Saint Isaac’s Cathedral in St. Petersburg, Russia is the largest church in the city. It was constructed by the Architect Auguste De Montferrand in the early 19th century. The dome style uses cast iron as a support system, and granite and marble is used on the outside of the cathedral. On the interior, it is said to have over 400KG of gold. Today, it is one of the most popular places for visitors to visit and if you climb to the top of the dome, you are rewarded with amazing sights of the city. On the inside, if you stand in the centre not only will you feel small (due to the dome structure) but you will also see a white dove right in the centre skyline.
