Full description
Explore the Church on the Spilt Blood, famously built on the spot where Alexander II was assassinated in 1881, in detail with your own knowledgeable and friendly private guide. During this tour you will visit the most unusually colored cathedral in Saint-Petersburg. The impressive church was built between 1883 and 1907, and was funded almost entirely by the imperial family. This majestic cathedral is a true gem of St Petersburg and you are bound to fall in love with its incredibly detailed mosaics. We will start this tour in the lobby of your hotel for private tours or the Grand Hotel Europe for group tours and then either walk to The Church on the Spilt Blood or take a taxi, the subway or some other form of public transport if your hotel is not in walking distance from the church. Your guide will show you around the insides of the Cathedral and explain the history and nature of this traditional Russian church. We will finish the tour at a place of your choosing.

Ksenia greatly enhanced our visit with her broad ranging knowledge

Our guide Ksenia greatly enhanced our visit with her broad ranging knowledge of both art and history. We booked a three hour tour but Ksenia was so interesting that the time went by quickly. She arrived promptly at our hotel as arranged and began her background description of the pl ace we were to visit, all done in perfect English. The whole trip was a pleasure.
