Reviewed September 1, 2014

Amazing! You have to go! To be surrounded, 360 degrees by this much beauty cannot be reproduced by film or still. Just go, take a coupe of pictures to aid your memory and then spend a good long time soaking up the experience.

“A must”
Reviewed September 1, 2014

There were very impressing mosaikwalls inside the church and the outside is typical russian style beautiful but overburdened with ornaments.

“must-see!”
Reviewed September 1, 2014

Don't even contemplate whether you should go. Just do it! I'm glad I got the chance see this church on my short trip to St. Petersburg. It's an amazing church and I would suggest to get the audio guide because it gives you a thorough and interesting explanation of the history of the church. The work inside the church is very detailed and has an interesting story behind it.

“No Wonder it is Rated #1”
Reviewed September 1, 2014

One of the reasons we selected the tour company we did, was to see the inside and not just a photo op outside as listed on the ship's excursion. Awesome!

“Highlight of Saint Petersburg”
Reviewed September 1, 2014

This is one of our favorite churches for a visit. We visited in 2006 and just had to go again. The inside of the church is beyond me describing in a review. Pictures outside are unbelievable. This church will always be a stop for us in Saint Petersburg
