Church on Spilled Blood

Church on Spilled Blood

Built on the spot where Tsar Alexander II was assassinated on March 1, 1881 by a
revolutionary group. His successor, Alexander III, had this permanent memorial built between 1883
and 1907.

The design was by Alfred Parland and Ignatiy Malyshev. (Also known as the Resurrection Church of Our Saviour)
