Travel Itinerary and Road Trip Route

Day 1: Journey to the Stone Age and an ice cave

On the first day you will plunge into the life of an ancient man in the entertainment and educational park "Archeos", walk along the Bazhovsky trail through a fabulous pine forest and climb into a real ice cave!


Gazpromneft filling station #25

So, guys, let's go, shall we? Just to avoid surprises on the way, refuel with quality fuel to the full, pump up the tires, fill the washbasin and get coffee with healthy snacks! Cool emotions from the trip!

Тальков камень

In the nature park ["Bazhovsky places"]( ecological paths around picturesque rocks and lakes were created, which inspired the Ural writer to create tales. All routes are marked, for a walk with children I recommend the Bazovsky trail.

Cafe "Dobrynia"

For lunch I suggest staying in a good roadside cafe at the entrance to the Chelyabinsk region.

Palaeopark "Archeos"

I suggest going on a time travel with children, right in the Stone Age! In Palaeopark ["Archaeos"]( an ancient man's parking lot with unique ancient artifacts and exciting interactive tours has been restored. For acquaintance with Ancient Ural Mountains the program "The Stone Age" will excellently suit. It includes a two-hour interactive tour in authentic costumes and a hot lunch with a Paleolithic era dish. It is better to order the tour [in advance](

Sugomak Cave

Mount Sugomak and the Sugomak Cave are some of the most famous, popular and easily accessible attractions in the northern part of the Chelyabinsk Region. There are stunning views from Mount Sugomak, and the cave is unusual because it was formed in marble rocks. Paths to the top are well trampled even in winter, the climb will not be difficult for children. Beautiful snow crystals are formed in the cave in winter and ice stalagmites are formed on the floor.

Cafe "Friday"

Have dinner at a cozy cafe Friday in the centre of Kyshtym, and if your strength remains, take a walk around Upper Kyshtym Pond.

Day 2: Urals Disneyland and a tour of an arms factory

On the second day you will find yourself in a fairy tale with stone castles, knights and dragons, take a pirate ship on board and create your own decoration with the famous "Zlatoust engraving".


Lake Turgoyak has no less than a dozen recreation centers, providing everything for active recreation with children. I suggest you come to the winter [amusement park]( at Golden Beach Hotel and rent quad bikes or tubing rides.

Gunsmith Factory

An old factory producing bladed weapons conducts interactive excursions for schoolchildren. Children will learn the history of Zlatoust, learn about production, change into knights, attend master classes and learn to throw knives. Advance booking for the excursion is required at [site](

Treasure Island Café

For lunch I suggest stopping by the first family cafe in Zlatoust "Treasure Island" with children's menu, funny interior and animation for young guests.

Сонькина Лагуна

Entertainment complex "Sonia Lagoon" - an ideal place for leisure with children! Medieval castles, pirate ships, attractions for all ages and all seasons and a real island with a zoo.

PIZZA HOUSE, family cafe

Dine in a cozy family pizzeria with a variety of children's menus.

Day 3: Park of historical reconstruction and dog sledding

Today you will again have a fascinating journey into the past, this time to ancient Russia, as well as a ride in sledding with cute fluffy husky and a walk through the picturesque marble career.

Gazpromneft filling station #287

Isn't it time for gas? Drive to Gazprom Neft filling stations to refill the tank, install a mobile application and pay for fuel from the comfort of your car. [App Store]( [Google Play](

Husky and Miass Equestrian Center

Gardarica Historical Reconstruction Park

Plunge into the history of the Russian Empire of the 18th century or the era of Ancient Russia in the historical park "Gardarica"! Antique household items, reconstruction of military battles, fascinating master classes, archery, historically authentic games and cuisine. It is better to make an appointment for the tour in advance, all the programs are available at [site](

Cruise Café

Lunch at the roadside Cruise Café. There is a large selection of dishes, pleasant interior, good service and an aquarium with fish and jellyfish, which will definitely like kids!

Balandinsky marble quarry

In the village of Bolshoe Balandino there are three picturesque marble quarries. Mining stopped only in the 90s, over time the quarries were filled with water and turned into a popular place for recreation. You can also find old lime kilns behind the quarries. Stroll along the picturesque Miass River with its rocky cliffs and real canyons with hardened lava.

Cafe "Dobrynia"

For dinner, I suggest stopping by the roadside cafe "Dobrynia". Big portions, reasonable prices and fresh pastries.

Gazpromneft filling station #17

Ahead of the Gazpromneft filling station. A good excuse to make a stop: refuel with quality fuel, buy water and just warm up.
