The Church of the Savior on the Griboytow Canal, adjacent to the Mikhailovsky Garden and the Russian Museum, is a rare Russian building in St. Petersburg. In 1811, Tsar Alexander II was killed by the "people's will" members due to the failure of the revolution. From 1883 to 1907, the Cathedral of the Descent was built in the place where the Tsar was killed, hence the name. The design of the Cathedral of the Drips draws on the style of the Cathedral of the Assumption of St. Vasily. The colorful “onion head” top building is very eye-catching and magnificent.

Visited Savior on the Spilled Blood Church. Unfortunately, I was not able to enter since they were doing some repairs and constructions. All I can say is, Even If I just look at it from the outside, It’s so mesmerizing. All the intricate designs and details are just gorgeous! It’s also bustling with tourists.
Along the Nevsky Prospekt, the most prosperous street in St. Petersburg, you can see the Cathedral of the Resurrection of Christ in St. Petersburg, another name is the Church of the Savior on Blood, also known as the Church of the Savior on Blood, a church with historical stories, and The St. Bachlov Church on Red Square in Moscow has a similar twist. It is bright, colorful, unparalleled and heavy. It feels more like a candy house, so you can't help but press the shutter.
Twilight time, the sun sets, the afterglow of the sky is reflected in the red church, reflecting the golden light, so that the mosaic embedded in the church shines different colors, looks like a far away. The flame of the group burned in the gradual darkness of the sky. Perhaps the only distinctive color of the word can more closely describe the infinite charm of the building.
Speaking of Russian people will think of their church on top of the onion,
is best known as Vasily on the Red Square in Moscow.
The blood is also called the Bloody Cathedral, which was built in the imitation of Vasily.
is one of the landmarks of St. Petersburg.
The five cream tops seen outside,
is a beautiful dome in the church,
painted a mosaic mural of exquisite Orthodox.
Look at these panoramas and guess how Da Yi took it.
The Church of the Savior on Blood ( ), also known as the Church of the Resurrection of Christ and the Church of the Savior on Blood, was built between 1883 and 1907. It is a rare pure Russian-style building in the St. Petersburg region. Its blueprint is the tile on the Red Square in Moscow. Ascension Cathedral. On March 1, 1881, Tsar Alexander II was assassinated here. This church was built to commemorate him.
Alexander II was the eldest son of Nicholas I. After the Crimean War in February 1855, he realized that the Russian Empire had reached the edge of the social divide and began the most important society in his life. Political and economic reforms. This move not only strengthened Russia's reunification, but also expanded Russia's influence. In 1881, the populist group "the will of the people" assassinated Alexander II, who was reformed by the Lord, and caused the death of the tsar, known as the People's Liberation.
There are beautiful mosaics and murals in the building. The church is small but beautiful. Next to the church is the entrance to the Mikhailovsky Garden, behind the Russian National Museum. After playing, you can enter the Mikhailovsky Garden and go north, then enter the summer garden.
