Demidov inclined tower

This route is developed for everyone who is interested in the history of one of the richest regions in the world and for the guests of the Urals.

The tour presents you with an old town, so-called town-plant, Nevyansk, situated 86 km from Yekaterinburg. You'll learn the history of the mining and metallurgical industry in the Urals, a famous dynasty of merchants of 18th century - the Demidovs, known from 17th century and connecting Yekaterinburg with provincial towns and other commercial centres like Perm and Tchelyabinsk.

You'll have a visit to the Museum of Local Lore and an unique monument of the past - the Inclined Stone Tower. It will be really exciting to see "the acoustic room", the mechanism of the Nevyansk clock and the steeple.
