Trip Planner: Europe / Russia / Northwestern District / St. Petersburg / Petrodvortsovy District / Peterhof / Sobor Petra I Pavla
Visit Sobor Petra I Pavla and admire its red-brick walls, glazed tiles, ornate decoration, and five spires arranged in the shape of a tent. The story goes that the cathedral was built in the Neo-Russian style in 1904 for common people, who were not allowed into palace churches. A viewing platform around the church's 60 m (197 ft) high central spire provides views over the marshland and pine forest all the way to St. Petersburg. The interior of the church features three icon-stands: two made of white Carrara marble and one of majolica. Climb the high, well-lit gallery to look for the special places for consecrating eggs and Easter cakes. Work out when and for how long to visit Sobor Petra I Pavla and other St. Petersburg attractions using our handy St. Petersburg trip planner.
