Chelyabinsk

Tank City

The industrial city of Chelyabinsk has a markedly Soviet feel, but is a great destination for exploring mountain life in Russia. Located in the heart of the Urals, travelers stop here en route to places like Tanganay National Park and Lake Turgoyak. It's easy to understand how the city can easily be overlooked for its lack of major landmarks, though it has some nice streets, an art museum, and a Russian church. However, it is a solid hub for outdoor adventurers, with plenty of hiking, climbing, and swimming nearby.
