Enjoy time and see the wonderful Catedral please respect the place and don't take picture at the altar is the only place in the Catedral you can't not take picture. The rest you can. is beautiful
This is an amazing architectural marvel. The video explanation of how the columns were put in place, is well worth watching. Despite all the stairs, the views from the colonnade were spectacular - don't miss it. This isn't our favorite cathedral as it felt more like something you might find in Italy, France or England than a true classic Russian experience.
There are always huge queues in summer during the day but not at night. Go at night, and since the white nights are light till midnight it's just as good to see and there are far fewer people. (And you can find a seat and just gaze at the ceiling.)
If you don't like visiting museums and cathedrals that much, do take a ticket to the very top of the cathedral only (~2 EUR) for an amazing city view from the collonade. Crowded and a long walk up and down though.
