The Urals are proud to be at the junction of two parts of the world. True, the exact location of the border between Europe and Asia has not yet been found. Back in the 18th century, Vasily Tatishchev, one of the founders of Yekaterinburg, suggested that this feature is the backbone of the Ural Mountains. In August 2004, 30 km from Ekaterinburg, at the crossing point of the European-Asian border, the symbol "Europe-Asia" was installed. At the base of the symbol are two stones, symbolizing the unity of two parts of the world: one was brought from the extreme point of Europe - Cape Rock, the other - from the very edge of the Asian part of the continent - Cape Dezhnev. Ural guides say: none of the tourists perceive the border of Europe and Asia indifferently. He is a symbol of open space, the synthesis of two civilizations The history of scientific fixation of the border of Europe and Asia on the Ural watershed is 300 years old. The merit in this belongs to a prominent statesman, a famous historian and encyclopedist, the first explorer of the Urals and one of the founders of the city of Yekaterinburg, VN. Tatishchev.
