Things to do: sightseeing, religious sites, museums
Located at the meeting point of two continents, Yekaterinburg serves as the cultural capital of the Urals region. Established in 1723 on the orders of Peter the Great, who needed a metallurgical center in this part of his empire, the city developed into a financial and industrial powerhouse by the beginning of the 20th century. Served by an international airport offering a convenient connection to both Moscow and Saint Petersburg, the city also boasts an extensive network of local trains, making it an ideal base for exploring the Ural Mountains. Before you head out of town, soak up the local culture by exploring Yekaterinburg's vibrant restaurant scene, a growing favorite with impassioned foodies from around the globe. Our Russia travel itinerary planner allows you to plan your trip to Yekaterinburg and a wealth of other destinations big and small.

Where to stay

Whether you're looking for luxury or basic lodging options, Yekaterinburg offers a good selection of all types of accommodation. The city is home to several high-end hotels, including international chains and locally owned options, as well as numerous economy options. Budget travelers can choose among several hostels, while those who prefer self-catering lodging can find a great number of apartments all over the city.
