The city of Alapaevsk has two main claims to fame: the composer Tchaikovsky spent part of his childhood here and, more infamously, members of the Romanov imperial family, including the sister of Empress Aleksandra Fyodorovna, were murdered outside the city. The city can be visited by bus from Nizhny Tagil or Yekaterinburg.
