Здравствуйте, друзья!

Here goes a really great card I got via official postcrossing! Thank you Evgeniya!

The Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood 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, its official name.

This Church was built on the site where Tsar Alexander II was assassinated and was dedicated in his memory. It should not to be confused with the Church on Blood in Honour of All Saints Resplendent in the Russian Land, located in the city of Yekaterinburg where the former Emperor Nicholas II (1868–1918) and several members of his family and household were executed following the Bolshevik Revolution.

I like it how colourful the churches in Russia are. They are really nice to look at.

I send love!
