Urals


The Ural is undoubtedly a very special region, it serves as the invisible border between Europe and Asia, between the western and eastern parts of enormous Russia. And this border is impressive indeed: the Ural Mountains stretch for more than 2,000 kilometers from north to south with a width of 40 to 150 km, and its highest point, which probably al lRussians remember from school lessons, Mount Narodnaya, rises to 1,895 meters. 
The natural diversity of the Urals is simply breath taking. There one can see landscapes of forests, steppes, tundra and even glaciers!
This region seems to be created specially for nature lovers and adventurers, because there are mountains and caves, rivers and lakes, forests and stone placers that beckon people to test what one is capable of.
