Basic romantic route

Swings, freshly picked up tangerines, dances, and wine for a great price. That perfect weekend for two in Ekaterinburg.
This is a route to have a nice time together without being bored and fall in love with each other again.

There will be no benches of making peace or bride's lanes, bridges, and other similar "must visits". Instead, we will share with you interesting viewing points and modern museums, help to find the best swings for two and choose a restaurant, and, well, a few places to dance.

If you don't have a partner yet, but want one, go to the Wall of Wishes in the small park at 58, Sakko and Vancetti street. Sounds tacky, but looks trendy. Just approach the wall, put your hand to the imprint and make a wish to meet your beloved one.
What you will get for free with the Guest card: museums, several secret places, and must visit spots.
Great discounts up to 20%: Opera, coffeehouses, and restaurants.

    26/28 Grill
    26/28, Lenina
    After a nice walk it's time to have a good meal! Let's go to the legendary restaurant without an address — Grill 26/28. Actually, it's very simple — it is located on the Lenina avenue between buildings 26 and 28. Juicy burgers and wine for reasonable prices for you.

    The Dam
    And then — walking again! In winter it's just beautiful and spacious, and in summer you can have an impromptu picnic. Take a seat on the grass, it is allowed. But it's better to have some covers with you or at least to sit on a sweater. Alcohol is, of course, prohibited, but who needs it, right?

    And right next to the descent you will see a big red-brown stone all covered in white writings. It is said that it makes wishes come true. Even if you don't believe it, you can at least have some fun reading the writings of others and thinking of what you would write for yourself.
    Dendrological park and greenhouses
    37a, 8 Marta street
    Pass the fountain, cross the Malysheva street and you are close to the Dendrological park. It is another miracle in the centre of the city. There are always a lot of squirrels and ducks who like to be fed. Both are ready to jump into your hands.

    But that's not all. The main treasure of the park is the local Winter Garden. Great orangeries, aromas, and a wild banana or a local tangerine as a present.
    Donna Olivia
    41, 8 Marta street
    Close to the exit from the park there is a cozy restaurant, that will not only be perfect for couples, but will make everyone around these delicious dishes fall in love.

    We recommend trying thin-crust pizza, especially with Parma ham. For starters get a light salad with rolls and zucchini or a vegetable salad with salmon. For a main dish — pork loin or salmon steak.

    As for pasta, you should just try them all. Vegetarians should go with Gnocchi Quattro Formaggio, and for those who love meat Tagliatelle with Veal will be a perfect choice.

    Art Museum of Ernst Neizvestny
    14, Dobrolyubova street
    Ernst Neizvestny was born in Ekaterinburg, and this museum is the only one in Russia that has more than 100 of his original works.

    Neizvestny used to say: "Vertical is God. Horizontal is Life. At the intersection I stand with Michelangelo, Shakespeare, and Kafka".

    His works Orpheus, Atomic Explosion, Heart of Christ, Abduction of Europe, Dancer, Centauress with a Child, etc. are on display here.

    Free
    From Radishcheva street to Vainera street. Here someone will definitely play the drums or the flute, and maybe you will even see a real concert.

    It's a beautiful street with fountains, bronze statues, and interesting architecture.
    Gastroli
    4, 8 Marta street
    Walking and hugging each other, we go to the Lenina avenue, pass the monument and go straight to Gastroli.

    What to order: Legendary eggplants "Shalom, Shanghai!", goat cheese, chestnut soup, a lot of beef, mutton, rabbit, different fowls, fish. Or try to choose between pasta, pizza, burgers, and sweet pies.


    10% discount
    Dancing!
    The great thing about Gastroli is that 5 m from it there is a bar and dancefloor at Shalom, Shanghai!

    Amazing gin, cocktails with violet liqueur, all the classics and even multi-layered stories to go along with your mood. And all of this for quite reasonable money.

    Do you like dancing? It's cool here! Want to be alone and enjoy a hookah? Everything's possible.
    Mamma's Big House
    26, Lenina avenue
    For most romantic couples we prepared something up our sleeve. It's perfect for having a snack in a quiet place before going to bed.

    24/7 restaurant that will always welcome you as a favourite guest.

    Or zucchini flippers with tomato salsa, pancakes or bagels with meat and vegetables.

    If all you need is coffee, you are in the right place. Have a great night!

    Как появился Ельцин Центр
    В 2008 году для одного из старинных, «одноэтажных» кварталов Екатеринбурга, что в районе улиц Челюскинцев – 9 января – Маршала Жукова, началась новая жизнь. Именно тогда был заложен первый камень пятидесятиэтажной башни «Исеть» – первого здания нового делового квартала «Екатеринбург-Сити».

    Согласно первоначальному плану, предполагалось возвести четыре высотные башни, бизнес-парк, торговую галерею, конференц-центр и гостиницу, причем основные объекты нового делового центра должны были появиться еще до саммита Шанхайской организации сотрудничества (лето 2009 года). К этому времени построили лишь здание пятизвездочно-го отеля «Хаятт» – на этой площадке президент Дмитрий Медведев провел все основные встречи саммита.

    В 2009 году прекратила свое существование улица 9 Января, переименованная в улицу Бориса Ельцина, а недостроенный конгресс-холл «Демидов-Плаза» был перестроен и приспособлен под нужды современ-ного музейного комплекса – «Ельцин-центр». В 2011 году у его подножия появился памятник первому Президенту России.
    Ekaterinburg for two
    Day 2
    For breakfast — go to Engels
    Route
    For breakfast — go to Engels → If you like drive — go to Uktus! → If you're super in love — go on a date to a pottery! → Madly in love-on a date in the pottery! → Panorama ASP restaurant → Yekaterinburg state academic Opera and ballet theatre → the Rosy Jane Pub
    For breakfast — go to Engels
    21/4, Malysheva street
    It has one of the best coffee in the city and the most famous waffles with ice cream. Good days start here.

    show 15% discount
    If you like drive — go to Uktus!
    It's better to take a taxi, it will cost you about 200 rubles. There are no bus stops near the complex, so you would have to walk for about 1 km along quite a poor road
    If you are active and adventurous, then go to Uktus. In winter rent a snowboard, skis or a snowmobile. In summer go for a walk or for a ride on a chairlift, fly in a wind tunnel, get entangled in rope adventure park. By the way, the biggest thermal pool in the Urals has been recently opened in Uktus. In a word, it's got everything for recharging and refreshing.
    If you're super in love — go on a date to a pottery!
    Shopping centre Europe (25, Lenina avenue, 15 minutes walking from the place you had breakfast at)

    Pottery No.1
    And if you need some time just for the two of you, go on a romantic workshop to the pottery in the centre of the city: make pretty (or not so pretty, but made with your own hands) things from clay, drink some wine and for one more time realize how much you love each other.
    Panorama ASP restaurant
    Business centre Vysotsky, 50th floor
    And now we are going to one of the most romantic restaurants with a city view.

    You should definitely book a table next to the panoramic window. What to order: Cream mushroom soup or tom yum kung, scallop salad or Far Eastern oysters, coconut parfait or creamy raspberry mousse. And a glass of wine.

    That's all, now you are ready for the opera.

    ТЮЗ
    Екатеринбургский ТЮЗ - один из старейших и известнейших профессиональных театров для детей и молодежи в России. Был основан в 1930 году.

    В формировании первичного состава труппы участвовал Московский театр для детей (в то время руководимый Натальей Сац).

    В разные годы театр возглавляли такие известные режиссеры, как Владимир Мотыль, Юрий Жигульский, Юрий Котов, Дмитрий Астрахан, Владимир Рубанов, Георгий Цхвирава, Семен Лосев, Анатолий Праудин, Вячеслав Кокорин. На сцене Екатеринбургского ТЮЗа обрели творческую зрелость многие впоследствии широко известные мастера сцены и экрана: Елена Юнгер, Олег Гущин, Борис Плотников, Галина Умпелева, Леонид Неведомский, Светлана Гайтан, Наталья Королева и др. Гордость театра - его актерская труппа, которая считается одной из лучших среди провинциальных российских театров. С

    Сегодня в труппе ТЮЗа - 40 профессиональных артистов, из них три народных артиста России, девять заслуженных артистов и талантливая театральная молодежь.
    Ресторан Donna Olivia
    Ул. 8 марта, 41

    После театра предлагаем отправиться в уютный ресторан запасаться силами на весь день.

    Взрослым рекомендуем любую пасту – она здесь одна из лучших в городе! Кстати, для вегетарианцев подойдут ньокки «Кватро Формаджи», а для любителей блюд с мясом – тальятелле с телятиной.

    Для детей, как полагается, супчики, каши, картошка фри, котлетки, пиццы, бургеры, салатики, блинчики и прочая красота с уменьшительно-ласкательными суффиксами.
    Дендрологический парк и оранжереи
    Ул. 8 марта, 37а

    Из ресторана можно выйти прямо в дендропарк с утками и общительными белками, которые чуть не прыгают на руки. В парке часто проводят съемки с лисами и совами – можно заодно посмотреть и на них.

    Но это еще не все! Главное сокровище парка – местный «Зимний сад» с тропическими цветами и дикими бананами. Посетителям на память дарят выращенные в оранжерее мандарины. Кстати, очень сладкие.
    Уралмаш
    15 июля 1928 года в нескольких километрах к северу от Пышминского тракта был заложен первый камень Уральского завода тяжелого машиностроения. Амбициозный Урало-Кузбасский проект, родившийся в годы первой сталинской пятилетки, предусматривал строительство сразу нескольких металлургических предприятий на Урале, работающих на кузнецком минеральном топливе, а ключевым пунктом как раз и должен был стать завод, способный производить новейшее металлургическое оборудование.

    Заводоуправление УЗТМ
    на Машиностроителей, 19а было построено в 30-е по канонам конструктивизма, хоть и из кирпича с деревянными перекрытиями, а не из железобетона. Пятиэтажные здание представляет собой сложную композицию из параллелепипедов с планом в виде буквы F. Главный фасад ассиметричный и состоит из трёх частей.

    Напротив, на бульваре Культуры, 1, стоит гостиница «Мадрид». Название народное, здание возводили во время волнений в Испании, и местные решили таким образом поддержать испанцев. Главный фасад имеет форму скошенного угла и выкрашен в кирпично-красный, который сохранился со времен постройки. Во второй половине 30-х годов фасад обновили элементами неоклассики элементами неоклассики: ордерными архитектурными деталями, пилястрами и прочими декорациями.

    В 10 минутах ходьбы на улице Красных партизан, 4 будет знаменитая школа № 22 1933 года. На фасаде до сих пор сохранились лепные книги. Три нижних книги имеют называются Маркс, Энгельс, Ленин. А четвертая, стоящая над ними, — КПСС. Предполагают, что раньше там было написано «Сталин».

    В паре шагов на Орджоникидзе, 12 стоит «Дом-пила», путь к которому вам покажет любой местный. Как пила он выглядит только сверху, но у дома очень необычная история. Раньше это была коммуналка, где жили наши инженеры вместе с немцами, приехавшими по контракту. Сейчас здесь квартиры, известные высокими потолками.

    А теперь идем смотреть «Белую башню», вокруг которой ходит много историй. Когда башня перестала выполнять свои функции, там даже хотели открыть кафе-мороженое. Сейчас за башней следит арх-группа Podelniki, водит по ней экскурсии, организует фестивали и другие мероприятия. Строение практически стало символом не только района, но и города.

    Башня стоит на перекрестке улицы Донбасской и бульвара Культуры. Идти рекомендуем через переулок Дружбы по улице 40 лет Октября и дальше уже по бульвару.

    Музей-театр «Барабанный дом»
    Ул. Большакова, 71

    Магическое место, откуда все выходят с улыбкой и энергией. Здесь проводятся костюмированные экскурсии, играют на африканских барабанах, космических ильдрамах и перкуссии. Это музей, который песнями и танцами сближает людей.
    ТРЦ «Гринвич»
    В ресторане MIO (3 этаж)

    Контактный зоопарк, мини-парк бабочек, кино, аттракционы с VR, город профессий «ФэнтазиГрад», парк развлечений «Герои парк» и еще много всего такого, что может сделать ребенка счастливым.

    А на ужин – в ресторан MIO!
