Sverdlovsk Oblast travel guide

4.2
Landmarks · Monuments · Lookouts
Sverdlovsk Oblast is best known for its capital city of Yekaterinburg, situated at the crossroads of Europe and Asia. Founded in 1723 on orders of Peter the Great, the city quickly became one of Russia's largest and most significant cultural, industrial, and financial centers. Today, Yekaterinburg serves as the regional hub of tourism, providing a comfortable base for day trips to the nearby ski resorts. The rest of Sverdlovsk Oblast remains relatively unexplored by travelers, though it contains several pristine natural reserves sheltering numerous plant and animal species native to the Ural Mountains. To add a bit of adventure to your itinerary, try scaling the region's highest mountain peak, rising to about 1,570 m (5,150 ft).
