My Trip to Russia. Part VII Ekaterinburg


The House of Music





The estate of the richest merchant in Ekaterinburg. He loved to party and drink, they said during the parties there fortunes were lost gambling and drunk merchants washed their horses with champagne

Residence of Vladimir Putin in Ekaterinburg

Iset river





The Damb (on Iset river. The centre of the city).




I forgot the significance of this building, but one of the things that makes it unique is its architectural style...




Cathedral "On the Blood", at the place where the last Russian emperor Nikolay II and his family lived and were killed. 






The last walk of Nicholas II and his family as they descend the stairs to the dungeons where they were shot.
