The department of information policy of the Sverdlovsk region reports that a pilgrimage route is set to open on the 100th anniversary of the murders of Nicholas II, his wife Alexandra Feodorovna and their four children.
“It is expected that the route will pass through Moscow, St. Petersburg, Kirov, Perm, Ekaterinburg and Tobolsk,” they said in a statement. Pilgrims will be able to see The Church on Blood in Honour of All Saints Resplendent in the Russian Land, which was built on the site of the Ipatiev House in Yekaterinburg where the murders took place. They will be able to follow in the footsteps of the last Emperor and his family in Tobolsk and the village of Pokrovskoye.
The DNA testing currently being conducted on the remains of the last Imperial family by the Russian Orthodox Church has still not been completed, and results are expected sometime this quarter.
