Church on Spilled Blood

The Church on Spilled Blood, a cacophony of colour just off Nevskiy prospekt, stands out in St Petersburg by nature of its Russian Revival style, something that is extremely rare in this city of Baroque and Neo-Classical architecture. Designed by Alfred Parland and Ignatiy Malyshev, the church, sometimes referred to as “Saviour on Blood”, was built as a memorial to Alexander II in 1881 on the site of his assassination. The sanctuary doors covered in semi-precious stones are particularly awe-inspiring.prac_infoKonyushennaya ploshchad • 315 9732 • Open May–mid-Sep: 10am–7pm; mid-Sep–Apr: 11am–7pm; closed Wed • Last admission 1 hour ...
