Mosaics, Marble and a Resurrection

First completed in 1907, the Church of the Savior on Blood is currently part of the historic St. Isaac's Cathedral complex. Like many other churches and religious landmarks in St. Petersburg, it ceased to be used as a church in the years following the revolution and fell into disrepair.

In 2007 the extensive restoration of the church was finally complete. The public was able to view the exquisite mosaics and bright enamel domes of this unique building for the first time in many years. The church also contains an exhibition that details the history of the church's construction, decoration and renovation. Visit on a summer evening to see this incredible historic building in its glory from the outside as well.
