Owner description: Built to memorialize Alexander II following his assassination in 1881, this magnificent church with Italian pink marble floors and numerous mosaics was modeled after 16th and 17th century churches, contrasting sharply with the prevailing architectural styles.

We didnt enter this church and during our time there it was in the midst of renovation. Without fully completed it was already a beauty can u imagine what it will be when it is complete!

Should have enter it if given a chance and have enough time. Look like the twin of St Basil Cathedral =0

It is a beautiful Russian style church but since the top dome was under restoration we could not get good pictures. The mosaic work inside is remarkable.

Very cool to check out and unique architecture for this city as nothing else in St Pete is similar. Unfortunately they were working on it when I was there so part of the exterior was covered up but still way cool. Closed on a Wednesday so went back Thursday for an inside look. Very beautiful.

IF you are just walking in the Nevsky avenue, the look of the church, that suddenly appears from the corner, if able to know you down with its beauty and magnificense.

For me this is the crown jewel of St. Petersburg (top one among many great atractions), i would say even better than the St. Basils Church in Moscow, which is amazing too, don't get me wrong.

But again, for me, the facade is more impressive and the inside is beautiful. I'm not a religious person, so for me it doesn't carry any weight int that regard, what impressed me and kept me in awe is the mosaics inside and the way they did them.

Definitely go check it when you visit the city.

Keep in mind that, sadly, right now part of the Church is covered for restoration. (I'v seen it before on its full glory in previous visits)
