Whether you are a republican or monarchist, I defy you not to be moved by the story of the murder of the Romanov family, and the church now built on the site. 100 years on, it's still hard to process.

It would be best to bring a local or a guide for a visit but it is definitely worth it. A place full of history, tradition and customs.

This is a beautiful church that has been built on the site where the Romanovs were killed. The house in which they were killed was apparently still standing until the late 1970s and which time it was removed before the 1980 Moscow Olympics. After the...More

This is one of the most beautiful and meaningful churches I have ever seen. Built on the site where the Zar and his family was killed, this is truely a site of a martyr and the family is commemorated in the most beautiful way.

Curiosity about the death of the Tsar and his family motivated to visit this spot. The building where the murders was destroyed under the communist regime, and it was only in the last 35 years that interest in marking this site was enabled. Inside is...More

I would suggest this place not because of the beautiful architecture as there many like this in this city or elsewhere. The purpose of visit should be more the history behind it. So try to study a little bit beforehands
