Info: Ekaterinburg (also known as Yekaterinburg) is the third largest Russian city, administrative centre of the Sverdlovsk region and the capital of the Urals. Sverdlovsk oblast is one of the most developed and advanced regions in Russia. It is very rich in minerals and raw materials - the main industries are heavy machinery and metallurgy. It is situated far from areas of ethnic conflict and is politically stable.
Ekaterinburg can easily be found on a geographical map of the vast Euro-Asian Continent: it is in the middle of the Ural mountains, which separate Europe and Asia. The Europe-Asia Obelisk which is about 25 miles (40kms) west of the city, marking the border between the two continents, is an especially interesting place to visit. Thus, Ekaterinburg lies at the crossroad of 2 continents and this determines its political, economic and cultural peculiarities.
Ekaterinburg is the capital of the Ural Federal District, which covers an area of about 2 million sq. km. The territory possesses the main oil and gas fields of Russia, and the richest deposits of iron and polymetallic ores. The world largest metallurgical enterprises are located in the Urals, concentrating here due to the great industrial and intellectual potential. The Sverdlovsk region (and Ekaterinburg as its main city) exports raw materials and heavy machinery and imports foodstuff, consumer goods and machines. Business and investment climate is believed to be favorable.


Climate: The fact that Ekaterinburg is far away from the Atlantic Ocean and close to Siberia makes the climate here continental. Compared to the western part of European Russia, which is situated on the same latitudes, we have a longer and colder winter, the temperature difference between days and nights is bigger and the humidity is lower. The climate is mostly affected by the "Western wave" - atlantic air on its way to the Urals becomes continental - it loses it's humidity and becomes colder in winter or warmer in summer. Nevertheless air currents from the west bring most part of atmospheric precipitation and western cyclones often change the weather in Ekaterinburg region. The Ural Mountains also have a big impact on the weather of the region. The mountains are stretched out across the path of the western waves. The mountains, which are not very high, don't make an obstacle for the waves but significantly slow them down, helping the air to move in northerly or southerly directions.

Ekaterinburg has long cold winters with January being the coldest month with temperatures averaging -16C/-17C but it can, on rare occasions, drop to minus 40C. The first snow-falls are in the beginning of October, and the city is usually covered by early November. The heavy snows take until April to thaw. July is the warmest month with average temperatures around 20C - but temperatures of 38C have been recorded. Swimming in the lakes and rivers of the southern and middle Ural is possible from June till August.

Summer ends in late August when the first frosts come to the Urals, however, an "Indian Summer" which is experienced in mid September is quite comfortable.
