed April 17, 2014 via mobile

We did this in two visits, one to see the church and one to climb the tower. The church is magnificent, take some time to sit and admire the artwork. There is a lot, so it's easy to miss the smaller details. The tower is good, nice views of the city. Worth climbing the steps! It's possible to buy a ticket from an automated machine (in English) at the entrance to the church, so no need to queue at the ticket booth.

“Church glitz with a view.”
Reviewed April 11, 2014

Even if you not into churches, take a walk (climb) up the collenade if it's a clear day. Very high with views around st.petersburg. Cathedral is a separate price and with all the glitz most churches have. Very bling and a lot of history with English description or audio.
