Yekaterinburg

Yekaterinburg is the main city in the Ural mountain range region. The fourth most popular tourist destination among Russian cities. The city was founded in 1723, its name alludes to Catherine I of Russia, the second wife of Emperor Peter the Great. Yekaterinburg is a modern city with a glorious past: the cultural, economic and industrial center of the up-and-coming Urals region. The city is located on the geographical border between Europe and Asia. The intercontinental dividing landmark is located 38 kilometers west of Yekaterinburg, where you can take your picture with a monument between Europe and Asia with one foot in Europe and the other - in Asia.

 

There is a sad story related to this city because it is the place where the family of the last Russian Emperor Nicholas II was deported and later executed. In that place the beautiful Church on Blood was built. Another place related to the history of the Romanovs is Ganina Yama (the Ganya's Pit) - a historical complex located 15 km north of Yekaterinburg in a picturesque forest.

 

The architecture of the city is a mix of styles from different historical periods, from classicism to the famous constructivism of the Soviet era. There are also modern high-tech buildings, for example, the Yeltsin-Center museum. With a modern and dazzling exterior architecture, it is a civic space and museum dedicated to Perestroika, the period when the USSR converted to the Russian Federation. The exhibition includes the latest technologies, authentic documents and many artifacts of the time.
