Route: Yekaterinburg - Europe-Asia border - Ganina's pit - Yekaterinburg
Duration: 5 h
The first stop of our tour will be at border between Europe and Asia. We will visit to three border places. The Ural Mountains are regarded as the border between Europe and Asia. To the west of the Urals lies European Russia, the cradle of the Russian culture. To the east lies the vast land of Siberia. You will visit the obelisk between Europe and Asia. It is one of the most famous and frequently visited places of the Ural region. You can put one foot in Europe and another one in Asia and take some unique photographs. When locals have a wedding they always visit the obelisk to take some photos and to drink some champagne with friends. On the way you will visit also the memorial complex, which was set up in 1995 in honour of the victims of Stalin's repression. After we will drive to Ganina's pit. Yekaterinburg was founded by the will of Peter I ("Peter The Great") Romanov. Later, Alexander I visited the city to look at this "Land of Gold". Few other representatives of the Romanov's House had been here before this time. But for the whole world, Yekaterinburg is the location where the last Russian Emperor Nickolay II and his family, savagely lost their lives. The czar's family was executed in the basement of Ipatiev house on the night 16-17th of July in 1918. Just after the well-known midnight tragedy the corpses were transported out of the city and put in an open mine (about 10 meters deep), called Ganina's pit.  There is the monastery there founded in 2000 after the visit of Patriarch Alexij II - the Head of Russian Orthodox Church. The church in the Names of Saint Newly Martyrs and five wooden churches have been built in honour of different Russian Saints on the place where the remains of the Romanov’s were burnt. The churches were built with the local timber without the aid of any nails. After we will back to Yekaterinburg.
