      Church of the Spilled Blood & St. Isaac's by Private Vehicle & Guide

      St. Petersburg, Russia
      From (USD) $236 Per Vehicle
      • St. Isaac’s Square: Dominated by St. Isaac’s cathedral dome, St. Isaac’s Square is home to some of Russia’s most impressive architecture.St. Petersburg’s main administrative area, it is picturesque both during the day and night.
      • Spit of Vasilievsky Island: Flowing around the perimeter of this island are the Malaya Neva and Bolshaya Neva Rivers. Forming the Vasileostrovsky District territory, the majestic borough is the area’s most fascinating island.
      • Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood: Following his fatal wounding in March 1881, Emperor Alexander II was buried at this Russian-style church. A resemblance of 17th-century Yaroslavl churches, it is architecturally dissimilar to other city structures.
      About this St. Petersburg tour

      St. Isaac’s Square’s history began to transpire from the 1730s-1740s – a time when it was a designated trading zone. From salt-selling stalls to marina planning on the Moyka River, it soon transformed into a built-up area, with imposing buildings being erected some 20 years later. Approximately 100 consecutive years passed until construction was complete.

      Following Catherine II’s demise in 1796, Mikhailovsky Castle became the point of transfer for the marble contained inside the square’s parochial building. Before one of the world’s tallest cathedrals was finalized in the 1870s, Auguste de Montferrand’s demands for reconstruction were met. Architectural differences began to crop up in the early 20th century.

      St. Isaac’s Square may be prone to flooding, but the waters encircling Vasilievsky Island are enjoyed by more than 200,000 residents. Connected by Exchange Bridge, Blagoveshchensky Bridge, Palace Bridge and Tuchkov Bridge, the magnificent Rostral Columns and Old St. Petersburg Stock Exchange are major interest points. Capture panoramic images while strolling along pedestrian-only walkways before heading to the Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood.

      Constructed on the spot where revolutionaries bombed Alexander II’s carriage in 1881, this church was built between 1883-1907. Funded by private donators and the Imperial family, its more than 80,000 square feet of detailed mosaics and articulate exterior design make this holy spot a prominent photo stop.
