4.0
#1 of 22 in Historic Sites in 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 truly historic place. Near the temple there is a Museum, and a lot of photographs dedicated to Nicholas II and his family

    Very strange place: luzhkovskaja architecture in the center of Ekaterinburg. The upper Temple is permanently closed, the bottom is arranged many exhibitions.

    a beautiful temple, much attention is paid to exactly the circumstances in connection with which it was built. No more.
