Cathedral of The Resurrection - Church on Spilled Blood

Everything I am going to tell you comes from a book a girl at work lent me. This church is built on the spot where Emperor Alexander III was murdered in 1881. The outside is covered with semi-precious stones, enamel work and tiles.

It is the most beautiful church I've ever seen.

The whole inside of the church is tile mosaic!

This is the actual spot where Alexander was killed. Nothing has been done with this spot. You could actually see the old road inside this little area.

I do have a sneaky picture trying to get a shot of a babushka with purple hair, but since it has other people in it, I won't post it.

I saw another woman with purple hair today.....
