Built on the spot where Emperor Alexander II was assassinated in 1881, this church is a lively profusion of brightly colored onion domes, glittering spires and a breathtakingly detailed mosaic interior. St. Petersburg's answer to Moscow's St. Basil's Cathedral

      I like the first shot where the beauty of the building is partly obscured by behind the tree. I like the design of the blue and green turrets - this must be both a happy and sad church.
