A 102-metre dome and 14,000-person capacity: truly incredible!
Bound to impress!
The French architect Auguste de Montferrand is to thank for this majestic building, which simply cannot be described in any other way. This impressive cathedral was built between 1818 and 1858. A wooden church dedicated to the monk Isaac once stood on the site of this spectacular building, whose main dome rises a staggering 102 metres high. Four monumental porticos formed by various granite columns stand at the cathedral entrance. The capacity of this cathedral is astonishing: it can accommodate up to 14,000 people! In 1931, it also became a museum and you can even go up to the dome colonnade and enjoy the splendid views of Saint Petersburg.
