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

The exterior is very beautiful, nice interior, on the edge of a small park and very close to the Church-on-the-Blood and the Romanov Memorial. Definitely worth a visit. Also known as Voznesenskaya Church.

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...
