Urals District travel guide

4.4
Monuments · Landmarks · Specialty Museums
Simply called "stone" in ancient times, Ural District boasts the country's major mineral resources, such as natural gas, coal, oil, and gold. Stretching along one of the oldest mountains on Earth, on the border of two continents, the district features a magnificent landscape dominated by steppes and forests. Picturesque meadows speckled with daisies cover the lower parts of the mountain slopes. Beyond its splendid nature with protected parks and reserves, ice caves, and hot springs, the district also has much more to offer. The starting point of any trip to the Urals should be Yekaterinburg, a city of museums, theaters, and libraries, as well as some bizarre outdoor sculptures. Among the cultural and historical attractions spread over several small cities are also the ancient Slavic city-observatory, the famous falling tower and an open-air museum of wooden architecture.
