St. Isaacs Cathedral

St. Isaacs Cathedral is a unique monument of domestic architecture and one of the best cathedrals of Europe. It is one of the paragons of Russian religious art.

The artistic decoration of the cathedral includes a first-rate collection of Russian painting of the mid 19th century counting over 150 works of art, including those by well-known artists, such as Karl Brullov, Vasiliy Shebuyev, and Fyodor Bruni. More than 300 statues, sculptural groups and relieves displayed here were created by Ivan Vitali. 60 mosaics by Russian masters play an important role in the interior decoration. Here one can observe a stained-glass window 28.5 square meters large. It is one of the largest works of the kind and is undoubtedly of great interest.

Numerous paintings, mosaics, sculptures, and stained glasses, as well as the impressive combination of colored stones and gilding create a rich palette.
