We take a break from the train and spend a day in the city of Yekaterinburg. It's a pretty utilitarian-looking place, and somehow manages to feel wintery even under the bright sun of a summer's day.

Standing out from the rest was the Church of the Blood, dedicated to the recently canonized Tsars murdered in the revolution. A U-turn from the pro-revolutionary monuments in St. Petersburg and Moscow.
