Savior on the Spilled Blood



The church of the Savior on the Spilled Blood (The Church of the Resurrection) was built on the site where Emperor Alexander II was mortally wounded by a terrorist. Alexander II the Liberator was one of the most prominent statesmen of his time. His social, military and economic reforms turned Russia into a truly great power. The cathedral features Russia’s largest collection of mosaics, including the collection of Russian heraldic mosaics. The section of the street with fragment of the canal iron-cast railing, where the tsar’s blood was spilled, was enclosed within the walls of the church.
