About
Built to memorialize Alexander II following his assassination in 1881, this magnificent church with Italian pink marble floors and numerous mosaics was modeled after 16th and 17th century churches, contrasting sharply with the prevailing architectural styles.

Historical monument. Fully restored with beautiful artwork (inside and out). The history and story of the church is absolutely stunning. We are lucky it survived such a hard road.

Enjoy viewing the opulence of the Czars. I hope you still have money to visit as I did. But enjoy it quickly because your fearless leader is destroying your country by destroying your neighbors to the west. Your money is worth nothing and you can earn $1M for killing fearless leader! You will be held accountable and allowed no where else in the world.

Impressive temple, both outside and inside.
The Russian-style temple is very similar in style to St. Basil's Cathedral in Moscow, especially the domes, some of which are gilded, and some are multi-colored enamel.
The domed bell tower is similar to the Ivan the Great Bell Tower in the Moscow Kremlin.
The interior of the temple is striking in the first place with an abundance of beautiful mosaics, which were made by the leading artists of Russia of that time, including Vasnetsov and Nesterov.
Definitely worth a visit!

Although quite a long name, however, due to its uniqueness, I couldn’t have any difficulty remembering its name by heart. I crossed the Canal through Italian Bridge, which is on the mid-way to my walk from Nevsky prospect to church.

The Church of our Savior on the Spilled Blood is, undoubtedly, one of the best attractions of the city. It dates back to the late 19th century and was constructed by the order of Alexander III. It was built on the spot where Alexander II was assassinated by social rebellions in 1881. Inside, the Church of the Saviour on Spilled Blood, you can see over 7,500 square meters of mosaics that make it one of the largest collections of its kind in the world. Its admission fee is 250 Rubbles.

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

Very beautiful, both outside as well as inside. The inside is very rich, there are many beautiful details. It is very touristy and gets crowded but still worth a visit.

As beautiful on the outside as the photographs portray, the tour inside was reminiscent-of most church tours in Europe. Lots of outside restoration being done makes photography difficult as the scaffolding is evident all around the church. But still magnificent to see the unique architecture!

A must see place in Saint Pet is Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood. It is included in my top-3 of cathedrals in the city, however the loveliest is Saint Isaac`s cathedral.
It has a breathtaking long history since it was founded in 1883 on the site where Tsar Alexander II was assassinated – therefore «spilled blood». The inner decoration looks majestically due to numerous of mosaics. The fact is this church has the greatest square of mosaics in the world with over 7.500 sqm of amazing artwork. Entry fee is 350 rubles and it was a bit surprising for us that excursion is included for free. Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood leaved me overwhelmed and awe, I would recommend it to visit.
