Russia Things to Do: 285 reviews and 525 photos
The blue-yellow intricately tiled and painted multi-domed Church of the Resurrection of Christ (Khram Voskresenia Khristova) is another feast to the eyes.
It is built along Griboedova Canal between 1883-1907. Apparently, this was the spot where Alexander II was blown up. So, this church is also known as the Church of the Saviour of the Spilled Blood (Khram Spasa na Krovi).
I don't usually visit the interior of churches, especially those that ask for charges but this church is truly magnificent... on the outside.
I read that it took 24 years to build and 27 years to restore. Very lovingly built and restored, I must say. The evening sun casts a gorgeous light to it.
