There’s no need to say anything concerning this work. It speaks for itself. This church was built on the spot were Tsar Aleksandr Nikolaevich was assasinated by anarchist terrorists in 1881. That’s why it’s called the Church of the Saviour on the Spilt Blood. By the way, the new memorial church dedicated to the Royal Martyrs in Yekaterinburg bears almost the same name.
