This is an amazing temple at the centre of St Petersburg. Great architecture and mosaic interiors. Also the ambience inside the temple is a special feeling as we were very lucky not facing any crowds. Definately to visit while staying in St Petersburg

This icon of St. Petersburg is impressive from the outside, but the inside is absolutely stunning! Some work is currently being done to the top of the highest dome, so it has some scaffolding covering it, but it doesn't take away from the overall beauty.

Unbelievable place, busy and a real cultural eye opener. A real storybook depicting the life of Christ all done in mosaic form. Huge Italian marble pieces. One can't help thinking back in recent history of what this place was.

It is very easy to get around Saint Petersburg just by walking and is also very easy to go to the Church of the Spilled Blood.
