The Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood is built on the site where Alexander II was assassinated. Inside this St. Petersburg church (now a museum), there's an amazing collection of murals. The very detailed and precise murals cover the walls, ceilings, domes and arches. Telling important stories of the life of Jesus, the astounding murals are why the church makes the "must see lists" of so many travelers.

Have you been to St. Petersburg, Russia?
Our first two post-retirement cruises departed from Copenhagen in 2016. One was a cruise to the Baltic capitals with two port days in St. Petersburg. Because the city is so unique and not as widely visited as many other cruise ports, we were very excited about our days. A tour with SPB Tours was perfect for getting to see many of the sites that the city is known for - including the Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood.
