Photo of the Church on Spilled Blood, St Petersburg in St Petersburg

The Church on Spilled Blood, in St Petersburg, Russia. Although this building isn't typical of the architecture in St Petersburg, it was exactly how I thought a Russian church would look. This church is sometimes called "Saviour on Blood" and was designed by Alfred Parland and Ignatiy Malyshev. It dates back to 1881 and was built as a memorial to Alexander II, on the site of his assassination.
