Frequent question: What happened to Russia’s imperial jewelry?

What happened to the Romanov wealth?

Any ambiguity of ownership was settled very simply after the revolution, for all the Romanov assets in Russia itself were seized by the Bolshevik government. It took over the physical assets which remained: the palaces, the art collections, the jewels.

Is the house where the Romanovs were killed still standing?

Today there is nothing left of this house, for it was demolished in September 1977. On this very spot, now stands the Church on the Blood, a spot of pilgrimage honoring those who were killed brutally on that dark day in July many years ago.
