What to expect

Discover the architectural legacy of Yekaterinburg known as Chekist town on this half-day private tour and learn its history through its constructivist buildings with fascinating shapes.

Starting from meeting your local guide at your accommodation in Yekaterinburg, you'll travel to and hear about a site that was just a cemetery in 1848. Then, the area continued to transform in the 1920s to wooden buildings and progressed to a residential complex, built by order of the NKVD-OGPU to house the command staff (which is how it received the nickname of Chekist town).

Next, when you arrive, you'll see with your own eyes a large building of an unusual semicircular shape and an adjacent four-story building with a side cylinder, connected to a hotel by an elevated passageway. By the end of the day, you'll gain knowledge of the purpose of the designs, when the buildings were converted, which became important symbols, and about the house of culture named after F. E. Dzerzhinsky.
