A great place to visit. It has a great cultural importance. It was built just before the October Revolution in Russia.

Another highlight. Although not an active church anymore, still gorgeous with amazing mosaics and a chance to see one of Russia’s iconic churches

One of the places you must visit for the presentation either from inside or outside. Thanks to FIFA world cup the world could know about RUSSIA in this way. Their history and cathedrals and museums are one of the best in the world.

The mosaics inside this church are amazing. When you first walk in you think they are paintings until you get up close.

But you can go inside. Nearby is where they had bits & bobs for the World Cup in 2018. The sun was at an awkward angle when I was there & it took many efforts to get the "shot"! Fantastic!!

Carefully preserved inside is the exact spot of pavement where Alexander II was assassinated by Russian terrorists, giving this church its name (and also representing the real start,...More

The church is so ornate and beautiful. It is beyond description. The gold and the intricate tile work is amazing. I really recommend seeing with a tour guide as they give some history and back story that we would have missed if we did this...More

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.
