New tourist attraction: digging for gold in the Urals

This summer a new tourist activity will be available for tourists traveling to the Urals: they can try working as free miners in the town of Beriozovsky located 12 km away from Yekaterinburg.
      In Beriozovsky the tourists will be given cradles for washing gold-bearing dirt. However, according to the Russian legislation, private gold prospecting is forbidden, therefore the tourists will find only the pieces of gold hidden earlier on purpose.
      Beriozovsky is a little town, where the the tradition of Russian gold mining originates from. Also, there are two gold mines opened for tourists in the town: a test one for training rescuers (this mine is opened for children) and a real one for adults.
