Monument at the Border between Europe and Asia

Travel Ekaterinburg Monument at the Border between Europe and Asia General Information
We are pleased to intrigue you with undeniably the most controversial and symbolic geographical mark of Russia. Its story goes back to the beginning of the XVII century when V. Tatischev, the first titled Russian historian, geographer and the founder of Ekaterinburg, gave the name "Ural" to this "most eminent", according to his opinion, range of mountains and proved it to be a "natural watershed" between Europe and Asia. So this tradition has been kept in the XIX century when the first monument perpetuating the border between Europe and Asia was opened in 1837 for the visit of crown prince Alexander, future emperor Alexander II, at the highest point of Siberian highway. You can still look admiringly at this old sign and the newer one built in Soviet times, despite the recent statement of geographers that have moved the border further east having left the Ural Mountains in Europe.
