Built from 1883 to 1907, and funded by the Imperial Family, the magnificent Church on Spilled Blood is located on the site where tsar Alexander II was assassinated in March 1881.
Architecturally speaking, the Cathedral differs from St. Petersburg's other structures. The Church contains over 7500 square meters of mosaics—according to its restorers, more than any other church in the world.
