A beautiful panorama of the city opens from St. Isaac’s Colonnade. The Cathedral of the Resurrection of Christ or, as it is more commonly known, the Church of the Saviour on Spilt Blood, was built on the site where Tsar Alexander II was assassinated. It is a unique piece of architecture in the Russian style and the only Orthodox cathedral containing mosaic icons and ornaments covering the entire interior, from floor to the main dome.

Dostoevsky twice rented an apartment in this building on Kuznechny Pereulok: in 1846 and from October 1878 until he died on 28 January 1881.

Damaged, but not destroyed during the war, the palaces, museums and parks of the town of Lomonosov – many of which have undergone restoration in the last five years – have been preserved with the original 18th century decorative flourishes in all their authenticity.
