You can reach here easily via a car (we booked an Uber ride), but getting out was not as easy, because of the lack of Internet reception in the area. We managed to ask the locals for help, and saw a bus schedule at the...More
This is a very significant site in Russian history and is certainly worth a visit for that reason. According to the “official” version of history, this is where the bodies of the Romanovs were brought and thrown down a disused mineshaft. A more recent version...More
You'll get a feeling of how emotional this place is. It is hard to swallow that Tsar Nicholas II and his entire family was shot and dumped and buried under a road. Why such a horrific act and not just keep them under house arrest?...More
Our guide Ekaterina and driver Alex took us here today. Very informed guide with great English. The buildings are stunning and evoke Russian nostalgia.
Whether the Romanov family ended up here or not, the story is certainly a key part of Russian history and folklore....More
You must visit this complex if you are in Ekaterinburg. Don't mind the half an hour distance, it is well worth it.
Tip: Arrange or book your return taxi upfront as there is no internet over there. I asked a favor from the owner of...More
Ganina Yama was a must do as part of my personal pilgrimage to visit sites relating to the end of the Romanov Dynasty and the beginnings of Soviet Russia. The mine is the site where the bodies of Tsar Nicholas II, his family and a...More
Magnificent setting among forest and parkland vegetation. Buildings exemplify the exquisite timber craftsmanship seen also in other parts of Siberia. Churches are quite magnificent. Afternoon tea yummy and very Russian with cottage cheese cake. Excellent commentary by Guide Mariana.

Hi! Trip in Russia is not difficalt. There is many kinds of transport, hotels and helpful English speak peopls.In many places in Russia there are objects associated with the Romanov dynasty. However, to begin acquaintance, I would recommend the starting from Yekaterinburg and Ganina Yama and from there to move to St. Petersburg, and for completeness of sensations it is better by train (the journey takes two nights and one day). Already from St. Petersburg, which is better to stay at least a week, if you have the time, you can easily get to Moscow for a few days by train or plane.I do not know if such a tour is ready. I prefer to plan my visits myself. But in every major Russian city it's easy to find offers of popular local excursions, and in Moscow and St. Petersburg it's generally a big separate business with a lot of options for any wallet.
