Famous spring, Sverdlovsk - Sverdlovs'k

Famous spring, Sverdlovsk

Getting Water for Home

You can see this spring in Brykin Street, next to Forest Glade cafe.
This spring attracts lots of people who come here with their plastic bottles to get some drinking water for home to avoid drinking tap water whose quality leaves much to be desired.

City Honor Board of the best workers - Sverdlovs'k

City Honor Board of the best workers

Honoring Outstanding Workers

It has long been a tradition, and this city is not an exception, to build such Honor Boards in our cities where you can see the pictures of the best workers of the city who were decorated with different orders and medals for their labor.
This Board of Honor is very special for all the pictures were made on the black marble, which is very peculiar, but looks a bit sad.
I think it stresses that the city is famous as a miners city above all.
This Board of Honor is located in Engels Street, the central street of the city.

City skating rink, Sverdlovsk, Ukraine - Sverdlovs'k

City skating rink, Sverdlovsk, Ukraine

Skating Rink

Every snowy winter there is a skating rink at the city stadium.
It is located to your right after you enter the stadium.
I think it is at the place of the tennis courts and it is a paradise for kids.
You can also rent skates there and there is no entrance fee.
