Yekaterinburg and the Sverdlovsk region rarely make it on the list of the most sought after routes. Nevertheless, the region, according to the National News Service (NSN), has become a leader in domestic tourism development in the past year. The flight to here from Moscow only takes two hours. New points of tourist attraction have appeared in the region (the Yeltsin Centre alone is worth a lot) and historical sites are being restored. Lenta.ru presents the region as part of the continuing series of materials dedicated to the most interesting tourist destinations of the Russian provinces.
