During your city highlights tour of St. Petersburg, you will visit St. Isaac’s square with the majestic St. Isaac’s Cathedral, continuing to the Cathedral of Peter and Paul.
One of the city’s oldest places of worship, Peter and Paul Cathedral has been the burial vault of Russian tsars since the times of Peter the Great. Almost all representatives of the Romanov dynasty up to Alexander III are buried there. The cathedral was preceded by a wooden church of Peter and Paul, built behind the walls of the eponymous fortress in 1703.
St. Isaac’s is one of the most remarkable and splendid domed edifices in the entire world. It ranks fourth among the largest Christian basilicas. Its construction took 40 years.
The cathedral’s grandeur is emphasized by its quadrangle features. Stonemasons have used 43 distinct types of rock. The cathedral’s basement is faced with granite, the walls with blocks of gray marble 40 to 50 centimeters thick. The gilding of the dome itself took about 100 kilograms of pure gold.
