The Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood was built in the honour of emperor Alexander II, one of the most innovative and intelligent Russian tzars who was mortally wounded on this spot by the terrorist act in 1881. During the construction of the church engineers used advanced technologies of that time in laying the concrete base, creating the underground clay protection of the church from the subterranean waters and installing the air heating system. The Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood has a non-central architecture, it's facades are decorated with different materials like norwegian brown front brick, mosaics, dark red granite, pale and coloured marble, main dome is covered with jewelry enamel, small domes are gold plated. The interiors of the church include the largest collection of mosaics in Russia (about 7000 sq.m), precious stones and colourful tiles with total cost for more than 2 million golden roubles (1 million dollars). In the first half of the 20-th century the church was many times planned to be taken down, but in 1977 the total restoration started and continiued untill 1997 when the Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood was stately opened to public again.
