To Russia With Love….

Church On The Spilled Blood
St. Petersburg’s most elaborate church that took  24 years to build.  Consecrated in 1907 in memory of Tsar Alexander II and the assassination attempt on his life on this spot in 1881. One can not help but be overwhelmed by this structure as recognized around the world.
The Singer Building
The richest legacy of architectural styles found in St Petersburg is Style Moderne and one of the most beautiful examples is the former headquarters of the Singer sewing machine company which opened a factory in the Russian capital in 1904.
