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.

It was being refurbished but we were still able to get some great photos of all of the color domes. I highly recommend going to see this!

Really beautiful church. Try to go in before 5pm as the tours close and can’t access the insides. I would recommend as it’s a part of the cultural heritage.

This amazing church will just move you to tears. Its grandeur and splendor are of another world. I recommend going early and planning on spending at least an hour inside. A guided tour is recommended. The mosaics have been recently renovated, so it is really beautiful, more than the mosaics at the St. Mark's Basilica in Venice.

This is one of the most beautiful churches I have ever seen! The exquisite tile work is mind blowing! The detail and the beauty is unmatched. I don't think you need a guide to appreciate the artwork but you may want one to hear about the history. I tried to take pictures but it just couldn't capture how beautiful it was in reality.

An interesting interior with an equally interesting story behind the building of the church. Try to visit when in St Petersburg.
