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

The main steeple of the Church on Spilled Blood. It's 81m (or 265ft) high. Metropolitan Nikon, seventh patriarch of the Russian Orthodox Church, banned steeples in the 17th century because they made Russian churches look too similar to western churches.
