It may not be as well known as Pisa, but Nevyansk also has a leaning tower, which is one of the most famous landmarks of the Urals. Both the city and the tower are associated with the Demidov dynasty of industrialists who founded ironworks here. In addition, Nevyansk is also home to a traditional style of icon-painting which was developed by Old-Believers who came to work in the city’s factories. Nevyansk is situated between Yekaterinburg and Nizhny Tagil and can be easily visited by express train from either city.
