15 guided tours are waiting for the guests of the Congress

These days, the organizers are developing guided tours, specially adapted to the needs of persons with disabilities. The routes under development are the following: the historical Yekaterinburg, the religious city, the cultural city, the industrial city, the transportation city, the president city, the geological city, the mineralogical city, the fairy-tale city and even the space city. Additionally, the guests will be offered the Red Line route, i.e. the route that goes around the historical city center, the 1905 Square, the Quai of Working Youth, the Sevastianov house, the Church-on-the-Blood and other sights. Each place has been going through accessibility checks. For example, at the Museum of Nature of the Urals, a special call button will be set up, to help people on a wheelchair access the building.
