My Journey : Saint Petersburg, Russia; May 2012 – Part 3

Another place I have visited is St. Isaac’s Cathedral. Detail about it can be read HERE . I took a chance to climb up to the Colonnade to enjoy 360 degree view of Saint Petersburg city. Although I’m afraid of height, I manage to climb up the 262 steps and be at about 43 meter high from ground level. Enjoyyy 🙂

Granite column at the entrance. Few column had a marked that caused by sharpnels and bombs during the World War 2
