“This is Russia”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2013

We had a two day private tour and we opted out of going inside this church to save some time for our other activities, but I am happy that I at least go to see the outside and take some nice shots. You will have A LOT to see in St. Petersburg so a private tour is the best way to organize everything and to make sure you get the best out of your stay, and that you are not wasting too much time at certain sites.

“Dazzling”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2013

Amazing from the outside, and plenty of colour and light inside, but it is a small church, and you can walk around it reasonably quickly, even with admiring all the artefacts and the icons. They charge a fair bit to get in as well, but it IS one of the landmarks of St Pete.

“Magnificent!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2013

I was absolutely blown away by the art and craftsmanship of creators of this Church. There is not a single painting or drawing in there, everything is mosaic, floor to ceiling. Very impressive. The Church is also beautiful on the outside, a true landmark of St. Petersburg

“Stunning”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2013

The beauty of the place does not have words! It was a moving place & I am not easily moved! Just keep looking up to the ceiling, if you can take your eyes of everything else, stunning just stunning.
