A Not to Be Missed Site in St. Petersburg


    

The Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood is often referred to as the Church of the Resurrection or the Savior on Spilled Blood. With its five decorative multicolored domes, the beautiful architecture is quite different as compared to other buildings in St. Petersburg. It was interesting to learn that the construction took about 24 years and after extreme vandalism, another 27 years was devoted to restoration. We could have spent hours admiring the not to be missed mosaic collection inside the church.

Social Media Description

Do you enjoy seeing churches when you travel to new countries?

We've overheard lots of people say things like "please, not another church"! While I guess I could get tired of too many churches, I have this desire to see everything. (Yes, I know it's not possible!) A two day tour with spbTours will be a highlight of your time in St. Petersburg. The Savior on Spilled Blood Church is memorable - both inside and out.

Do you seek out churches when you travel, or do you try to avoid them? #WordyExplorers #russia #StPetersburg #SpilledBlood #mosaics
