Perm

The train crosses the bridge over  Kama River and arrives in the industrial city of Perm, situated at the foot of the Ural Mountains, also called the “gateway to Siberia”. Perm was earlier a closed city because of its arms industry. Today it is open, also for foreigners. The sights however are just a few: an art gallery with a large icon collection and a collection of carved wooden figures, a concert hall and the Academic Theatre of Opera and Ballet, as well as an 18th-century cathedral. The city however is a perfect starting point for hiking and rafting adventures in Ural Mountains.
