Romanovs' Dynasty in Yekaterinburg

Yekaterinburg, the so-called "the third capital of Russia", is marked by a number of crucial historical events, which shouldn't be overlooked as minor episodes. Moreover, after visiting the capital of the Urals, one cannot help admiring this great land due to its wealth of gifted people and a great variety of traditions. But there are some notorious facts in the history of the Urals and, particularly, in the history of Yekaterinburg for in this very place the family of the Russian Emperor Nicholas II spent its last days. Since the fates of Yekaterinburg and Romanov's Dynasty are tightly interwoven, we'd like to communicate the information about the Emperor's family to the guests of the Urals.

The tour brings us close to grievous facts in the Russian history, which are, nevertheless, characteristic of each country.

Three assassinations of the members of the Emperor's family are known to take place in the Urals: Michael, the younger brother of Nicholas II, was killed in Perm (unfortunately, his burial place hasn't been identified so far); Princes the Great Romanovs, the close relatives of the Emperor's family, were assassinated in Alapayevsk (located 100 km from Yekaterinburg); the Emperor's family proper were inflicted reprisals in Yekaterinburg. Interestingly enough, all the three assassinations happened to have taken place almost at the same time (during the period of one year).

You'll follow the last way of Romanov's Dynasty and visit the place of the former Ipatiev's house, the museum of Yekaterinburg's ethnography, exposing wax figures and authentic photos of the Emperor's family, and, at last, the monument nearby the village of Koptyakie (situated 30 km from Yekaterinburg), notorious for being one of the places of assassinations.
