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.

  • At least once it is worth to go there. Big, beautiful. Not only the current Cathedral, but the museum complex. In the Museum part of the exhibited a number of exhibits dedicated to the last months of the life of Emperor Nicholas II and his family. The church operates a Sunday Church school for children from 6 years and older, as well as Bible studies for all comers.

  • Very beautiful temple! The place itself! Enjoy wonderful views of the city! Church on blood! On the site of the merchant House, where took the death the Royal family! Very many shrines in the temple! I advise all to be interesting! Pretty much drunk beggars who are in rough shape stick! The minus sign! But the soul sings after this place is a plus!

  • A beautiful temple, especially at night, when he went into the light of day, came out it was dark. Got a totally different look at Temple. Only works the lower Hall. Sorry, I appreciate all the beauty. On the contrary in small garden are figures of St. Peter and Fevronia patrons family.
