A guided tour of the complete history of the Ural's heavy machinery industry. From groundbreaking and factory construction to the present, with an emphasis on the contribution of tank construction to the victory in the war. And it is free of charge.

Lake Uvildy

Reviewed By Shirwani - Lahore, Pakistan

We travelled Chelyabinsk due to this lake as an meteor site as well delaying Yekaterinburg from Moscow adding 100's of extra miles ... It was 5 mins drive in the dark woods beside the highway almost 50km prior to Chelyabinsk. We take a drive around the lake which was heavily fenced n thought of a private club n left, later find that it was the same meteor site we were looking for with broken windows...

Gagarin Park

Reviewed By David L

Peaceful park area in the centre of Chelyabinsk city. This is a nice place to go to forget that you're in the centre of a large city, with its traffic, pollution etc. You can walk around the green forested areas, chill out by the Fountain (or climb in, if it's hot), watch the wildlife (tame squirrels, birds) or visit the theme park. Stalls for food and drink around.

Chelyabinsk Museum of Regional Studies

Reviewed By London021 - London

Visited this Museum to try and get a sense of the history if the area. It has different sections on Modern HIstory (particularly the October Revolution and second world war and consequent rise of industry). However there are also really interesting Sections on the history of the confluence of different ethnic groups in the area, including clothing and social history. There were also exhibits about the natural history of the area including: geology, flora, animals, etc. Much of the information is also translated in English. Finally a section on stoneage history (though this was did not has translated curator notes).
I think we had also bought a ticket for the Gallery (not sure) at any rate we saw some art and also a number of photo Exhibitions of contemporary photography.

Monument of Beggar Man

Reviewed By Stefan M - Perth, Australia

One out of the many nicely looking Iron statues at Kirova street. The story a local told me (I couldn't confirm whether it's true) is that the local government was collecting money for the refurbishment of the newly created pedestrian area. A bank decided as one of the only shops not to donate any money, which is why the city government decided to put the iron beggar in front of their entrance. Certainly a funny idea.

Lovely place would please anybody. Fresh air, lots of adventurous things to do, and a variety of food to get. Bring your family, friends, or enjoy it it by yourself. We especially loved "Lesnoy extreme" (good for any age!)

Ice Arena Traktor

Reviewed By Stefan M - Perth, Australia

It's a sport arena, and not a sight by itself. However, you can expect high class facilities and reasonably friendly staff. Chelyabinsk in general is certainly a very developed city for sports events and the Traktor Arena certainly contributes to that.

This church is easy to find. And a must see! The architecture isn't as elaborate as other churches in Russia, but I thought it was worth seeing!
