AIRVŪZ STAFF NOTE :
Saints Peter and Paul Cathedral is one of the great landmarks of St. Petersburg, Russia's #2 city and erstwhile capital. Seen here in this excellent drone video by FLycam24, the Orthodox church is situated within the walls of the Peter and Paul Fortress, on an island in the Neva River. Completed in 1733, it's the city's oldest building. Distinguished by its 123 meter (over 400 ft.) gold spire, it's the final resting place of (among others) Tsars Peter the Great, Catherine the Great, and (after a 80 year hiatus) Nicholas II.
