Ekaterinburg airport (SVX)

With a population of 1.4 million people, Yekaterinburg or Ekaterinburg is the fourth-largest city in Russia after MoscowSaint Petersburg, and Novosibirsk. It is located on the Asian side of the boundary between Europe and Asia, east of the Ural Mountains. Founded in 1723 by Peter the Great, it was named after his wife Yekaterina. During the Soviet era, the city was named Sverdlovsk after the Bolshevik leader Yakov Sverdlov. After the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991, the city returned to its former name.

Located 18km southeast of Ekaterinburg city centre, Koltsovo Airport (SVX) is the base of operations for Ural Airlines. In addition to domestic flights to the most important cities in Russia, there are international flights to cities like Barcelona, Vienna, Rome, Frankfurt, Prague, Istanbul or Tel Aviv, amongst others.

You can take a local metered taxi from Yekaterinburg airport to the city centre, although it doesn’t have a fixed price. If you prefer to know and control the cost of your airport taxi in advance, you can pre-book your Ekaterinburg airport transfer online.

What to see in Ekaterinburg

Yekaterinburg proves an interesting visit for those interested in the life and death of the last Tsar of Russia. Nicholas II and his family were kept prisoners and eventually executed in the area. The Church of the Blood was built in 2003 at the site of the execution. Ganina Yama is a group of wooden chapels dedicated to the Romanovs in the former woods where their bodies were found in 1979.  

Make some time to visit the beautiful university buildings, the Museum of Fine Arts and the Yeltsin Centre. If you are into quirky sights and unique photo ops, head to the QWERTY monument which could be described as a bunch of big keys made of white stone creating a huge keyboard on the grass by the river bank. 

If you are into winter sports, Yekaterinburg gives you the opportunity to do some cross-country or downhill skiing.
