Russia. The Urals. Ekaterinburg
Russia is one of the world’s largest countries running for thousands of kilometers, located in seven time belts and two continents. The culture of this country combines Western and Oriental traditions. Visiting Russia and its places of interest enables one to learn about our country’s history, traditions and hospitable people. Apart from monuments, palaces and churches, you will be able to see the new Russia with its modern architecture, comfortable hotels, restaurants, bars and night clubs.
Nowadays, Ekaterinburg is rightly called ‘Russia’s third capital’, and there are certain areas in which the city is second to Moscow only. The unique position of Ekaterinburg at the border line between Europe and Asia, coupled with the cultural life and rich history, makes the city an interesting tourist center. The scientific and business tourism is particularly on the rise due to local presence of various diplomatic missions and representative offices of foreign companies.
