The Church of Our Savior on the Spilled Blood

The big cupcake in St. Petersburg is built on the spot where Alexander II was assassinated in 1881. Spilled blood, indeed.

Built in the Russian style, the church opened in 1907.

Inside, plenty of bright mosaics, plenty of people.

Beautiful dome.

Solitary moments among the crowds.

Exit through the gift kiosk.
