Owner description: 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.

This church is beautiful. Without a doubt, one of the icons of St. Petersburg.

Mosaics such as the haunting images of Christ make one realize that this was created as the film of centuries past. Incredibly moving.

Centrally located, and a just beautiful example of Russian Historicism art - even if you have no idea what that is, you will enjoy it!
