Russia - The Resurrection Church

The Resurrection Church (the Church on the Spilled Blood) in St. Petersburg.

Sent by Johan, a postcrosser from St. Petersburg in Russia.

This is from Wikipedia : The Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood (Russian: Храм Спаса на Крови) Khram Spasa na Krovi is one of the main sights of St. Petersburg, Russia. It is also variously called the Church on Spilt Blood and the Cathedral of the Resurrection of Christ (Russian: Собор Воскресения Христова), its official name. The name refers to the blood of Tsar Alexander II of Russia, who was assassinated on that site in 1881.
