It is raining when we arrive in Yekaterinburg. An appropriate setting for the purpose of our visit to this city, which is known for the massacre of the Romanov family a hundred years ago. At the place where the Bolsheviks murdered Tsar Nicholas II and his wife and children, the last Tsar’s family, you can now find the beautiful white Cathedral on the Spilled Blood. A tribute to the Tsar family, this has become a real pilgrimage. We wander through Yekaterinburg for a day, which, in addition to an impressive lookout tower over the city, also has memorial sites for the Romanovs, some museums and especially many industry areas. Still a good place to stretch our legs during the Trans-Siberian journey.
