TOURIST ROUTESOF THE URALSBespalova Liza,Kayavo Leta, form 8 “b” Aim of the project : To learn information about the most interesting and significant places of Ekaterinburg and popular tourist routes in the Urals
The Urals The ancient ridge of the Ural Mountains stretching for two thousand kilometres presents a natural boundary between Europe and Asia, at the same time, a link, a steel seam, tying up the two parts of the world in a single grand Continent of Eurasia. The Ural Mountains, which are also called the Stone Belt, extend for 2500 km from hot Kazakh Steppes to the frozen coast of the Arctic Ocean. The climate is extreme continental: winters are cold (minus 16-20°C in January), and summers are warm (plus 16-25 °C in July). There are years, though, when it rains in December and snows in June. The weather in the Urals is characteristic more of Asia, rather than of Europe. The town of Ivdel stands in the latitude of St Petersburg, but the weather in January there is two times colder than in the city on the Neva. The region's mountainous landscape is a factor that influences strongly its climate.
The widest part of the Urals comprisesdozens of parallel ridges. It is bounded in the North and the South by the valleysof Ufalei and Ural rivers and is called the South Urals. The highest mountains of the South Urals - Yamantau (1640 m) and Bolshoi Iremel (1582 m) - are located in the western row of the ridges. The Middle Urals presents the most lived-in-part of the Urals. The major transport routes connecting the European Russia and Siberia pass here. The legendary Chusovaya river - the only river in the Urals that crosses the mountain chains from the east to the west - runs its waters in the Middle Urals. The North Urals extends strictly in the meridional direction up to the latitudinal section of the valley of the Shchuger river. Telposiz (the "Nest of Winds") is the highest mountain (1617 m).
Investigation In the course of our research paper we had to find out what our schoolmates know about Ekaterinburg and the Urals, what places they have visited and how they get information about interesting places of our city and region. That’s why we questioned our schoolmates.

Listening Pupils from our school often go on hikes around the Urals: Deers’ Streems, Ganina Yama and many others. And one of our traditions is visiting Chyortovo Gorodishe. Every September we spend so-called “The Day of Health” there. This is an exciting adventure! I don’t know the other place which can give you so many positive emotions! It takes us about an hour to get to Chyortovo Gorodishe. It’s not too much for a “professional” tourist, but rather much for an ordinary student. But if you have many good friends, this trip won’t be so hard. When we reach our “aim” boys make a fire, girls cook “tasty food”, for example fried potatoes and sausages and of course hot tea. We also have different sport competitions there, which are very interesting, funny and sometimes rather difficult. After that we walk in the forest, sing songs, take pictures. Our teaches take part in different games. Everybody is happy! We always have a good time there!
