Shore Tours to St Petersburg

Both the exterior and interior of the Spilled Blood Church are a true sight to behold – adorned in gold and colourful and intricate mosaics. Discover this impressive building before enjoying time at leisure to browse the shops at the Nevsky Prospekt. 

A short transfer will take you to the Church of Resurrection on Spilled Blood – one of the most noted landmarks of St Petersburg.  The design of the church, selected after a two year search, was by architect Alfred Parland. The result was startling and beautiful - with golden domes, coloured spirals and textured cupolas it is a structure that bewilders and enchants the eye.

The interior of the church is a riot of colour - over 7,000 square metres of mosaics embellish it. More than 20 types of semi-precious stones including jasper, rhodonite, porphyry and Italian marble are lavished on icon cases, canopies and the floor. After the 1917 Revolution, the church was closed and served as storage for theatrical sets and scenery props, but opened again in the late 1990s as a museum after a 25 year renovation. Following the internal visit of the church you will have a little free time at leisure.

There is the opportunity to instead walk along the bank of the River Moika to Palace Square. There are no special dress requirements for this visit, as the church no longer holds religious services. Please be mindful of pickpockets in the city.
