Back in the USSR, 3 hours

The city of Ekaterinburg, which in Soviet times was known as Sverdlovsk, played a key role in the history of Russia in the twentieth century. The Revolution and Civil War started here with the bloody murder of last Russian Tsar Nickolay Romanov and his family in 1918. Stalin's struggle against the "class enemies" in the 1930's turned the city into the largest transshipment point for prisoners of the GULAG (system of exploitation of the workforce) who were sent to work on the development of the vast lands of Siberia. In the tragic years of World War II, it was here, in the hundreds of factories which had been relocated from all over Russia, that the famous Russian military weaponry was being produced. It is also in Ekaterinburg between the 1940's and 50's, that the greatest Russian military leader of World War II, Marshal Georgy Zhoukov, spent the years of his "exile". On 1st of May 1960 the city attracted the attention of the world again, Garry Powers, the pilot of an American spy plane, U-2 was shot down a few km. from the city.
Finally, at the beginning of the 1990's Ekaterinburg's most famous politician, Boris Yeltsin, became the first president, he played a key role in dismantling the Party structure and opening up the Soviet myth. The city had been closed to foreign visitors, due to military secrecy, until 1991.

Excursion «Brothers in Arms»

(Military history of Ekaterinburg & the biggest private collection of Russian Arms)

The Soviet Union was the superpower rival to the United States. The Cold War between the two nations led to military buildups, the nuclear arms race, and the Space Race.
Soviet leaders since the late 1920s have emphasized military production over investment in the civilian economy. The high priority given to military production has traditionally enabled military-industrial enterprises to commandeer the best managers, labor, and materials from civilian plants. As a result, the Soviet Union has produced some of the world's most advanced armaments. Ekaterinburg (named as Sverdlovsk since 1924 till 1991) played the most important role in the Soviet military-industrial complex and was closed for foreigners till 1991.

During the tour you will see the most interesting sites of the local military history (The Soviet Army Square, The Black Tulip Memorial, The Headquarters of The Ural Military District) and then will make a trip to small town V.Pyshma for excursion in brand new Museum of Arms of UMMC (the biggest in Russia private collection of arms, military vehicles, aircrafts, helicopters and soviet cars).

Duration of the tour: 4 hours (1,5 hours walk in Ekaterinburg + 2,5 hours car trip to the exhibition of Arms in V. Pyshma, 25 km. from the downtown)
