In the youtube video "Official Entries of Tsar Nicholas II and his Family around 13.05 there is a film clip of them passing monument with the date 1854-1856. This is most likely a Crimean war memorial. I would possibly say in Sevastopol.  Can anyone tell me where the monument is and if it is still around?

note in the video:
Alexandra doing a lot of head bowing
Maria N around 2.52 looking miserable
Ella in her nuns robes
Alexei being carried I would say during the 1913 tercentenary celebrations
Anastasia being somewhat shorter than her sisters

Yeah, would that monument still be there.  It might have been destroyed in World War II.

I made a post on this on the axis history forum forum.axishistory.com The Soviet Union at War 1917-1945 and got a reply: For the official entrances of Tsar Nicholas II and family 1854-55 memorial
the chapel was bult in 1912-1914 to comemerate the Romanov tercentury located on the site of a church destroyed during the defense of Sevastopol 1954-55 near the barracks of the 37th Naval Regiment. The church was demolished in 1928. The source the reply used was in Russian and I don't read the language. I hope this is of some interest and use. I think i have seen this film clip before.
