Chelyabinsk, Russia, has a very nice traveling location. It is close to Ufa, Yekaterinburg, and Kazakhstan, where the closest larger city is Kostanay. Chelyabinsk is surrounded by lakes, as some of them are included in the city boundaries. However, swimming in them is dangerous and not recommended because the water is heavily polluted and you swim at your own risk. Although Chelyabinsk was a Kazakh city when it was founded almost three hundred years ago; now, there are more than a hundred nationalities living peacefully, with a Russian majority, but also well-represented Tatar and Bashkir minorities. The city offers an interesting mixture of different cultures.

Not surprisingly, Chelyabinsk is definitely not a party city, but it has interesting places to visit, such as the pedestrian street Kirovka with a lot of monuments on it; the Victory Square, dedicated to World War II and preserving the Eternal Flame; the Historical Museum of Southern Ural; the Museum of the History of the South Urals Railway; and others. Also, winters are cold, although not as cold as in Siberia -- here, the average temperature in the winter is “only” about minus-ten degrees Celsius. Generally, Chelyabinsk is a nice city to visit for a day or two.

Hostels in Chelyabinsk, Russia, are spread all over the city. However, most of them are situated near Lenin Avenue (Prospekt Lenina) and Gagarin Park.
