More than that, it is the place where some of the country’s most fascinating and memorable historical events have taken place -- including the murder of the Romanovs, the Gem Rush, and the spot where Russia’s first president rose to power. It should go without saying, Yekaterinburg offers plenty by way of historical and cultural activities.
One of the best things to do in Yekaterinburg is to explore the city on a self-guided walking tour. Though there are many sights to see in the Russian city, the “Red Line” tour is a three-mile loop that leads travelers past the most important spots, including the square of 1905, the state opera, the Rabochaya Molodezh and many more notable places in Russian history. From the heights of the Vysotsky viewing platform, travelers can enjoy stunning views across the city skyline.
Downtown Yekaterinburg is one of the best places to stay in the city. Home to the heart of the commercial district, there are plenty of restaurant and nightlife options here, as well as the Vysotsky building.
