Travel Notes

Selling murder 

A new tour takes travelers to places connected with the last days of the Russian Imperial Family. Organized by the center investigating the murder of the Romanovs, the 11-day tour is called “Russian Golgotha.” The itinerary starts in St. Petersburg and includes visits to Tyumen, Tobolsk, Alpaevsk, Perm and Yekaterinburg. The tour costs $1,500 for foreigners and about $400 for Russians (see Post Script, page 64). 

One of the sites on the tour will be the soon-to-be-completed Cathedral on the Blood in Yekaterinburg, which is located on the spot of the former Ipatyev House, the last residence and execution site of the Romanovs. The cathedral has already had a tragic beginning: four workers have died in construction accidents.
