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.
