Trip Planner: Europe / Russia / Urals District / Sverdlovsk Oblast / Nevyansk / Leaning Tower of 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.To visit Leaning Tower of Nevyansk and other attractions in Nevyansk, use our Nevyansk trip itinerary maker.

Holiday festivities are not really prevented us from visiting major tourist sights: Nevjanskuju Tower, Spaso-Preobrazhensky Cathedral, monument to Peter 1 and Nikita Demidova. Entering through the front gate of the complex, welcomes you Spaso-Preobrazhensky Cathedral, Tower because it is not visible, but after going further than she appears in all its glory. At first it seemed that the tower is not inclined, but beating from different sides, convinced that this is not the case. We took the excursion service in the Museum and climbed the tower itself (without guided tours to visit the Tower not allowed), price 350 RUR. adult. It was interesting and informative to hear the myths and facts about the tower. Impressed:-the view from the top balcony of the Spaso-Preobrazhensky Cathedral and city pond; -The story about the lightning rod that was built before a quarter of a century, from the lightning rod, sponsored by the thought of Benjamin Franklin. -Auditory or acoustic room-hear how the microphone! -Portrait of Demidov Museum, which is written in a particular technology, and where you stood, Demidov is watching you all the time! On the territory of the complex are peddling souvenirs, you can forge itself a dime on memory (worth 200 rubles), there is a Museum, shrine inside the beautifully decorated with izrazcami and very large! We ate in the cafe "Sljavanskoe" (as told by the locals, they have one owner with Cafe "Simba")-tasty, home-style and inexpensively! In General were very satisfied with the trip! Come back again!
