There are many beautiful churches in Moscow, and The Church of the Savior of Spilled Blood definitely falls into the beautiful category.  Russia seems to have magnificent architecture, churches created in ways that I have never seen and this church is an example of that.

This church was started in the late 1800’s and was finished around 1907. It’s patterned after St. Basil’s Cathedral in The Red Square in Moscow. There isn’t much for me to say about this except I think the architecture is phenomenal and I was in awe of this church.
