The Urals were found by the people of Novgorod in the XI century during the trips to Pechora and Urga. You can find the description of these mysterious mountains in the old Arabian notes and Scandinavian sagas.

The Ural region is not only famous for it's mountains but for the rivers and brooks which take their beginning here. There are hundreds of beautiful lakes. In the mountainous region there are 821 lakes, splendid glaciers and waterfalls.
