Photo of the Week--1/26/09

The onion domes, the red brick, the colorful tiles: we knew we were in Russia. Our Baltic cruise had a stop in St. Petersburg, which was full of beautiful buildings and interesting sights. This was one of the most beautiful: the Church of the Resurrection of Christ. It's also known as the Church of the Spilled Blood, as it’s built on the spot where Tsar Alexander II was blown up by terrorists in 1881. We didn't get to enter the building, but with such a beautiful sky outside, we couldn't really mind.
