Magnitogorsk on the map of Russia

Magnitogorsk is the second largest city in the Chelyabinsk Region, located at the foot of Magnitnaya Mountain. Many tourists have the wrong stereotype about the city of metallurgists as a dirty, depressed industrial city, but this is not true. In fact, the city itself is clean and interesting in terms of attractions, and the natural beauty of its surroundings attracts travelers from all over Russia and the countries of the Near and Far Abroad.

Architectural landmarks and monuments

Temple of the Ascension

This majestic church, built in 1989, is a whole temple complex in which the traditions of ancient Russian architecture and modern elements are skillfully combined. The beginning of the construction of the temple fell on economically difficult times - 1989, so the construction had to be postponed for 10 years. Thanks to the financial support of the Magnitogorsk Iron and Steel Works and about 300 other organizations, as well as a large number of individuals, active construction of the church began, and in early 2003 the central chapel was consecrated and the first service was held. A year and a half later, on the 75th anniversary of Magnitogorsk, the temple was solemnly consecrated, and since then it has been the main architectural landmark and the center of the spiritual life of Magnitogorsk.

In the interior of the church, the iconostasis, 15 meters high and 25 meters wide, is most striking in its beauty and scale. There are 108 icons in total, made by the best masters of the Trinity-Sergius Lavra. Here you can also admire the picturesque mosaic frescoes.

On the territory of the temple complex there is also a house of mercy with a chapel, a refectory, a first-aid post and a home church where the needy are received. Also here you can see a beautiful 7-meter monument to St. Simeon of Verkhoturye, a separate church where water baptism takes place, and a bell tower. The territory is very well equipped, decorated with many flowers, there is a playground and parking for cars.

In Magnitogorsk, you will also encounter such architectural monuments and sculptural compositions:

We also recommend admiring the light and music fountain near the city administration.

Parks and natural attractions

Ecological Park in Magnitogorsk

The Ecological Park is a favorite place of recreation for residents of Magnitogorsk, where you can relax among the spreading trees and breathe in the fresh air. This natural oasis, equipped for recreation of townspeople and tourists in the middle of the 20th century, is attractive at any time of the year. In summer there is a great place for jogging, horizontal bars and other athletic equipment are equipped, there is a football and basketball field. Along the alleys, townspeople ride bicycles, skateboards, roller skates and skis. A playground and a fairy-tale meadow with wooden figures of famous fairy-tale heroes were made for children. In the warm season, residents of Magnitogorsk arrange picnics in the park. In the evening, bright lights turn on and music plays.

And in winter, the city authorities flood ice rinks in Ecopark: on one of them there are hockey battles, and on the other the townspeople go ice skating. High snow slides are built for children, and adults are skiing.

Those who prefer a more relaxing holiday can simply walk in the park or sit on a bench with a newspaper or book. More than 30 species of trees and shrubs have been planted here, among which you can not only wander, distracted from everyday life, but also collect medicinal herbs, of which there are about 25 varieties in Ecopark. You will also be pleased to sit by artificial reservoirs or take a walk in the Rock Garden.

A little about Magnitogorsk

Magnitogorsk on the map of Russia is geographically located on the slopes of the Southern Urals, near Magnitnaya Gora, and is part of the Chelyabinsk Region. The city is divided into 2 parts by the Ural River.

Large industrial enterprises are located on the left bank (in Asia), the right bank (Europe) is built up with residential areas. The urban population is more than 418 thousand people, most of whom are Russians (over 80%).

The climate of Magnitogorsk is significantly influenced by the Ural Mountains, which block the flow of warm Atlantic air masses. Because of this, the city is under the influence of cold arctic air currents. The harsh continental climate is characterized by cold winters with little rainfall and severe frosts, and hot dry summers.

Due to the harsh winter, the peak of tourist activity occurs in the warmest and driest months - from May to July inclusive.
