Well on my first day of waking up in Russia, thought I’d better get out and explore!
They really did go to town with the architecture here, some of it really is stunning, and such intricate detail!
My first Russian cat sighting!
Visited the Church of Our Savior on Spilled Blood – very dramatic title for an equally dramatic Church!
It really is beautiful to look at, here’s a couple of pics, including a mandatory selfie!
Inside the church there are lots of beautiful, what I thought at first were paintings, but on closer inspection each and every one of them
was made from tiny little mosaic pieces – all painstakingly restored following years of being neglected while the church was used as a warehouse. All 7,000 square metres of them!
Here even the children’s playgrounds are works of art! This whole playground is made of mosaics! Very pretty.
