City Tour & Open-air Museum of Wooden Architecture (8 hours)

Discover the sights and uncover the history of the Ural region

By private transportation, you will start the round up tour at the Old Motovilikha district, where you will learn more about the city’s rapid development as the major industrial centre for the Ural region. Next, your friendly guide will lead you to the largest cemetery in the city, where you get to discover more of the region’s history. Head to the monument of the “Crying Mother” where you will hear more about the city’s military history, and see the inspiring commemoration to the ‘Defenders of the Fatherland”. 

Known as the gateway leading to Siberia, Sibirskaya Street, is the next stop on the itinerary. Stop at the grandeur hotel where the member of the Tsar's family, Mikhail Romanov, often resided. While tracing the final footsteps of the royal family, your tour guide will reveal much of the inexplicable mysteries surrounding the family’s tragic execution. Before leaving Sibirskaya Street, see the remarkable Tchaikovsky Opera and Ballet Theatre, and then continue to the grandeur mansion of the famous impresario Diagiliev. 

Your transfer will take you to Komsomolsky Prospekt to see the ‘Tower of Death’, a monument symbolising the struggles of the city during the Stalin era. As you make the journey passing through the astonishing Ural landscape, for a brief moment, your transfer will stop at the hydro-electricity dam which forms the Kama Reservoir, where you will get to observe the resplendent view of the Kama River as it stretches across the distance. 

The Museum sits at the top of a truly picturesque hill, on the banks of the majestic Kama River, and it is surrounded by spell-binding views of the Urals. Upon arrival, your tour guide will lead you to explore the settlement covering some of the museum’s historic monuments. Step back in time and experience village life in the 17th century as you explore the old wooden houses, dress in traditional costumes, and then you will immerse yourself in the culture and long standing traditions of the villagers who once lived there. 

While you are being transported through history, you have time to discover many of the museum’s original wooden structures; the Church of Transfiguration, the Church of Our Lady built in the late 16th century, the Bell Tower built in the late 17th century, as well as the salt work warehouse. While you are strolling ancient settlement, your guide will enthral you with the history of the museum, and then you have the chance to visit the museum’s café to sample the local cuisine. Hop aboard your transfer and then head back to the city, where your excursion ends when your guide accompanies you back to an agreed destination.
