Chelyabinsk Things to Do

  • Temporary Sculptures

    All up and down Arbat Street in February, you can see ice sculptures of birds, angels, people, or as you can see here, funny little kids.

  • Take a Walk

    Stroll down Arbat Street, lined with trees, lamps of cast iron and lots of benches make the street cosy and comfortable. There are clothing shops, bookstores, a photo gallery, and jewelry shops. There's even an Irish Pub! (I didn't go inside, so I don't know the story there...)

  • Statue

    This is dedicated to a young boy "Orlyonok" who fought in the Red Army during the Civil War of 1920s and died as a hero.

    Chaque année je viens à cette ville. J’ai beaucoup d’amis parmi les gens d’ici. Je vais même me marier à un gars sévère de Tcheliabinsk ! « Piany Straus » est un lieu spécial pour moi et mon futur époux car c’est là où nous avons fait la connaissance...)Il était si romantique !!

  • Gute Bedienung

    Es geschah dass ich auf Dienstreise in Tscheljabinsk war. Mein Kollege lud mich ein in „Pjany Straus“ zu essen. Schöne russische Mädchen gaben mir einen herzlichen Empfang und viel Schmackhaftes zu essen... Ich musste nicht lange warten!

  • Great Tea Menu

    This is a modern cafe on Arbat Street. There are round tables surrounded by cozy easy chairs. The tea menu is amazing, and it comes in a tea press. I tried the Keemun and also the Assam tea, which were both excellent.You can see from the photo that they even have the Statue of Liberty there. It's a bit silly, but fun. Let's build bridges and enjoy...

    No. 82 Marshrutka runs. It costs 25 rubles per passenger and baggage. Not familiar with foreigners. Also there is No.1 bus, but it has very few operation in a day, is not useful. Price of taxi would be 800 rubles.

    If you want to catch a Marshrutka (especially in the city), you have to raise your hand to show a signal to get on it, otherwise it could pass over a bus stop!

Chelyabinsk Warnings and Dangers

  • Cottonwoods in June

    If you have allergies be aware in June the ZILLIONS of cottonwood trees are shedding their "fluff". (In the picture, notice the cottonwood tree - the white is NOT flowers - and the piles of "fluff" drift on the ground.)

  • Pollution

    This is a major industrial city and the smog is TERRIBLE. I would definitely warn those who have breathing problems to not come to Chelyabinsk.

Chelyabinsk Off The Beaten Path

  • Lake Chebarkul

    On February 15, 2013, the sky directly over Chelyabinsk, Russia witnessed a fireball streaming across the sky with multiple cloud trails as fragments broke loose. That itself was a sight, but the main effect was sonic blasts from the exploding pieces that broke thousands of windows. Flying glass sent more than 1500 people to area hospitals. No one...

  • A taste of the old Soviet style

    Everyone attending Eurofest 2002 stayed in a circa 1950 Soviet camp. It was an experience I enjoyed and will never forget. A step back in time to a foreign environment I never thought I would experience.

  • Don't Forget Insurance

    If your current health insurance doesn't cover you while your abroad, you should consider getting international travel insurance just in case something should go wrong.
