Сочинение на английском: Город Екатеринбург (Yekaterinburg)
One of the largest, densely-populated and most interesting cities in Russia is Yekaterinburg. I’m lucky to have visited it myself as my uncle, who is my mother’s sibling, lives there. I should say I liked this city very much for its historic and architectural sights. All major attractions can be found in the central part. Perhaps, the best place for walks is the pedestrian zone known as Weiner Street. This street is full of stores, cafes, souvenir boutiques, outstanding monuments and spacious benches placed along the promenade. If you walk towards the 1905 Square you’ll reach Lenin Avenue. The same route leads to Plotinka on the bank of River Iset. The most picturesque and illuminated view here opens in the evening. My uncle says that one of the main pilgrimage routes runs here. The believers and many ordinary tourists visit the main cathedral of the city called Troitsky. Another popular religious destination is called Ganya’s Pit. If you want to enjoy the city view from the heights you should visit the 52nd floor of Vysotsky Center. I should mention that Yekaterinburg is perhaps one of the best cities for children, as it features a large zoo, waterpark, lots of carousels, outdoor exhibitions, theater performances, etc. Most of all I liked the park with gigantic Ferris wheel. Those interested in history would be surprised to know that this attractive city was named after Peter the Great’s wife - Catherine I.
