St.Isaacs Cathedral built by French architect in the heart of Saint-Petersburg in 1856. It took 40 years to build this architectural wonder. Built to become main cathedral of Russia St.Isaacs was opened as anti-religious museum in Soviet times. Lived through different periods of our history it is left intact and looks just as it did back in 19 century. I worked from soviet photograph taken in 1978. We had very few cars and buses back then. According to statistics only one family out of 7 could afford having a car.
