This trip is worth focusing on the landscapes for which this region is famous: Marble Quarries, Ural Bali, the big Allaks. In order to have as much time as possible and not to waste time on snacks in cafes, stock up on hot tea in a thermos and a snack.
The journey begins! To make the journey go smoothly, we recommend stopping at a proven gas station to fill up a full tank of quality fuel, buy water and tasty snacks.
Not only nature, but also man is able to create something capable of striking the imagination. One of the places close to Chelyabinsk is the Balandinsk marble quarries. Now some of them are filled with water, which in winter is covered with a transparent layer of ice, which against the background of massive marble boulders creates a very interesting landscape.
The next most famous place in the Chelyabinsk region is, without a doubt, the Kaolin Quarry, which is popularly referred to as the "Ural Bali". In winter, this place is covered with a layer of ice of a bluish hue, which in itself looks incredible.
It's time to join the beautiful! For that, go to the Kasli Historical and Art Museum. Its exposition is quite extensive and interesting. There are a variety of sculptures, arts and crafts, and interactive extras, and even a small quest for the most inquisitive.

There is nothing more beautiful than completing a day trip on the shores of Lake Allaki, walking among the most bizarrely shaped stone blocks. And from the top of a small hill one can perfectly see the opposite shore of the lake and enjoy a marvellous scenery.
