Pic of the Day - Church of the Saviour on the Blood, St. Petersburg, Russia - July 3, 2018

We frequently come across beautiful pictures of Orthodox Christianity in Russia while cruising the internets, so we decided to share them from time to time.

It is so true, a picture can sometimes tell more than 1000 words.

The Church of the Saviour on the Blood (Russian: 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.
