      Burial site of members of the
      Imperial Romanov family found in Beijing

      English Translation by Nina Tkachuk Dimas

      Beijing. In Beijing it has been possible to determine the burial site
      of members of the Romanov Imperial family and their aides, killed in
      the Ural Mountain city of Alapayevsk during Russia's civil war . Their
      remains came to China with parts of the retreating White Army. It was
      determined that, on orders from Moscow, their remains, which had been
      in the Russian Spiritual Mission (now the site of the embassy of the
      Russian Federation), were buried in the Orthodox cemetery near the
      city's Andingmen Gate. After 1988, when the cemetery was finally
      liquidated, its territory became a park, and the section where the
      martyrs were buried became a golf course.
