Church on Spilled Blood, St Petersburg.

You can't help saying wow when you come around a corner to see this church. We walked from our hotel, along a canal and various streets, but eventually there it was!
           I always thought that these domes were painted, but in fact they are constructed of tiles.
                                            Inside, all the art work is constructed of mosaics.
High above is the dome letting light into the body of the church. For more information about this amazing edifice, see here.
