Local Sightseeing

The 1913 Hotel is within comfortable walking distance of many St. Petersburg's most famous visitor attractions, among them St. Isaac's Cathedral, the fabulous neoclassical church that was the life's work of French architect Auguste de Montferrand. Completed in 1858, the cathedral's interiors are lavishly decorated in marble and malachite, with intricate mosaics, while the gold dome is a city landmark. Equally essential is the cathedral colonnade at the base of the dome, which offers spectacular panoramic views over the historic centre.

Other sites on St. Isaac's Square include a famous equestrian statue of Tsar Nicholas I, designed by de Montferrand and the celebrated German-Russian sculptor Peter Klodt and the Mariinsky Palace, built by court architect Andrey Stackensneider as a wedding present for Nicholas I's daughter, Maria Nikolaevna. It now houses St. Petersburg's Legislative Assembly.

Heading south from the 1913 Hotel, it only takes around ten minutes to walk to the Mariinsky Theatre, St. Petersburg's world-renowned theatre of opera and ballet, which continues to wow audiences with its stunningly ornate interiors and high performance standards led by flamboyant conductor Valery Gergiev. Near the theatre, the St. Nicholas Naval Cathedral is one of St. Petersburg's most beautiful baroque churches.
