Venue Information
Yekaterinburg is one of the largest and the most dynamic cities in Russia. It is the administrative capital of the
Sverdlovsk Oblast and the Ural Federal District and an important centre for industry, transport, finance, science and
culture.
Yekaterinburg was founded in 1723 and is situated in the middle of the Eurasian continent, on the border of
Europe and Asia, on the eastern slopes of the Ural Mountains on the Iset River.
The first general plan of Yekaterinburg suggests that the development of the city on the Iset was carried out
according to the best examples of fortification craft of Germany, the Netherlands and France. European character of
the city was reflected not only in its name (the German «burg» means «the City» in the Russian language), but also
in the layout.
Empress Catherine I gave the name to Yekaterinburg, and Empress Catherine II gave it the status of the city in
1781. During the reign of Catherine II the main road of the Russian Empire was built through a young city. To the
west of Yekaterinburg this road was called the Moscow highway, and to the east – the Great Siberian. Thus,
Yekaterinburg became the key city to vast and rich Siberia, «a window to Asia», just as St. Petersburg was Russia's
«window to Europe».
Rich historical heritage, unique monuments of architecture, history, culture and art as well as unique nature and
local flavor attract tourists from all around the world.
Yekaterinburg is the Urals' major educational centre. There are 43 higher educational establishments and 40
vocational schools with over 190 thousand students.
