Church of the Savior on the Spilled Blood

Church of Resurrection of Jesus Christ is also known as the Church of the Savior on the Spilled Blood as it marks the spot where Alexander II was deadly wounded in an assassination attempt.

With its outstanding interior and architecture style of 16th-17th century Russian churches it provides a contrast to the classical surroundings. The collection of mosaics of the Savior on the Blood, which cover more than 7 000 square meters of interior and exterior of the church, is one of the largest in Europe.
