Ganina Yama - Romanov family

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.
