Chelyabinsk ©
The industrial city of Chelyabinsk has a markedly Soviet feel, but is a great destination for exploring mountain life in Russia.
Step out of Chelyabinsk with an excursion to Kaolin Quarry in Kyshtym--about 1h 30 min away. There's still lots to do: examine the collection at Museum of Labor and Fighting Glory, contemplate the long history of Eternal Flame, stroll around Gagarin Park, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Pedestrian Street Kirovka.
