Explorer’s Scrapbook: The Church of Our Savior on Spilled Blood

This beautiful Russian-style church in St. Petersburg, Russia, was built on the spot where Emperor Alexander II was assassinated in March 1881. The church was built between 1883 and 1907 and is officially called the Resurrection of Christ Church (a.k.a. The Church of Our Savior on Spilled Blood). The church was closed in the 1930s when the Bolsheviks went on an offensive against religion and destroyed churches all over the country. It remained closed and under restoration for more than 30 years and was finally reopened in 1997 in all its former glory!
