The Urals – not only a geographical junction, but also a junction of cultures of the different people. The first people appeared for tens centuries here B.C. In the Middle Ages pagan, Muslim and Christian cultures were crossed here. But didn't exterminate each other, and formed a new form.
Since the XVII century the Urals turned into the industrial center of the country which to this day and remains. There was a final colonization by Russians of this region. The factory civilization became a new layer in the history of the Urals.
However, today, myths and reality, the past and the present of the Urals coexist, form the special Ural world not similar on one another. Ancient pagan images store mountains, the rivers, the woods here, they impregnated also people who live here.
