Verkhoturye - Religious Center Of The Urals And Siberia

You have a unique opportunity to visit one of the oldest cities on the eastern slope of the Urals (306 km north of Yekaterinburg), which occupies a special place in the history of the region and the country.

Verkhoturye rightly called the patriarch of the Urals. It arose at the end of the 16th century as a stronghold of Russian colonization of the Trans-Urals and Siberia, and at that time it acquired a significant state status and became known as the "GATES OF SIBERIA". The unique originality of the fate of this city is that Verkhoturye eventually turned from a transit and transport hub to the most important cultural and confessional center of the Russian state, which is to this day. And it happened thanks to the righteous Saint Simeon of Verkhoturye, to whose places we invite you to proceed.
Among the architectural ensembles of the ancient city you, of course, will conquer the magnificent Verkhotursky Kremlin - the only one on the Urals. The most remarkable structure on its territory is undoubtedly the Holy Trinity Cathedral, recognized by specialists as the best work of the Moscow Baroque in the Urals, and UNESCO's decision included among the most outstanding architectural monuments of the world.

Come to see the oldest city of the Ural region - 405 years of intensive administrative, commercial, political and cultural life. Listen to the story of Verkhoturye`s golden age that transformed a small village into "The Gates to Siberia", made it the only outpost of civilization in the wilderness of boundless Siberia and the biggest religious center with more then 40 churches and cathedrals. Breathe in the calmness and conciliation of holy monastery and nunnery, marvel at the Kremlin and the St. Trinity cathedral that was included into the UNESCO World Heritage List.(Tour lasts about 12 hours, tour price includes bilingual guide, two-way transfer, lunch).


It is impossible to understand Russians - development of nation and specific traits of Russian mentality, which are reflected in every phenomenon of Russian culture - without getting a deep inner view of the Orthodoxy. That is why we offer you to take a close look at Ekaterinburg churches and cathedrals that will help you find the key to many mysteries of Russia. (3-4 hours, bilingual guide).
