Peter and Paul Fortress

Isaac Cathedral
This, the fourth largest cathedral in the world, is dedicated to Saint Isaac of Dalmatia, a patron saint of Peter the Great, who had been born on the feast day of that saint. It is also the second highest Orthodox church in the world, 101.5 meters high, behind the Cathedral of Christ the Savior of Moscow that reaches 103 meters. There were more than 40 different minerals used for its decoration. The plinth was covered with granite, the walls and floors of the interior of Russian, Italian and French marbles, the columns of malachite and lapis lazuli. In the dome of 21.8 meters in diameter, around 100 kilos of gold were used. The cathedral is adorned with 400 works, including sculptures, paintings and mosaics.

Excursion to the State Hermitage Museum
The Hermitage, Russia’s most famous palace and museum, is located within a complex of several buildings along the riverbanks right in the city-center. The general exhibition contains millions of art works: paintings, sculptures, archaeological pieces, numismatics objects and other artefacts.

Pushkin (Tsarskoye Selo)
Tsarskoye Selo (Pushkin) is the former residence of The Russian imperial family and visiting nobility. Tsarskoye Selo forms one of the World Heritage site. You will walk around the majestic Catherine palace (once the summer residence of the Russian tsars and now a museum) and will see the Amber Room – a reconstructed chamber, decorated in amber panels backed with gold leaf and mirrors, located in the Catherine Palace of Tsarskoye Selo. Constructed in the 18th century in Prussia, the original Amber Room was dismantled and eventually disappeared during WW II.

Peterhof
The Peterhof Museum Complex is one of the most popular museums not only in Russia, but in the whole world. Even a few hours here are enough to feel the spirit of history, which still lives on and breathes in this magnificent place.
