Amazing mosaics and well worth a trip inside to take a look especially as the entrance fee was only around £2.50 so even if you only spend 10 mins inside it is good value on a cold day

We visited this church, erected to mark the spot where Alexander II was assassinated in 1881. An incredible construction full of mosaics, built as a memorial by Alexander III. Don't miss it when you visit St Petersburg.

Built on the site of the assassination of Alexander II, a magnificent interior to match the exterior. Best seen on a sunny morning.

This is the place which shows up in all the movies, photos and every other place when they want to show St. Petersburg; and for a very good reason - it is beautiful. Though I feel it's much more beautiful from outside than inside. St. Isaac's Cathedral has much better mosaics and wall paintings compared to this Church -- but... More

It is a strong competitor to St.Basil's Cathedral in Moscow, however we like it more. It's worth taking photos not only outside, but visiting inside for amazing frescoes and icons.

The architecture is so different that one is automatically drawn to this building. Inside, it is certainly one of the most impressive churches I have seen.

Amazing architecture! You will go around the church making numerous photos and every time you will think that there is more beautify view. Inside is breath-taking. Charming picturesque area with streets sellers and street artists creating their pieces in front of you. Will amaze you at day light as well as with magnificent presentation under night lights. Fancy restaurant around,... More
