Full description
Join a 3-hour guided tour and visit the State Hermitage Museum and Church on Spilled Blood. The Church on Spilled Blood is St. Petersburg’s most magnificent monument. While inside admire the acclaimed pictorial compositions and multicolored decorations of the church, built on the site where Tsar Alexander II was assassinated. Marvel at the fine details of biblical scenes that cover the walls and ceilings, including the mosaic of Christ Pantocrator under the central dome. With your guide, take advantage of skip-the-line access to the Hermitage Museum. Walk through the halls, which include more than 3 million works of art and world culture representing Antiquity, Western Europe, the Middle East, Russia, and many more epochs, countries, and regions.
