Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood

An icon of St. Petersburg, sitting right on one of the endless canals that snaked their way throughout the city.

 

This church "earned" its name by being built on the site of Tsar Alexander II's assination. The church was built as a memorial to the Tsar by his son, Alexander III, and still has the cobblestones where Alexander II spilled his blood open for viewing inside the church.
