Cathedral in St. Petersburg

The Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood is one of the most recognized cathedrals in St. Petersburg. Built-in memory of the assassination of Alexander II, the cathedral took almost 24 years to construct and another 27 years to restore after Soviet destruction. It is characterized by its five ornate domes, which are covered with jeweler’s enamel. The interior of the church boasts over 7500 square meters of mosaics, more than any other church in the world.
