Located at the meeting point of two continents, Yekaterinburg serves as the cultural capital of the Urals region.

Served by an international airport offering a convenient connection to both Moscow and Saint Petersburg, the city also boasts an extensive network of local trains, making it an ideal base for exploring the Ural Mountains.
