Interesting place of worship and museum, unfortunately no English (or other than Russian, for that matter) descriptions. Free entry, so can't complain...

This is a beautiful church in Yekaterinburg. We particularly liked the Icons and it's a lovely place to visit.

Nothing to dislike...this place is very close to center. new church in place of the one which was destroyed by bolshovniks. Excellent peaceful place. Great pictures of Last Russian Ruler and his family who were killed here during Red Revolution. Orthodox church at its best...
