St.Isaac's Cathedral, Saint Petersburg: 56 reviews and 95 photos
One of the big draws of St . Isaac's is the view over central St. Petersburg from the dome. If you enlarge the photo, you can see a few people on the last leg of the staircase (250-odd steps).
Buying a ticket for the colonnade was the first (and one of the only) frustrations I encountered on this trip. The day we visited, no one wanted to take my money. :-)
The bottom line is. . .tickets to both the museum/cathedral and colonnade are purchased inside St. Isaac's. The exterior kassas are for Russians only. . .if the staff inside tell you differently, they are simply being lazy and hoping that they won't have to go to all the trouble of giving you change and a stub. Stick it out through any confusion ~ it is worth it.
