(4.8/5 based on 95 reviews on the web)
The Leaning Tower of Nevyansk is a tower in the town of Nevyansk in Sverdlovsk Oblast, Russia, built in the 18th century. Its construction was funded by Peter the Great’s associate and a famous Russian manufacturer Akinfiy Demidov .The height of the tower is 57.5m from the ground and the base is 9.5m square. According to recent measurements, the deviation of the top part of the tower from a right angle is currently 2.20m. There is still no evidence to this day as to when exactly the Nevyansk Tower was constructed. Russian historians believe that it was built between 1721 and 1745. Also, there is no information about the architect of this unique edifice. The Weather Channel has stated that it was built circa 1732.The purpose of the towerHistorians are still debating about the exact purpose of the Nevyansk Tower. Some say that Demidov used it as a "bank safe", others believe it was either a watchtower, or a belltower, or a prison, or even a laboratory for conducting chemical experiments and producing counterfeit money. Some historians think that the tower was supposed to embody the might of the Demidov family and serve as some sort of an architectural symbol of their dynasty.

  • If you're in Yekaterinburg, be sure to visit this tour. Residents of Moscow and the field can compare with Nev'janska visit Suzdal. Here, too, bring students on all holidays, etc. at the entrance for 200 rubles you can buy a coin and mint in the tower by yourself during the trips is not difficult. I advise you to buy, will be a good memory. You will learn about a lot of secrets and legends associated with this tower. For example, on one of the floors you can hear each other in different corners of the room, talking to shepetom through the wall. In the tower are very expensive souvenirs. Tip: before entering the territory of the Nevyansk Tower has a small white shop. There is a very nice sales and prices in 3 times cheaper than in the store in the tower and the selection of the better! Buy after visiting!

  • Who lives in Yekaterinburg or rides travel NECESSARILY take one hour (maximum two) its time to explore the exhibition stand and go with excursion in an inclined Tower. Inspires and amazes its history, beauty and features of everyday life of our ancestors. (guided tours of course fee, but everything served informative and interesting).
