On May 18th on the eve of the Night in the Museum event we'd like to invite you for a free mafia tour in English at Shirokorechenskoye cemetery.
Mafia tour is one of the most requested tours in Yekaterinburg among foreign tourists. During the tour you will hear the stories about those who dominated the society in the new country in Yeltsin’s times, and see impressive tombstones at the cemeteries elaborately designed with full-sized portraits of the people dressed according to the 1990s gangster fashion.
The tour will be interesting for expats and foreign guests in Yekaterinburg, for English learners and for those who don't know the history of Yekaterinburg of the 1990s.
Start: May 18th (Saturday) at 16.00
Meeting place: Moskovsky Trakt 7th km, 2. Shirokorechenskoye kladbische (cemetery) in front of the Memorial to the Great Patriotic War with eternal flame - next to the main entrance and the church.
