Travel Russia - Visiting the Cathedral on Blood in Yekaterinburg
Overnight procession marks 100th anniversary of last Russian tsar's death
Ipatiev house, Ekaterinburg
Ipatiev House was a merchant's house in Yekaterinburg where the former Emperor Nicholas II of Russia, his family, and members of his household were executed in 1918 following the Bolshevik Revolution. Its name is identical with that of the Ipatiev Monastery in Kostroma, from where the Romanovs came to the throne. It was demolished in 1977 by the Soviet Union, almost 59 years after the execution.
