St. Isaac’s Cathedral and Kazan Cathedral in St. Petersburg, Russia


Built in the mid-1800’s, St. Isaac’s Cathedral is the fourth largest Cathedral in the world and its main dome stands 333 ft. high and is plated in pure gold!  An interesting fact: the Cathedral sits on 10,000 tree trunks that were sunk into the ground.

With a church of this size, it’s impossible to convey what the interior feels like, but here are a few photos…
