Chelyabinsk Region

The 2012 European Water Polo Championship is taking place in the capital of the large Russian region, which is the natural border between Europe and Asia. It is a meeting place of the West and the East. A notional boundary between these two parts of the world has determined the history of the region’s development and its fusion of contrasts.

On one hand, the Chelyabinsk region, or the South Urals is one of the largest industrial regions of Russia. For instance, the most famous Russian metallurgical plants are located here. On the other hand, scenic landscapes, lakes, forests, healing springs and the unique climate of the region attract many Russian people to the Chelyabinsk region for rest and rehabilitation. Here are located the biggest national parks, Zyuratkul and Taganai with their rich eco-systems. Moreover this is a region of lakes: there are more than three thousand pure water reservoirs and every year tourists visit the mountains for rafting. Also people from all over the country come to the local health resorts as Uvildy and Kisigach are health resorts which are well-known far beyond the Urals.

Another particular feature that highlights the region is its mountain skiing facilities. This relatively new outdoor activity is currently increasing in popularity in the South Urals. There are several big mountain ski centers that are always full of those keen on speed and snow. Thus, Chelyabinsk citizens have a wide range of opportunities for rest and recreation without going aboard or to the south of Russia.
