Ekaterinburg acts as the divide between Russia and Kazakhstan and has been dubbed the ‘window on Asia’ due to its proximity to the border. The city is commonly called Russia’s ‘third capital’ as it is ranked third for tourist activities, transport infrastructure, and economic size. It holds a special place in Russia for being the site of some history-changing events. A walking tour of the city is a great way to see the beautiful old architecture and the main attractions of historical importance such as the Church on the Blood, the site of the execution of the last Tsar.
Ekaterinburg also hosts several unusual sights such as the QWERTY Monument, a giant stone keyboard, the so-called ‘Mafia Cemetery’ where former Mafia members are commemorated with life-size images carved into stone, and during the winter an entire city block is made of ice. A visit to the Chinese Market with little outdoor stalls that sell almost everything is also a worthwhile experience. During the cold period, there are many opportunities to go cross-country skiing and some downhill skiing. Day trips into the surrounding area, for example, the Deer Stream National Park, is also an option and can be made by public transport.
The most beautiful sightseeing is the light and music fountain, located in front of the Opera and Ballet Theater.
