The border of Europe and Asia (obelisk «Europe — Asia»)
The Urals is located on the border of two parts of the world — Europe and Asia. In the XVIII century, the founder of Ekaterinburg Tatishchev suggested that the ridge of the Ural Mountains is the border between Europe and Asia. Today, at one of the proposed places on the border between Europe and Asia, a granite pillar 30 meters high, crowned with a two-headed eagle, as it was, is installed. Each tourist must take a photo, standing with one foot in Europe and the other in Asia.
