Introduction
 

The ancient ridge of the Ural Mountains stretching for two thousand kilometers presents a natural boundary between Europe and Asia, at the same time, a link, a steel seam, tying up the two parts of the world in a single grand Continent of Eurasia. The Ural Mountains, which are also called the Stone Belt, extend for2500 km from hot Kazakh Steppes to the frozen coast of the Arctic Ocean.

The Urals are the core of Russia, its spinal column, the support. Those who discover the Urals will discover Russia. The Urals are the cross-roads. They are of universal character, because they combine the past and the future, power and lyrics, mountains and steppes, techniques and culture, inhabited and deserted places. There are so many interesting places in the Urals and its capital – Yekaterinburg.
