The Imperial Family.


As mentioned previously, the Ipatiev house was torn down in 1977 because it was becoming a pilgrimage. The Cathedral of the Blood was completed on that site in 2003. On the ground floor of the cathedral is the exact spot where the regicide took place (above [top] image). The image just below that is another memorial inside the cathedral. Below, the final resting place of the Imperial Family in the Catherine Side Chapel of the Cathedral of Saint Peter and Saint Paul in St. Petersburg.

Below, the Catherine Side Chapel along the Neva River. The family has been consecrated by the Russian Orthodox Church as Holy Martyrs.
