A walking tour of the city is a great way to see the beautiful old architecture and the main attractions of historical importance such as the Church on the Blood, the site of the execution of the last Tsar. Yekaterinburg also hosts a number of unusual sights such as the QWERTY Monument, a giant stone keyboard, the so-called ‘Mafia Cemetery’ where former Mafia members are commemorated with life-size images carved into stone, and during the winter an entire city block made of ice. A visit to the Chinese Market with little outdoor stalls that sell almost everything is also a worthwhile experience. During the cold period there are many opportunities to go cross-country skiing and some downhill skiing as well. Day trips into the surrounding area, for example the Deer Stream National Park, are also an option and can be made by public transport.
