Walk around an abandoned sanatorium by Lake Moltaevo.. Come to the village of Koptelovo.. Take a ride on the "pioneer" Alapaevska narrow gauge..

Journey to Alapaevskaya narrow-gauge

In two days we will visit the most interesting places in Alapaevsk and its surroundings. We will climb the Manturov stone, which is stunning in its size, look at the oldest building in the Sverdlovsk region, see the peasant's hut, which was built more than 300 years ago and has survived to this day in its original form, look at the oldest industrial monument of architecture in the region, and ride on a home-made railroad on a narrow gauge railway. I recommend to go on a trip on a weekday, as the narrow-gauge railway museum is not open at weekends.
