Savior on the Spilled Blood.
The orthodox Church and is an architectural landmark of central St Petersburg. Was built Orthodox Church at the place of death imperator Alexander II the Liberator. It features Russia’s largest collection of mosaics. Italian coloured marbles, decorative stones from the Urals and Altai region, as well as a collection of Russian heraldic mosaics. Architecturally, the Cathedral differs from St. Petersburg's other structures. The city's architecture is predominantly Baroque and Neoclassical, but the Savior on Blood harks back to medieval Russian architecture in the spirit of romantic nationalism. The church contains over 7500 square meters of mosaics—according to its restorers, more than any other church in the world. This record may be surpassed by the Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis, which houses 7700 square meters of mosaics. The interior was designed by some of the most celebrated Russian artists of the day—including Viktor Vasnetsov, Mikhail Nesterov and Mikhail Vrubel — but the church's chief architect, Alfred Alexandrovich Parland, was relatively little-known.
