Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood is the rare example among St. Petersburg churches which looks like they were in Russia in the 17 th century. The building was specially created in neo-Russian style by 1907. It had to commemorate the Emperor Alexander II who was assassinated in 1881. The church is located on the place where he was seriously wounded by the member of socialistic club “People’s Will”. The church now functions as a museum and it is one of the best monuments of Russian mosaic art. The mosaics totally cover 7065 square meters of its interior part. That’s why this church is the real must-see being as well one of the largest mosaics collections in Europe.
