What to expect

This experience is dedicated to the most unusual cathedral in St. Petersburg: the Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood - its name alone is worth a visit! Thanks to a multimedia audio tour app you will learn about the events that led to its construction, discover the secret of the appearance of the "Russian" church in "European" Petersburg, and examine its mesmerizing decoration.

Admire the temple from the outside and learn the history of its construction, and then walk inside and get acquainted with the peculiarities of its decoration. Hear about its unique mosaics, the fate of the cathedral after the revolution, and the ordeals that befell it during the siege of Leningrad. You will also receive recommendations for the best photo opportunities inside and outside the church.

What is the Savior and whose blood are we talking about? How did the cathedral, built in the traditions of Russian temple architecture of the 16-17th centuries, appear in this "European" city? And, finally, why does the building seem to "crash" onto the surface of the Griboyedov Canal, whose channel had to be narrowed at this point by 8.5 meters?

During the audio tour, you will hear the story of 7 attempts on the life of Emperor Alexander II, the last of which was fatal.
