Yekaterinburg Tailormade Holidays

Yekaterinburg is the first major stop in Asian Russia on the Trans Siberian and the gateway to the Ural Mountains. It is known as City of the Romanovs, as it is synonymous with the bloody murder of the Romanov family in July 1918. In 1991 archaeologists found bone fragments of 9 bodies in a shallow pit near Yekaterinburg which were revealed to be the remains of the Romanovs. Tsar Nicholas II and his family were finally given a dignified burial and laid to rest in St Petersburg SS Peter and Paul Cathedral in 1998. There much mystery surrounding the gruesome events of July 1918; the remains two of the Romanov children Alexis and Anastacia were never found. Did they escape and continue the royal blood line? Despite many claims, nobody knows for sure.

During a visit to this colourful city you can visit the Byzantine style Church on Blood which reveres the Romanovs and is close to the partially demolished house where the executions took place. 10kms out of the city, you’ll find the beautiful Monastery of Martyrs – Gamina Yama, a cross marks the spot where the Romanovs bodies were discarded.

Whilst in Yekaterinburg, take a stroll down Lenin Prospekt in the heart of the city, where you’ll find an interesting market and plenty of shops and eateries. There is also a military museum and the Ural Geology Musuem.

Have you ever been to Asia? Just 32 kms out of town you can stand with one foot in each continent at the Europe-Asia border marker!
