    “On March 1, 1881, Alexander II was returning to the Winter Palace from a military parade accompanied by guards in a special armored coach built in Paris. When the carriage reached the deserted embankment of Catherine Canal*, a terrorist jumped out from behind a corner and tossed a bomb at the feet of the galloping horses. Once again the emperor leaped out unharmed from the shattered carriage, although two of the guards were wounded. Alexander went up to them. A crowd gathered. The attacker had been taken away.
    “Glory to God, Your Majesty, that you are safe,” muttered one of the guards.
    “Thank God,” replied the tsar.
    “It’s too soon to thank God!” shouted a man in the crowd and threw a second bomb at Alexander. This time the emperor was mortally wounded, both legs torn off. After seven successful attempts, the eight terrorist action succeeded. Brought to the Winter Palace, the emperor died within a few minutes. Ironically, on his desk was the draft of the long-awaited constitutional reforms, which he had planned to sign that day.”

    The church of the Savior on Spilled Blood was built on the spot of the attack as a memorial.

    * Nowadays called the Griboedov Canal, the name was changed in 1923.
