A must-visit place in St. Petersburg!
The history of the church begins with a sad event. On March 1, 1881, the emperor Alexander II was mortally wounded. The memory of Emperor Alexander II is deeply revered in the cathedral. On the day of his tragic death, episcopal worship is held with a special commemoration of the murdered Sovereign.
Although the church has perpetuated a tragic event in the history of Russia, the nine-domed building impresses with its bright, colorful beauty. A special decorative effect of mosaics is achieved by strengthening the main background, clear boundaries of shades. Sunlight, entering inside the temple through the windows, illuminating mosaic icons and reflecting from them, fills the space with a soft glow. Come to Saint-Petersburg and appreciate the beauty of one of the most remarkable monuments of architecture in Russia!
