Celebrating the New Year in Ekaterinburg

28 December

 

When there are a few days left until the New Year, it means that all those, who puts organization of the holiday on the back burner in harness, are at the risk of celebrating the New Year    In front of the TV. This variant is preferred by many old-timers, who have been raised on Soviet traditions. And who could take a dig at advocates of celebrating the New Year in the family circle?!

But we are called by adventures! That is why below you can find some tips, how to celebrate the magic night in an active, unforgivable way, but without long preparation and heavy expenses.

Ice Town in Square of 1905

The first thing that comes to mind is Ice Town in the heart of Ekaterinburg in Square of 1905 The main Ural Christmas tree is devoted to city stories, commemorative dates, forthcoming grand events, embodied in ice sculptures. It is meant to remind citizens and visitors of Ekaterinburg of the forthcoming New Year and New-Year spirits. In different years the city history is on even board with the present, for example represented by sculptures of football players, participating in the forthcoming FIFA World Cup. Coasts and rides, lively music, illuminated show - all this will create bright and festival atmosphere. The only thing you should keep in mind is deep Ural freeze. That is why wrap up well to celebrate the New Year outdoors.

Mayakovsky Central Park

Every year a Christmas tree is installed in the territory of the Mayakovsky Central Park as well. There will be several festive sites and a huge ice rink with rental of skates at visitors’ disposal. Music, illumination, well-kept alleys, huge multi-media displays, disco, prize drawing, and - what is equally important - free entrance.

New-Year tram

Very non-typical option to celebrate the holiday, beloved by all Russians, was proposed by Eltrans travel bureau - you can celebrate the New Year's Eve, driving about in the streets of Ekaterinburg. New-Year Express will be decorated at your discretion. A DJ is ready to offer up entertainment for up to 30 persons and to arrange a crazy disco for you within wobbling sound. At the office of the travel bureau you can book a tram for three hours. A ride in a tram will cost about 30 thousand rubles for your company - it is a convenient amount for a large group of New-Year celebrants.

In blue woods out there

One acquaintance came up with an idea to arrange a celebration of the New Year... in a tent camp by a fire accompanied by touristic songs. In our opinion, it is too extreme. But those, who like to be in nature, can rent one of cottages in multiple recreational centres in the neighborhood of Ekaterinburg and dance around a fresh and real fir-tree. Such an option of celebration may become unforgivable for a citizen, who is locked in labyrinth of asphalt and concrete most of their time. Many recreational centres offer entertainment programme and accommodation for several days. For example, three days’ accommodation and food in one of cottages of Baden-Baden recreational centre will cost 40,000 rubles for a family of three. Recreational centres “Nezabudka”, “Solnechniy Ostrov”, country club “Peski” and many others are ready to take in guests.

One leg in Asia, one leg in Europe

Another option for a holiday in nature, but for those who do not want to leave the lights of the night city! The most popular area for tourists and locals is the "border of Europe and Asia", which delight guests with a meeting with Santa Claus, tea at the stake, delicious pies, and an exciting trip by dog ​​sled! Here the place is special, and even Grandfather Frost has a granddaughter here, the Fireboy is a bobber, you can always order this holiday from the official operator of the site.

“Rub my back, please”

Iconic comedy of Eldar Ryazanov is a staple on television for over forty years. Inspired by this film, many Russian people got to like to celebrate New Year in a banya (Russian sauna). Bath culture is wide-spread in Ekaterinburg - not without reason the city became a place, where Bathhouse Attendants’ Championship is held. That is why you have all chances to hear a chime of bells as you leave the steam room. Lovers to sit in the steam room are invited by bathhouse “Elizavetinskie”, bath and hotel complex “Gagarin”, bathhouse “Nikolaevskie”, bathhouse “Chapaevskie”, and many others - you should just type an appropriate query in a search engine.

Take your skates to have fun in winter

Multiple skating rinks are open for outdoor enthusiasts in Ekaterinburg. Making greatest wishes while skating is the most nonstandard way to celebrate the New Year. Skates rental and entrance ticket to ice rink cost about 200-300 rubles. There are outdoor ice rinks in the city, where you can skate free if you have your own sports equipment.

And, of course, you can celebrate the New Year around a holiday table in any restaurant or cafe of Ekaterinburg accompanied by Ded Moroz (a figure akin to Santa Claus), Snegurochka (Snow Maiden), interactive entertainments, and disco. But you should book tables in advance - their quantity is decreased day after day. That is why, if you want to have a real party in the New Year's Eve, you should start preparations now.
