This Byzantine-style structure was built to honour the last Tsar of Russia, Emperor Nicholas II, and his family, the Romonovs, who were executed in 1918 by the Bolsheviks.
The church’s full name is quite a mouthful: the Church on Blood in Honour of All Saints Resplendent in the Russian Land. It stands on the site where the Romonovs perished a century ago - although construction on the church was only completed in 2003.
The church features a small museum honouring the family (note: the information is mostly in Russian).
