History and Culture
A region that mesmerizes, attracts and loves. If you only come to the Sverdlovsk region once, you will want to come back here again and again. Even Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, who lived here for only 15 months throughout his life, remembered this place with awe.
It is necessary to come here at least because the Sverdlovsk Oblast is on the border of Europe and Asia, the motorcycle capital of Russia is located here, the mining of precious metals has been developed for many years, and no one will be left indifferent to local landscapes!
Are you interested? Then join us and take a trip to the most spectacular sights. Visit the city, where the largest fair of the 17th century took place, and you can still hear its echoes. See a samovar that can drink tea for 2,500 people at a time! Visit an abandoned quarry where expensive gemstones used to be mined. And that's just a small part of what you'll have to do in three days.
Book hotels along the route with cachebacks up to 10%.
