Church on the Blood, Yekaterinburg

Dedicated to the Romanov sainthood, Church on the Blood stands on the spot where the last Emperor of Russia, Nicholas II, and his family were executed. After being held captive during the Russian Civil War, Tsar Nicholas and his family, which included the famous Grand Duchess Anastasia, were killed. Bolshevik leaders carried out the executions in the Ipatiev House in 1918, which was demolished by Soviet forces in the 1970s. Visit the ornate Russian Orthodox church, built on the site in 2003.

  • A historical place with heavy aura seemed and beautiful views, so nothing special there, visited the Museum close by, the temple was the turn to the icons, not steel, in view of the limited time

  • ... visited with an ice sculpture exhibition around the Church. Extremely beautiful to look at even in winter in the snow.

  • Worth a visit if you are interested in the history of the Royal family. But this is no longer a temple and a museum. Winter at the temple very beautiful Christmas ice sculptures in the summer-poppy field.
