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 our online itinerary creator, Nevyansk attractions like Leaning Tower of Nevyansk can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

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.
Посетили это место случайно. Была прекрасная августовская погодка и сверкающий шпиль башни был виден издалека, ещё на въезде в городишко. Подъехали и обрадовались, что попали сюда. Как тут здорово!

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!
Marvellous construction. Legendary tower.
The best place of the Ural region
Cool! the famous incline Tower .... not to be confused with a falling ... It is not clear why it was built with a slope of ...

It is not known why not only so, but also who this masterpiece of architect but also when it was built. It is known that built in the 18th century on the orders of Demidova and everything else is history silent ....
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.
If you come closer and look at the size of bricks towers, it is understandable why tourists remain impressed. Of course it is not difficult to learn the story of demidovs and Peter the first Pro Gold and iron. But that's not the most interesting thing in this, I believe, great exposure. A little in introducing the life of those years well worth notice how huge was a technological breakthrough and how embarrassingly this tower looked. I would compare with a tower in Dubai, there are stunning impressions!
