The Church of the Resurrection, known as the Savior on the Blood, was erected on the site where, on 1 March 1881, Emperor Alexander II was mortally wounded by a bomb thrown by Ignaty Grinevitsky, a member of the People's Will organization. The church now constitutes one of the world's finest monuments of Russian mosaic art of the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

I completely failed at photographing this church, Julia. Partly it was due to a very short stop and a very dark, grey day. But even if conditions had been better, I strongly doubt that I would have taken anything nearly this good. Including so much sky and the wonderful small clouds somehow makes the ornateness of the church manageable rather than overwhelming. Excellent! Greetings, Marilyn
