Alpine skiing complex Zmeinogorsky

It's time to conquer another slope of the Altai Mountains, you can go skiing, tubing, or, as many people used to call them, "lollipops", at least on a snowmobile. Be sure to check the [official website](http://kkt-zmeinogorsk.ru/turizm/zimniy-otdykh-v-zmeinogorskom-rayone/gornolyzhnyy-komleks-zmeinogorskiy/) of the ski resort for more information on booking the equipment you need. Please note that the ski area is closed on Monday. The cafe, where you can have a hearty hot meal and take food with you on the road, is right at the foot of the slope, you can park your car there too.

History Museums


Before you go back, you should get some rest and take a breath. I recommend visiting a very interesting museum, located in the heart of Zmeinogorsk. For example, did you know that this city was considered one of the strongest industrial centers of the Russian Empire? Today in the museum you can see the artefacts found as a result of archaeological excavations, a collection of minerals, and, most interesting - ancient machinery and machines that used to be involved in mining. The museum is closed on Mondays, the last Friday of the month is a sanitary day.
