ST. ISAAC'S CATHEDRAL COLONNADED WALKAWAY

The Colonnaded Walkway of the St. Isaac’s Cathedral not only became a major landmark of the city, but also its biggest observation deck. To get there you have to mount over 500 steps of a spiral staircase. The view over the city is magnificent. The walkway itself is encircled by 24 columns, each weighing 64 tonnes. Auguste de Montferrand, a French architect, developed innovative engineering solutions, which allowed such massive weights to be lifted up that high. Before him similar weights had never been lifted up higher than 40 meters.

Please note!
One of the doorways leading to the observation deck is only 70 centimeters wide.

    “What to see in Moscow? There are many options. As for us, we went to Pokrovsky Sobor straight after buying CityPass. According to the guidebooks, it is one of the best places to visit in Moscow. We saw Pokrovsky Cathedral on many postcards and knew that it was a religious symbol of Moscow, that’s why it was our first choice. And only then we went to the Kremlin. Being so individual the exterior and interior of St. Basil’s Cathedral are impressive. It’s a true eye candy! We really liked the picturesque view of the Red Square and the Moskva River from the cathedral viewpoint. By the way, using the pass we skipped the line which was great! The line was huge during the FIFA World Cup. Apparently, it is not so easy to get the tickets to St. Basil's Cathedral during the high season. With Moscow СityPass you just need to show it to security guards and they will let you go to the ticket office to validate the pass. Inside the church you can also get an audio guide. Highly recommended!”

    Thank you Moscow CityPass for unfogettable time in Moscow! We've bought 2 Passes, for me and my girlfriend. We saved around 90 euros and a lot of time! It was awesome to enter Kremlin and Tretyakov gallery without queues, because threre were really huge queues! And of course discounts in the top restaurants was preety addition :) Recomended to everyone who is going to Moscow ^ - ^
