An incredible experience. The exterior is quite special, but the interior is marvelous & breathtaking. The murals & décor are spectacular. A true sample of Russian religious devotion. Made all the more special by seeing it in winter.

We were impressed. By everything. Insides are mindblowing, and the view from the colonnade on the city roofs is worth climbing all those steps for.

Beautiful cathedral and complex. This church is absolutely gorgeous and a MUST-SEE while in St. Petersburg. Inside is just as fabulous as the outside.

Easily one of the most impressive buildings I've seen anywhere in the world. The inside is stunning. The pictures don't do it justice.
