Description

Aleksandrovskaya hill is one of the peaks of the Ural-Tau range. It is along this ridge that the watershed passes, and hence the border of two parts of the world – Europe and Asia. Not far from the railway near the station Urzhumka a remarkable monument of granite was erected, symbolizing the border of Europe and Asia. It is interesting that it was installed back in 1892 according to the project of N.G. Garin-Mikhailovsky – a famous writer who wrote many works.

The height of the Aleksandrovskaya Sopka is 843 meters. Almost conifer trees grow to the top. The mountain is composed of quartzite. The slopes are covered with kurums, and the top is crowned with a beautiful rocky ridge. It offers stunning views of all the surroundings. You can clearly see the city of Zlatoust and Miass. At the foot of the mountain there is a good spring.
