Lonely Planet review

Officially known as the Church of the Resurrection , this multidomed dazzler, partly modelled on St Basil’s in Moscow, was built between 1883 and 1907 on the spot where Alexander II, despite his reforms, was blown up by the People’s Will terrorist group in 1881 (hence its gruesome name).
