Sightseeing in Russia: tours in Perm
Perm is an administrative center of Perm region (Permsky krai) in Russia. It is situated on the banks of the river Kama, at the foot of Ural Mountains.
When Perm was founded, it was intended to be an important city, situated on the main road between Moscow and Siberia.
Russian tsar Mikhail Alexandrovich was executed in the outskirts of Perm with his secretary Nicholas Johnson on June 12, 1918 on the orders of the Perm revolutionists. Their bodies were never recovered. A few weeks later Andronic Nikolsky, the Archbishop of Perm, was also murdered by the Bolsheviks.

It’ s one of the Russia’s biggest carst caves (length of the explored part over 5 km) and the only one in Russia equipped for visits of the unprepared tourists (concrete paths, electrical lamps). During thousands of years underground were dissolving the soft rocks - gypsum, limestone and anhydrite - and formed a system of spacious underground halls, filled with picturesque pieces of rocks. Many stones resemble shapes of animals so precisely, that one hardly believe in their natural origin. Numerous ice columns make the cave extremely beautiful, as well as shining ice crystals, which cover the walls and the ceilings of several grottos. Some of the grottos hide underground lakes.

"Perm-36" Museum is devoted to promoting democratic values and civil consciousness in the contemporary Russian society through the preservation of the last Soviet political camp as a vivid reminder of repression and an important historical monument.
