Located on the eastern side of the Ural mountains, it is the main industrial and cultural centre of its region, a few kilometres away from the border to Asia.
Despite its ultra-modern skyline, it still presents some evidence of its prosperous trading past.
Today Ekaterinburg is a great centre for the heavy industry. The city is presently active in the production of heavy machinery, steel, chemical substances, tyres, oil and weapons.
This picturesque city is not only a prominent industrial centre, it also represents an entry into Siberia, the passage from West to East, from Europe to Asia along the Trans-Siberian railway, still accessible.
A place to visit, if you're interested, is the Boris Yeltsin museum centre, showcasing objects, videos and installations dedicated to the political history of contemporary Russia and to its first President.
A breathtaking sight can be enjoyed on the Vysotsky Tower, a 188 metres tall skyscraper with 54 floors, a real panoramic view of the city.
Another yet more modern place to visit is the Cathedral of the Blood, a Russian orthodox church built where the Emperor Nicholas II of Russia, his family and some of his servants were killed after the Russian Revolution.
