Thousands of Orthodox Russians have been remembering the killing of the Russian imperial family 90 years ago.
Tsar Nicholas II was shot with his family by a Bolshevik firing squad in the basement of a building of Yekaterinburg, a year after the 1917 Russian revolution.
Thousands of pilgrims walked from Yekaterinburg to Ganina-Yama, some 20km to the north, where the remains of the tsar and his family were buried.
The bodies of the imperial family were initially disposed of down a mineshaft, and a wooden cross now marks the spot.
In Yekaterinburg, a church has been built on the spot where they died.
The tsar and his family were canonised by the Russian Orthodox church in 2000.
