St Isaac and the Church on the Spilled Blood

Under the Soviets, St Isaac’s was turned into the Museum of the History of Religion and Atheism.  It is still a museum, although there was a service going on in the left hand chapel.

The Church on the Spilled Blood is rather more exotic (to my way of thinking).
