Savior on the blood (Church on the Spilled Blood)


Savior on the blood (Church on the Spilled Blood)

Built in 1907 as memorial church to honour Russian emperor Alexander II, just on the spot of the crucial terroristic attempt upon him. A sample of "Russian style" architecture and decorative art at the edge of the XIX - XX centuries. Mosaic attire of the church (over 7,000 sq.m) was created from the designs of 30 artists, among them V. Vasnetsov, M. Nesterov, A. Ryabushkin, V. Belyaev, N. Kharlamov.
