Church Of The Savior On Blood - Review
Previously known as Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood, this iconic landmark is one of the most important destinations in Saint Petersburg. Being a major attraction, the church attracts hundreds of thousands of tourists on an annual basis.
Established on the site where Tsar Alexander II was assassinated, the church was dedicated to his memory. Alexander III commissioned the construction of the church in the name of his father and it turned out to be a memorial fit for the gods.
One interesting point about the architecture of the church is that it differs quite a lot from the typical structures that are found in Russia. Straying away from the neo-classical and baroque styles of architecture, this church was constructed with a touch of Romantic Nationalism sensibilities that is uncommon among Russian architecture. The church authorities claim that it has over seven thousand four hundred square meters of mosaic which is greater than any other church in the world.

Church Of The Savior On Blood, Saint Petersburg Reviews
The most beautiful church in the city in my opinion. The exterior is of the of unique Russian style and interior is completely decorated with thousands of square feet of mosaics. It is just spectacular! They allow to take pictures inside which is nice. The church is still a working church but open to tourists everyday and it’s a must visit. The exterior of the main dome is under restoration these days but interior is completely done. The ticket is not expensive at all and you can even buy souvenirs inside which goes to the church fun in aid of maintaining it I believe.
Every building in this city is worth a visit, but only if you know the history behind that building. The church on the Spilled blood is worth a visit even if you don't know any history. If you do know why this church was build on this spot and why it has this specific name, then it just make it more of a must to see. The place where Alexander the Second was mortally wounded, this church was build by his grandson. Inside you can see the spot where he fell. The church looks great from outside, but do yourself a favor, spend the money and go inside. The huge mosaics is worth the visit. Another must see in this city.
I have not been to any Saint Petersburg Cathedral I did not fall in live with immediately, but I fell in love with the architecture of Savior on the Spilled Blood a long time before I ever saw it. It is a wonderful cathedral inside and out. Wheelchair users: You should also always call ahead to find out if there is wheelchair access to bars, clubs, museums, and restaurants. In most cases the answer, sadly, will be in the negative. Alternatively, assume it is inaccessible and hire a few people to lift you and your chair up the stairs, and then be sure to pay very generously for the assistance.
The church of impressive architecture, but also the interior. Mosaic in the church is one of the largest in the World. Next to several thousand beautiful buildings in St. Petersburg, church Savior on the Spilled Blood is perhaps the most beautiful. The Church is the symbol of the city.
Such a vibrant city and such a extraordinary church its so vivid and vibrant it's so unique and such a deep history behind. This is a must visit in this beautiful city. Interior is a must not only the exterior!!!
