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.

You don't need a visa to visit sites or explore St. Petersburg if you are within the 72 hour excursion limits. Just purchase tickets at the kiosk in front of the church to gain entrance. I have a 3 year visa, but never... More
