Where in the World: the Church on Spilled Blood

The Church on Spilled Blood definitely stood out in St. Petersburg.  You really can't miss it.  It was built in tribute to Alexander II, built on the very spot he was assassinated.  He was a much more liberal tsar than most, but there were still political groups that wanted to make a statement.  Even though he was carried away to die, the church is built on the spot where he fell.

The spot


  1. Stunning! This would be an amazing place to visit, your very lucky!!!!

    1. There's a huge contrast of buildings in St. Petersburg but the ones the tours took us on are spectacular.
