Recommendation by Lemi

The Church of Our Savior on Spilled Blood was built on the site of Alexander II’s assassination in March 1881. Construction began during the reign of his son, Alexander III, with the intention of memorializing his father. They even had a shrine made in the exact place where the late emperor died! Revel in the traditional Russian-style architecture visible in every nook and cranny of the church. Inside, over 7,500 square meters of mosaics cover the walls and ceilings, depicting significant biblical scenes and figures.
