MONASTERY AND CATHEDRAL

THE CHURCH OF CHRIST'S RESURRECTION


From the Kazansky bridge, in Griboyedov Canal perspective the Church of Christ's Resurrection (Usually called The Savior on Blood) can be seen. It was put up to commemorate the tsar-martyr on the site where on March 1, 1881, I.Grinevitsky, a member of the People's Will society, mortally wounded Emperor Alexander II.
 

The church was put up with the money collected all over Russia. Architecturally it revives the traditions of the 17th-century Russian church-building. In particular, the compositional techniques and shapes used are similar to those characteristic of the famous Pokrovsky Cathedral (Church of St. Basil the Blessed), that stands in Red Square in Moscow. The church stands out for its complicated and picturesque outline, as well as rich and multicolored decoration.
 

The facades are faced with glazed shaped brick and ceramic tiles as well as decorated with mosaic panels. In the decor of interiors Italian marbles and Russian semiprecious stones are used. The church is interesting as a kind of an architectural accent in classical surroundings.
 

Moreover, the interior is unique, boasting of the mosaic panels made in Frolovs' workshop to the originals by outstandmg Russian artists, including V.Vasnetsov, M.Nesterov, A.Riabushkin and others. This is the largest mosaic ensemble existing on the church facades and interior walls.
