Extra St. Petersburg, which for political reasons has also been called over the years Petrograd and Leningrad, is, after Moscow, the largest city and most important cultural center in Russia. Architecturally St. Petersburg is one of the most beautiful cities in the world, combining stately architecture with planned squares, wide avenues and many parks and gardens. One of its most grandiose buildings is St. Isaacs cathedral. As the legend on the exergue indicates, it was consecrated by Alexander II in 1858, according to the design of Auguste Monferrand.
