Enjoyed our entrance to Savior on Spilled Blood. 7000 square metres mosaic tile. We tried to figure out how they did it. The Onions domes were superb 😍

Our third visit to the city and unbelievably, the first time we've stepped inside this glorious building. Don't be as foolish as we were - go inside right away, as soon as you can, for however short a time you have. You won't regret it!

Awesome building when seen for the first time. Beautiful interior with outstanding art on walls and ceiling. Tip: Ask your hotel to book taxis instead of using outside rank.

Just a gorgeous church outside. Beautiful from all sides. Watch for pick-Pockets working the crowd with their fake souvenirs to distract you.
