Yekaterinburg - A big, grey city in the Urals
"Big and Grey... Well, that's Russia!"
Yekaterinburg, like most other Russian cities, is big and grey.
I visited the impressive Chechenia Monument, dedicated to Russian soldiers who have died in conflicts there and elsewhere, And the fine Military museum, which showcases military artifacts from WWII and the cold war. It even has scrap metal from the downed american U2 spy plane (the highlight of my visit!)
