Owner description: Built to memorialize Alexander II following his assassination in 1881, this magnificent church with Italian pink marble floors and numerous mosaics was modeled after 16th and 17th century churches, contrasting sharply with the prevailing architectural styles.
Useful Information: Activities for older children

When we visit the church was under reconstruction or maintenance from the outside but as soon we got in we were amazed with the beauty of the construction, paintings and marbles decoration.

Extraordinary and beautiful church. Worth seeing but the place is also a tourist trap and as we had heard it's not that special inside, we only visited it outside.

It's an unbelievable work of art - how can it be mosaic and not a painting(s)? Seeing the intricate mosaic work here is believing
