DETAILS

  • Shopping

This tour offers you an exciting opportunity to view St. Petersburg from a completely different angle. You’ll see the city from the water surrounding its numerous squares, monuments and palaces.


Your coach will bring you to the pier in the city center, where you’ll start a fascinating journey through the rivers and canals of the ‘Venice of the North.’


Visit the magnificent Cathedral on Spilled Blood, built in 1907 on the spot where the Russian Tsar Alexander II was assassinated in 1881. In a strikingly original way, the architect incorporated all the features of old Russian churches, embellishing it in exuberant style with ornate decorations loosely modeled on St. Basil’s Cathedral in Moscow. The area covered by mosaics is about 23,000 square feet, believed to be the largest indoor mosaic work in the world. The best painters, masters of mosaic, stone carving, ceramic and enamel of the 19th-20th centuries, took part in the decoration of the church.


An outstanding feature of the interior decor is a variety of Italian colored marble and Russian semi-precious stones. The painstaking restoration of the church started in 1974. The restorers employed only the same type of materials and technology used when the cathedral was built, including 30 kinds of rare marble and about 100 types of precious stones. In August of 1997 the Cathedral of the Savior on Spilled Blood was re-opened to the public in all its original extraordinary appearance. You'll also have some free time for shopping on this tour.
