Perm the Great
Perm Krai Tourism Development Center
Europe and Asia meet in the Perm Territory. Between them is a natural border - the ancient Ural Mountains. Having lost their former greatness, they have preserved their stunning beauty. The forest or parma, as the indigenous residents of Permian Komi call it, a source of strength and inspiration, covers more than 70% of the territory of the region. There are about 30,000 rivers in the Perm region. Most of the region is in the basin of the Kama River, one of the largest and most navigable in Russia. This is why active tourism is especially popular in the Perm Territory, which does not depend on the season: summer rafting on numerous rivers is replaced in winter by recreation at ski resorts and resorts. And the beauty of natural sights: the Kungur ice cave, the Stone City, Vishersky reserve and other places will be remembered by any tourist who has been here.
The cultural history of the region combines the pagan Perm animal style and the famous collection of wooden religious sculptures, classical Perm ballet and modern art projects. All year round the guests of the region are welcomed by bright festivals: Diaghilev festival, festival of aeronautics "Sky Fair", ethno-landscape festival "Call of Parma" and many others.
Glorious merchant and industrial past, unique fusion of national cultures, interesting traditions of modern times - all this makes the region an attractive place for tourists who prefer to travel "with meaning".
