Wooden chapel, Vosnesenskaya Hill, Lunacharskogo Street, Ekaterinburg, Russia

The old wooden chapel (1998) on the place where the House of Engineer Ipat'ev was situated on Vosnesenskaya Hill, in the basement of which the Tsar's family and 2 devoted servants were shot at night 16 July 1918. For many years the building served as the museum of the revolution with the room of execution as the main attraction. The building was destroyed in 1977 according to the secret directive of Politburo.

Interesting, it was a warm sunny summer day in the morning, there were not even clouds in the sky. Closer to the time of the ceremony, some clouds appeared from nowhere, and covered the sun.

At the moment the coffins were taken outside the church, it thundered and started raining.

By the end of the ceremony (which took about 45 minutes), the sun looked through the rain again. The coffins were placed in the cars, and left for the airport, to be transported to the last resort of former Tsars - St Petersburg. It was still possible to hear the sirens, when the rain stopped. Tell me it was not symbolic.
