Verkhnyaya Pyshma and Yekaterinburg

The day started out with us standing on the line between Europe and Asia. I never really thought of Russia being on a continent. It seemed big enough to be its own.

 The Romanov family was the topic today. There are monuments, parks and museums dedicated to them. Such a tragic story for this family. Peace on earth is the theme everywhere. 

 The Russian Orthodox Cross 
 The Romanov family. They were all murdered one night in thier basement. Lots of interesting stories surrounding the circumstances. 

 This area is the mine that the bodies were disposed of. There are Lily's growing in it. 
 Small chapels are all around the site. They are each unique and beautiful. There is a reverent feeling here. 

 This was one of my favorite building that I saw in Russia. Look at that color!
