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.

words cannot describe this gem. The amount of times I used "Wow" was so many I stopped saying it. This is one of those must sees with history that cannot be missed. We used the st Petersburg card to gain entry and this was good value for money

Its incredible interior and exterior dazed me! The entrance fee is very low and definetely worth the visit. The whole interior is made with mosaics from semi precious stones and the altar made from one piece of marble. Its just stunning!

As gorgeous as it is from the outside, it's equally gorgeous within. You'll find yourself with a sore neck afterwards - the artwork and murals within cannot be missed.

Must go in Saint Petersburg, outside there are souvenir shops. While you need to pay for a small fee to enter, it is very biblical and special on the inside.

The church is one of the most beautiful buildings I've ever seen - mosaics covering the inside from floor to ceiling. I wish we had spent more time here on our tour, because I could have spent a couple of hours, but even during our brief stop (30-ish minutes) we were able to see some amazing works. Definitely a must-see... More

It was well worth a walk to this beautiful church. Breathtaking on the outside with a historical story of great importance. Extremely unique and wonderful on the inside as well with floor to ceiling mosaics. A truly artistic and interesting church that must not be missed.
