The most popular of them we included in our rating.

Peter and Paul Cathedral

Attraction rating (Perm): 5.0

The appearance of the city of Perm is due to the construction of a copper smelter. Prior to this, there were dense thickets and impenetrable forests on the territory. In the first village, where factory workers lived with their families, a need arose for a temple. Therefore, in 1724, under Catherine I, the then still wooden church was laid, named in honor of Peter and Paul. And only decades later, by decree of Peter I, in 1764 a stone, multi-tiered five-domed cathedral in the style of provincial baroque was rebuilt.

In the 90s. of the last century in the Cathedral they tried to organize a gym, a club of railway workers, restorers. However, in 1990 the temple was again elevated to the rank of Christian shrine. Today, the cathedral is an architectural monument of federal significance; services, weddings and funeral services are held here again. The interior inside is more like a small museum. And even despite the fact that it is not very convenient to get to the temple on foot, it is a very popular place among the townspeople and tourists, so our experts gave it the first place in the popular rating.

We can safely say that the temple is the visiting card of the city, for which we placed it at the second level of our rating. Today, the building combines Byzantine and Old Russian styles at the same time. Inside the temple is decorated simply and at the same time solemnly.

Attraction rating (Perm): 4.8

Not far from Suksun in the Perm region, there is an amazing Plakun waterfall, to which crowds of tourists flock, because waterfalls are an atypical phenomenon for the Ural nature. In our ranking, he takes third place. According to studies, the source forming the waterfall emerges from groundwater flowing from many cracks in the sandstone. And it originates 15 meters from the waterfall, then breaking into 2 sleeves. The small sleeve has a height of 2 m, the large one - 7 m. At the same time, the water in the waterfall is very cold, but some tourists still bathe, because there is a belief that promises health and replenishment of life for someone who plunges into the waterfall 3 times. Believers also honor Plakun Falls, calling it the Holy Ilyinsky Spring. On July 10, Religious Procession heads for him in honor of the Burning Cupid holiday.

The waterfall got its name, as the legend tells, because of a girl who was separated from her beloved and walled up in a rock. Falling to the ground, a lot of small splashes come out of the waterfall, very similar to tears. Therefore, they call Plakun waterfall. Local water was studied many times by scientists, checking the quality and composition of water, and came to the conclusion that the water here is clean, has many useful trace elements, and is well stored. Today, the waterfall is a monument of regional importance and a local attraction.

Stone city

Attraction rating (Perm): 4.6

Stone Town is a nature reserve, a bizarre cluster of rocks, which also have another name - Devil's Hillfort. A unique natural monument, located 526 m above sea level, in our ranking of attractions falls on the fifth step. However, this place gained popularity not so long ago, about 20 years ago. Today excursions take place here, and for free.

The stone city got its name due to its special structure - it looks like a real city with frozen old streets and alleys. Locals claim that the stone city is the bottom of an ancient river. In those days, a deep sea spilled near the Ural Mountains and a river flowing into this sea flowed along the remnants of the Stone Town, whose age is estimated at 300 million years!

Some visitors to the stone reserve complain about the lack of amenities, the lack of toilets and places for collecting garbage, while others, on the contrary, are attracted by the wild, untouched nature: tourists come to the stone city with tents and live here for weeks or even months.

Orda cave

Attraction rating (Perm): 4.3

The longest gypsum cave in Russia, located in the shadow of the Ural Mountains.

But there are also dry areas that a land tourist can visit. Our experts marked the Orda cave the eighth in the rating of Perm attractions.

The cave has very beautiful grottoes and fanciful natural panoramas, but, nevertheless, gypsum caves are characterized by a collapse, especially in spring. And the water in the flooded part can reach -20 degrees Celsius. However, the cave has not yet been fully explored, so there is the opportunity to get to a place where no one else has been.
