Church on the Blood, Yekaterinburg
(4/5 based on 700+ 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.

  • Very symbolic, a beautiful monument, as the Church does not grab the "namolennosti", but it's a matter of time, probably because the people there are, not just tourists.

  • A beautiful Orthodox Church on the site of the brutal murder of the family of the last Russian Czar allows you to stop and become aware of the injustices of history. The memory of the last Russian Czar should be forever erased from human memory. Fortunately it did not happen. And that's good.

  • Almost everything, even the locals call it the temple on the blood on the model of St. Petersburg. But the real title of this temple, appeared quite recently the "Temple of all saints"
