Yekaterinburg (Екатеринбург)

The most important city in the Ural Mountain region of Russia, Yekaterinburg is a major center of machinery and metal processing. Known as Sverdlovsk during the Soviet era, it is perhaps best known as having been the place where the Russian royal family was murdered shortly after the Bolshevik Revolution - an event now memorialized by a giant church and adjoining chapel in the city center.
