Sometimes restauration works gets in the way for the perfect poscard shot. At display is the Church of the Saviour on the Spilled Blood. This five-domed dazzler is St Petersburg’s most elaborate church, with a classic Russian Orthodox exterior and an interior decorated with some 7000 sq metres of mosaics. Officially called the Church of the Resurrection of Christ, its far more striking colloquial name references the assassination attempt on Tsar Alexander II here in 1881. Following decades of abuse and neglect during the Soviet era, painstaking restoration began in the 1970s and took 27 years to complete - St Petersburg, Russia.
