The Church of Our Savior on Spilled Blood, Saint Petersburg
Think gingerbread house at Christmas time all painted up and ready to eat… sorry but you may be fooled, this is the incredible Church of Our Savior on Spilled Blood in Russia!
For ‘Photography Friday’ this week I’m giving you a little insight into my latest adventure to Russia. I’ve been a bit busy lately doing photography and blog posts for various companies (check out the list here), but don’t worry, over the coming weeks I’ll fill you all in about the trip right here on kiwifootprints.com.
In the meantime, have a squiz (look) into this incredible church in Saint Petersburg, Russia. It’s safe to say this was one of my main reasons for visiting Saint Petersburg and I wasn’t disappointed!
Excuse the not-great photography here, I was craning my neck the entire time to photograph the ceiling without my tripod on my little camera, so they aren’t great images, but I had to share them to you could be overwhelmed by all the mosaics that cover the inside and outside of this church.
This was this very spot that the canopy covers where Alexander II was mortally wounded.
