When you’re exploring Russia, you usually end up in Moscow – and while the Russian capitol is beautiful and alluring, with excellent food and wonderful places to see, there is one thing yec.com travelers shouldn’t forget… Saint Petersburg! Petersburg is maybe even more beautiful than Moscow, with museums, restaurants and sights that will make your head spin – and one of the best ones is Saint Isaac’s cathedral!

Built in 1858 (but the construction started in 1818), it’s without a doubt the most beautiful church in all of Russia – mosaic icons, decorations, granite columns and paintings are priceless works of art!

Today, the church of Saint Isaac is actually a museum – religious ceremonies are held only in special occasions. The ticket price is more than affordable (around $10) and if you’re fit enough, you can clim its 300 stairs to the top and enjoy the view of Sankt Petersburg!

Fantastic décor and priceless art!
