Located near the border of Europe and Asia, Ekaterinburg is the fourth-largest city in Russia. Because of its location in the Ural Mountains, the city is a popular destination for people interested in cross-country skiing, downhill skiing, and exploring the nearby Deer Streams National Park. However, there are plenty of cultural monuments to admire as well, including a wooden monastery known as Ganina Yama, a monument at the border of Europe and Asia, and a series of wooden chapels dedicated to the members of the imperial Romanov family, who were brutally murdered by Bolshevik troops in 1918.
