St. Petersburg's most-photographed church and one of the main sights of St. Petersburg. Construction began in 1883 under Alexander III, as a memorial to his father, Alexander II. The Church is prominently situated along the Griboedov Canal. Both the interior and exterior of the church is decorated with incredibly detailed mosaics, designed and created by the most prominent Russian artists of the day (V. Vasnetsov, M. Nesterov and M. Vrubel).
