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. In addition, just outside the city in the settlement of Nizhyaya Sinyachikha is a wonderful open-air museum of wooden architecture.
