Welcome to Yekaterinburg

With plenty to explore and discover, Yekaterinburg is a fascinating city break destination.

  • Stand on the spot where the Ipatiev House, scene of the massacre of the Tsars, once stood, and take in the splendour of the Cathedral on the Blood, built in their memory.
  • Use your best haggling skills at the bazaar on the Lenin Boulevard, and pick yourself up a local Yekaterinburg memento.
  • Get a bird’s eye view of the city from the Antei Tower lookout.
  • Visit the haunting Black Tulip Memorial Complex, built in honour of the victims of recent conflicts.
  • Don’t miss the old wooden buildings and quaint theatres of the literary quarter, complete with a grand statue of Pushkin.
