Church on the Blood, Yekaterinburg

(4/5 based on 750+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Were in the Church during an evening service, and therefore may have feelings were not complete. Definitely impressive story guide about all the points of the days when the Romanov family bid farewell to life. Beautiful temple building. Wish there were second-top. In the Museum premises really lots of photos of those days.

  • Is modern, there are depicted the various tsars and in the back you can visit a small museum with the history of Tsar Alwxsei II and his family. Bad point that everything is written in Cyrillic.

  • Very beautiful temple, be sure to visit only because of historical importance have occurred here, with the tragic consequences of events which we have to live for a century. But it is rather to the temple has nothing to do, this atmosphere that hovers in the air. Otherwise, alas, Church on blood is a business project and nothing more.
