Leaning Tower of Nevyansk, Nevyansk

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.

  • With friends, visited the Nevjanskuju inclined Tower in November 2017 onwards. Snow was not miserably cold and windy ... but Kseniya guide so clearly and positively all told, inspiring the rise ... As a result, we all listened, saw the truss system and lightning rod, "posheptalis" on 6-th floor (where in one corner can hear what is said in another), climbed to 7 floors (saw the work of the ancient clock mechanism) etc.

  • Visited this place randomly. Was a great August weather and the glittering spire of the tower was seen from afar, even at the entrance to the town. Pulled and were glad that landed here. How cool! Such a neat square. And the tower itself is impressive. Well than you not Italy? All around in excellent condition. Antiques exhibited in the courtyard. Walked and watched themselves without tours. In principle, its history we know. But see prevented!

  • Just super! Take a tour of the tower. This is what all advise! It is necessary to know the history of their native countries-Russia, particularly the Urals!

  • Tourist attraction, well placed "to flow". All things are pure, with pointers, souvenirs, all business. Came the car parking, clean the track next to the Tower, an administrative building. Inside toilets, cloakrooms and ticket office-pay for 350 per adult, 200 per child, get yourself a guide (we booked nothing in advance, there is a small squad ready guides) and forward. Tour of the Tower, then make children coins (150 rubles thingie), then in the local Museum in the same building, where Kassem (100 per adult, 50 for children), two floors of exhibits, exit through the room with gifts. Magnet for 60 rubles and back to the parking lot. You go home with sensitiveness domestication (and in the tower and the Museum interesting), easily in a purse and a bright mood. Everything about everything it will take three hours.
