Basically, the city’s history dates back to 1723 when it started to build the largest iron processing plant in Russia. In fact, the city name is in honor of Catherine Katalin.
At the “Yekaterinburg Mintin Plant” from 1725 until the October Revolution are coined Russia’s coins.
In addition in this city is arrested and executed Nicholas II of Russia and his family. Between 1924 and 1991, the city had the name of Sverdlovsk in honor of a Bolshevist. The city (a military center) was declared a closed city during Soviet times, so it was not possible to visit it.
Yekaterinburg is a city on two continents: is situated on the banks of the Iset River with on side in Asia, while the other side in Europe.
There are plenty of attractions to remember the Soviet times: Lenin shows the way for his comrades to the Town Hall. There is also the Romanov memorial where the Romanovs were murdered. In 1977, it is transformed into a museum with the powerful contribution of Boris Jelcin. The 55-story high skyscraper, the Vysotsky tower, is worth a visit.
The most significant church in the city is the Virgin Mary church with typical golden-yellow onions. And sculptures, lots of statues, museums and churches again and again.
The international airport of the city, Koltsovo offers easy access and, not least, the city is one of Russia’s most important railroad junctions, with 7 lines departing in all directions.
In closing, I wish you nice sightseeing and great fun!
