The most beautiful mosaics! An absolute “must see” in St. Petersburg. Leave enough time to enjoy the incredible work covering the inside of this amazing church. The exterior is beautiful and instantly recognizable, but at least for me, it was the interior that exceeded expectations.

There is a lot of background history to this beautiful architectural gem. The walls and ceiling are decorated in mosaics and the floors and interior features are inspiring. The outside is simply stunning. Unmissable.

A great place to visit. It has a great cultural importance. It was built just before the October Revolution in Russia.

Another highlight. Although not an active church anymore, still gorgeous with amazing mosaics and a chance to see one of Russia’s iconic churches

One of the places you must visit for the presentation either from inside or outside. Thanks to FIFA world cup the world could know about RUSSIA in this way. Their history and cathedrals and museums are one of the best in the world.

It is very easy to get around Saint Petersburg just by walking and is also very easy to go to the Church of the Spilled Blood.
