One of St. Petersburg's most celebrated cathedrals now finds itself beautifully depicted on a porcelain mug! The very ornate Church of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ, commonly known as Church of the Savior on the Spilled Blood, was built on the very spot that Czar Alexander II was fatally wounded by revolutionary assassins in 1881. It stands out in a city of Neoclassical architecture with its boldly medieval Russian nationalist style, resembling Ivan the Terrible's St. Basil's Cathedral. This dramatic history must cross your mind as the grandeur of the church's six fantastic onion domes graces your lips when you sip your favorite beverage from this colorful mug. The Cyrillic on the saucer reads "Church of the Resurrection of Christ - Saviour on the Blood - Saint Petersburg." If you have ever been to Saint Petersburg, or wanted to go, this souvenir mug belongs in your home. Let it elevate your mood as you lift it to your lips!
