Pssssst. . .
Wanna hear a secret?
The churches here in St. Petersburg are amazing!
Really and truly amazing. And maybe even a little . . . over the top!
Sometimes, it's hard to decide whether they're more impressive from the outside. . .
or the inside.
And, yeah. People get real excited about the whole "spilled blood" thing. . . but take our own digs here. . . at St. Isaac's Cathedral . . .
The biggest Russian Orthodox cathedral in the city! Why . . . just look at that dome!
Why. . . there's no denying it's BEA. . .
YOO . . .
You know the icons? Yeah. . . those big guys . . . hanging on the wall?
I hear some people think they're paintings! You and I know, though. . . that they're all mosaics! Millions and millions of tiny little tiles. Just like this guy . . .
From the floor. . .
to the ceiling. . .
We are FABULOUS!
