Several interesting places to visit
„Yeltsin Center” is one of the brightest and most fashionable sites of the city, which unites the museum and modern creative space. The permanent exhibition devoted to the first president of Russia B.N. Yeltsin is held here, as well as regular.
Monument „Europe — Asia”. Stepping from Europe to Asia is an obligatory ritual for every tourist in the Sverdlovsk region. The border is very close to Ekaterinburg and the nearest monument marking the meeting point of two parts of the world is located on the 40th kilometer of the Old Moscow Tract.
The leaning tower in Nevyansk is one of the mysterious legacies of the Demidov family, a source of legends and secrets. Previously, it housed the Office, a laboratory and even a lockup. Today, the guests will visit the room with a unique acoustic effect and also see the chiming clock created in the XVIII century and still functioning.
The Verkhotursky Kremlin complex. It includes the Holy Trinity Cathedral, Voivode House, Departmental offices, Treasure House of district status, Czar’s storehouses and Kitchen premises. It is the only Ural city with the Kremlin built by order of Peter the Great.
The Urals region has often become the arena of important historical events. People in the Sverdlovsk region and Ekaterinburg are sensitive to history: exhibitions of different formats are regularly held in museums, and the city hosts significant events.
For example, the region will host the international festival „Czar’s Days” in memory of the tragic death of the Royal family on July 6-17. Culture-historical, musical and educational events, meetings with well-known historians and cultural figures, as well as special divine services are planned. One of the venues will be the Church-on-the-Blood erected on the site of Ipatiev’s house, where Nicholas II and his family were shot.
