The Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood

The Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood is gorgeous in its beauty and scale. It is no wonder that it took around 24 years to construct and elaborate it.

The name is connected to the history of the Church. It was here that the Emperor Alexander II was fatally wounded. Despite the tragic history, the Church looks very solemn and beautiful: the iridescence of the multi-colored enamel on the domes, the magnificent paintings, the glorious stained glass, stone carving and mosaics.

The unparalleled beauty of the inner decor is of no less importance. The inner decor of walls contains over 7000 square meters of mosaics. The construction works and the consecration were put off for ten years due to creation of these masterpieces.

The proportions of this unique building are not random. During the excursion you will learn why the height of the central construction is 81 m, the height of the second highest dome is 63 m and many other interesting facts.
