Perhaps the most famous and in my opinion beautiful landmark in the city I’m beginning to love.

Church of the Saviour on the Blood proudly stands as a monument to Alexander II. As far as I know, it never was a functioning church.

“A competition was announced and Alfred Parland received first prize for a design created in collaboration with Archimandrite Ignatius (I.V. Malyshev). As Alexander III desired, the project was carried out in the style of Russian architecture of the 16th and 17th centuries. Consequently, the Church of the Resurrection of Christ, completed as late as 1907 and better known as the Church of the Saviour on the Blood, became the most exotic structure in St. Petersburg.”

Excerpted from “Saint Petersburg Guide: History, Architecture, Museums… Suburban, Palace-and-Park Ensembles” – ISBN # 5-88654-150-0.

Taken in St. Petersburg, Russia.

I desire to glorify God through all avenues of life and bless others in the process. Taking images of what He’s created with His hands, then sharing them – unrefined, is part of my expression.
