Most of the people traveling to Russia, only visit St. Petersburg and Moscow. However, there are so many undiscovered places. Perm is one such city that I came across. This place is certainly worth a visit. In case you travel to Perm, here are some of the best things that you can see or do.
Take a Walk along Kama River
The city is located at the edge of Kama River. To spend a lazy afternoon, take a stroll along the river embankment. As I strolled, I came across the sculpture which has now become a symbolic structure of the city. You will find red letters in the Russian language which means, happiness isn’t behind the mountains. This is place against the river background and the bank that is the present opposite to it.
Catch a Ballet Dance Show
If you are a cultural buff like me and like opera, ballet, or poetry, visit the opera and ballet theatre. The ballet dance of this city is splendid. The pieces that they showcase put them on the same pedestal as Moscow’s Bolshoy or St. Petersburg’s Marrinsky. Even if you are visiting for a short period of time, you should not miss out on this.
Take Part in the Local Festival
Some internationally famous festivals are held in the city every year. One of the most popular ones is the film festival that had been inspired by Robert Flaherty. It attracts stars from all over the world. Another one is the International Diaghilev Festival. This is mainly for the lover of classical art. It is held in the month of June every year.
Check out Permyak Salty Ears
The city and the surrounding areas are known to be rich in minerals. All through the course of history, you will find the mention of salt. One of the primary symbols of the city is the Permyak Salty Ears.
