“ Sightseeing Type: Churches / Temples „
The dome of this cathedral dominates the skyline of St. Petersburg. On a clear sunny day one can see the gilded cupola of St Isaac's from miles away on its downtown site. You can climb up the stairs to the observation point at the dome and get a breathtaking view of the fascinating St Petersburg. There were no elevators in the mid 19th century so you would have had to climb 300 stairs!
