Church of the Savior on Blood


A visit to St. Petersburg, Russia isn’t complete until you step inside the ornate and gorgeous Church of the Savior on Blood!  The multi-colored exterior and medieval Russian architecture of the Church draw millions of visitors per year.

The Church was finished in 1907 and erected on the site where Alexander II was mortally wounded.

This was my favorite of the four Churches/Cathedrals we visited while in St. Petersburg!
