Tour itinerary:

We would like to offer visiting the Church of the Savior on the Spilled Blood in addition to the standard guided city tour.
The most striking diamond in the crown of St. Petersburg is the Temple of Savior on Blood. This beautiful cathedral attracts tourists from all over the world due to its originality of architecture, richness of decoration and interior.

The temple was built on the site of Emperor Alexander II assassination by terrorists on March 1, 1881 on the embankment of the Griboedov Canal. Hence the name of the temple: On Blood. To commemorate the memory of the martyr-czar it was decided to erect a cathedral. The construction of the cathedral became the popular affair. From all parts of Russia people carried precious stones and materials for the church interior decoration Icons, frames and other church attributes were made at well-known factories in all parts of Russia.

The cathedral, standing 8 m tall, was built in 1893-1907 by the architect I.V. Makarov, and A.A. Parland. It amazes with unique architectural forms and rich colorful mosaic.
