Great Urals Journey - tour around Ekaterinburg Russia, 1 day

Offer for those who have a limited amount of time, but want to see as much as possible.

Going on a trip or business trip, we prepare in advance and first of all we want to know: sights, cultural places, entertainment, hotels in the area we are coming soon. Prominent sights near the city of Yekaterinburg: the Europe – Asia border, the monastery "Ganina Yama". We suggest you to visit them during the tour "The Great Urals Journey".

Three components of an unforgettable day on the "Great Urals Journey":

- Sightseeing tour around Ekaterinburg, visiting all its major attractions.

- The most "friendly" border of the continent – the border between Europe and Asia. For crossing it no document needed, but emotions - more than enough. Not many people could boast of being standing with one foot in Europe and the other in Asia!

- The third place is tragic, amorous, detective story - the last days of Russian Royal family of the sovereign Nicholay II Romanov in July 1918 in Yekaterinburg. Questions that are unanswered even now. The unique monastery "Ganina Yama" with beautiful wooden temples of modern felling but preserving the spirit of old Rus - 7 churches = 7 members of the family = 7 new Saints.
