  • When we landed at the airport of Ekaterinburg, Koltsova us Commander announced that we prizemlis' in the capital of Ural and Ural gems. Sound is very beautiful! If reality was so beautiful in fact. As someone from the great said that disappointment, grinning, follows the enthusiasm. " So I'll start with the fact that after the words the aircraft commander, we immediately enthusiastically decided to visit the Vernadsky state geological Museum, where you can show the beauty of the Ural stones, if not in the capital of Ural. And here we are on the second day at the door of the Museum. On the ground floor guests are greeted by the largest museum exhibit, which staff affectionately called "Baby". This quartz crystal weighs almost a ton, but as found in the cavity of the crystals, he was the youngest, his so called-"Malyutka". You know, of course, interesting museums is compelling showcases products from various of the Ural stones, made by local craftsmen, interesting exposition dedicated to fallen meteorites in the Urals, including Dionisy. Children primarily were delighted by the exhibition of archaeological finds on the territory of the Ural mountains, where many were presented to the remains of extinct animals-mammoths, they also include, for example, cave bears, woolly rhinoceros, etc. Cool personally we adults know that the museums were the Communist Party of China Chairman Mao Dun, Prime-Minister of India Dzhavaharlar Nehru and Indira Gandhi, the head of Vietnam's Ho Chi Minh City and many others. But still for the present generation of children almost all these people are unknown and uninteresting, so data stands they are not interested. The Museum has over 40 thousand exhibits, for me was the opening of so many kinds and names of minerals, semi-precious and colored stones that are mined in one region of the country. But a visit to the Museum in the soul left frustrated because for the amount of exhibits it quite small, closely (between cabinets together not razojdesh'sja), mostly showcases in the halls of time 50-60-ies without backlight, with stones glued on printed very small print exhibition names the sample, just hovering dust (apparently due to the piling up of the exhibits removed to museums is difficult), as always in our museums require a supplement for photo/video capture Although it seems to me, is totally illogical, because the photos that make customers and then spread in social networks, just free advertising. I would encourage Nikita Mikhalkov to visit this Museum, I think then he'd be even more disappointed in "Ate @ CIN-Center for billions of rubles. We ourselves in this penny is definitely a foot! I would personally, given that the capital invested billions gems Ural in the construction of the new geological Museum, which should look like a Palace "mistress of the Copper Mountain". And now apparently is the capital of the Urals "Ate @ CIN-Center»

  • The ritzy Museum! Necessarily accompanied with a guide-learn a lot! Guarantee, unless you are a geologist. I am impressed. In addition, saw an entry in the book of visits of famous people who have left a big footprint in the history of the world (j. Nehru and Gandhi, and Tito, etc.). This says a lot!
