The Cathedral of the Resurrection is unique in its style and is made of five chapels with the bell tower beside, surmounted by a golden dome. It is beautiful both for its shape and for the multicolor covering changing from bright red to blue and green.

The Church of the Savior on Blood or Cathedral of the Resurrection of Christ is the most fascinating and spectacular church of Saint Petersburg, from an architectural point of view. With its peculiar gaudy colours onion- shaped domes, it stands... more along the Griboedov canal. The works started during the reign of Alexander III in 1883 and ended at the beginning of the twentieth century, with Emperor Nicholas II. The Cathedral stands exactly where Tsar Alexander II was assassinated by an anarchist, on March 13, 1881. Inside, it is breathtaking since it is covered, roughly, by seven thousand square metres of mosaics, realized by different Russian artists.
