THE LAST DAYS OF THE LAST EMPEROR.
6 days/5 nights
Disputes still rage about the last days of the life of the last Russian Emperor Nicholas II and his family. Why did this happen? Who exactly gave the order to destroy the tsar family, including children? Was it possible to save the Romanovs? During this tour we are also trying to answer these questions. In the tour programme we will see not only the Church on Blood, which was built on the place of the Ipatiev house where on the 17th of July in 1918 the whole Romanovs family was shot and visit Romanov’s museum but also go to see Ganya’s Pit (15 rm far from Ekaterinburg) where the bodies of royalty were thrown. A week later, the White Army drove the Bolsheviks from the area and launched an investigation into the fate of the royal family. Local authorities tried to hide their crime. After all, they killed not only the Emperor, they killed children! Therefore, the Bolsheviks reburied the tsar family. In 1998, the remains of the Romanovs family were reburied in the Peter and Paul Cathedral in St. Petersburg
NATIONAL PARKS & RESERVES OF URAL.

The Urals are rich in their reserves and unique natural parks, the beauty of the Ural Mountains. The most popular nature parks:
- Permsky park (driving approx.4 hours from Perm). Was founded in 2017. Here you can see the famous Usvinskie pillars. On the stones you can find imprints of ancient corals, brachiopods and other fossils, reminiscent of the fact that many millions of years ago the sea splashed here. Stone Town is also located here. It is a complex of huge stones in the Ural Mountains, located in such a way that it creates the impression of a city.
- Taganay Park (driving approx.3,5 hours from Chelyabinsk) is incredibly popular among guests of the Southern Urals. Lovers of a relaxing holiday will appreciate the hiking trails and photogenic nature, while extreme holiday enthusiasts will fall in love with the local ski slopes and rock climbing routes.
