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.

  • 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.
