SAVIOR ON THE SPILLED BLOOD

The Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood is among the world’s most famous landmarks. The church was erected by a decree of Emperor Alexander III on the site where his father, Emperor Alexander II, had been fatally wounded in a terrorist act on March 1st 1881. The church is 81 meters high, which corresponds to the year of Emperor Alexander II‘s death, while the second highest dome reaches 63 meters, which corresponds to the Emperor’s age at the me he was assassinated.
The renova on started in 1972 and lasted around 25 years. The joke had it, that the momentthesca oldingaroundthe church was disassembled the Soviet Union would collapse. It was disassembled exactly in 1991.

    “What to see in Moscow? There are many options. As for us, we went to Pokrovsky Sobor straight after buying CityPass. According to the guidebooks, it is one of the best places to visit in Moscow. We saw Pokrovsky Cathedral on many postcards and knew that it was a religious symbol of Moscow, that’s why it was our first choice. And only then we went to the Kremlin. Being so individual the exterior and interior of St. Basil’s Cathedral are impressive. It’s a true eye candy! We really liked the picturesque view of the Red Square and the Moskva River from the cathedral viewpoint. By the way, using the pass we skipped the line which was great! The line was huge during the FIFA World Cup. Apparently, it is not so easy to get the tickets to St. Basil's Cathedral during the high season. With Moscow СityPass you just need to show it to security guards and they will let you go to the ticket office to validate the pass. Inside the church you can also get an audio guide. Highly recommended!”
