Full description
Learn about the key role Yekaterinburg played in the history of Russia in the 20th century and during the days of the USSR. Take part in a unique walking tour – designed like a quest game – to visit former spy sites and explore Soviet history.

Find former secret objects at special check points, take photos of them with your spy camera and guess a few riddles. Hear how Stalin's struggle against class enemies in the '30s turned Yekaterinburg into the largest transshipment point for prisoners of the Gulag sent to work in Siberia.

Learn how hundreds of factories were relocated to the city in World War II to produce the nation's arsenal of weapons. Discover why the military leader, Marshal Georgy Zhoukov, was sent into exile and how the city attracted attention when an American spy plane was shot down near the city center.

Explore how locally born Boris Yeltsin helped dismantle the structure of the Communist Party and opened up Soviet secrets.
