Key locations for filming in Ekaterinburg

One of the main locations of Yekaterinburg is the Church of All Saints. This temple was built in 2003 on the exact place where the Ipatiev House was situated. In the summer of 1918, in the Ipatiev House basement, the last Russian Emperor, Nicolas II, was executed along with his family. The five-domed temple represents the style, characteristic for the end of the XIX c. The site attracts tourists and pilgrims from all over Russia.
In the 1920s, the Soviet authorities decided to turn Ekaterinburg into an advanced industrial city. Ekaterinburg was actively rebuilt in the 1920s. That is why you can find the best examples of Soviet constructivism here. If you are looking for constructivist architecture check out the building of the regional administration, the so-called Chekists’ Town architectural ensemble, and the hotel ‘Iset’ building.
