About 100,000 pilgrims led by the head of the Russian Orthodox Church have walked 21 kilometers in a solemn procession commemorating the 100th anniversary of the killing of the last Russian emperor Nicholas II and his family.

The procession covered the distance between the Yekaterinburg Church of All Saints, built on the place of the house where Romanovs were killed in 1918, and the Monastery in the Name of Saint Regal Martyrs which now marks the site of the Romanovs’ grave, or rather the site where their killers dumped the bodies in an abandoned mine.
