St. Petersburg Stories and Tips

Did you know? St. Isaac's

St. Isaac's Cathedral has a colonnade around the top, you can buy a ticket and climb up to see the whole city as it's so flat. Beware the 'babuski' as you're not really supposed to take photos from up there.

St. Isaac's was built before there was such a thing as a crane, and given the weight of the marble pillars around the colonnade, building it was a pretty dangerous job. So many people were killed in the process that the locals refused for years to actually use it as a church.
