The largest city in Russia’s Ural region, Yekaterinburg is among the most important cities in the country; a vibrant city, with an intriguing history to uncover. Built on the Romanov death site, the Church of All Saints is one of the main landmarks in the city, but there are many other significant museums and historic places to explore. As a stopover on the Trans-Siberian journey, you will likely stay in the city for a day or two. Staying outside the city centre means that you’ll get to enjoy a quiet neighbourhood, but if you prefer the bustle of downtown, there’s a handful of budget hotels there, too.
