This year’s Tsar’s Days events marking the 100th anniversary of the death and martyrdom of Emperor Nicholas II and his family will be held in Ekaterinburg from 15th to 17th July 2018. Organizers are anticipating more than 100,000 Orthodox Christians, monarchists, and others from across Russia and around the world to participate in the Divine Liturgy on the night of 16/17 July, and to join the 21 km Cross procession from the Church on the Blood to the Monastery of the Holy Royal Martyrs at Ganina Yama.
The press service of the Ekaterinburg City Hall has announced that the 2018 Tsar’s Days will have its own website, scheduled for activation on 15th March. The site will host a program of events held within the framework of the festival, an historical outline of the events that preceded the tragedy which occurred in the Ipatiev House in 1918, photo reports, commentaries by historians and clergymen, and much more.
The new Tsar’s Days site will complement two additional sites dedicated to the last Russian emperor and related events: Царским-маршрутом.рф and Царская-семья.рф both of which are already functioning.
