Savior on the Spilled Blood

St. Petersburg, Russia
4.8 / 80
The temple erected by Alexander III at the site of the assassination of the Tsar-reformer Alexander II. The height of the structure is 81 meters, which corresponds to the date of the tragic event - 1881. The cathedral was ready by 1907. Regular services were not held here, only services were organized in memory of Alexander II. During the years of Soviet power, the temple was used as a morgue and warehouse. After the 1997 repair, a museum was opened in the building.

One of the most beautiful churches in the world. Audioguide is available for a small extra charge (2.5 EUR), however fully worth it to get to know the story why this church was build and what the purpose is of the interior

The most beautiful part of this church were the millions of mosaics inside it. None of the pictures seemed to be painted. Every inch of the church is plastered in beautifully colored mosaics. Truly amazing.

Very beautiful church. I don't know how to explain but it was breath taking and so beautiful. Outside would be a large local market where you can enjoy shopping and some great coffee and ice cream.

This is the type of architecture we expected to see here in Russia and it amazed us both inside and out. It is a pleasant walk along the canal and we saw a man feeding sparrows on his hand, which made our day. A simple pleasure. There are many stalls.. Read more »

AMAZING ARCHITECTURE! It's one of the most iconical churches in Russia, with particular and very striking architecture, both inside and outside. It is a work of art, with hundreds of mosaics and a shrine decorated with precious stones.
