  Petropavlovskaya krepost 3 ,   Petrogradsky          (+7) 812 230 64 31     more than a year ago
Visitors to the Cathedral are now allowed to ascend the bell tower of the Cathedral, climbing stairs to a height of 43 metres to enjoy a panoramic views and perhaps get acquainted with Orthodox music. Here one can look at the church bells and chimes – instruments which are connected to a clock mechanism and a Carillon, an instrument connected to a keyboard and a system of 51 bells, from which any music can be played with this specific and unique sound. For history buffs, along the tiers of the tower are drawing and photographs connected with the history and construction of the building, drawing of the metal spire and of the rotating angel weather vane.
