    Perm Territory

Perm Territory is located on the Kama River at the foothills of the Ural Mountains in Russia. Although it may be the last big city in Europe, Perm is not last when it comes to cultural heritage. Nationalities that for many centuries inhabited the area produced original crafts and traditions that have fused to produce a unique Urals culture.

Perm is famous for its love for music and theatre. The first musical performance was staged here as early as 1806. Nowadays the Chaikovsky Opera and Ballet House, the Drama Theater, the Puppet Theater, the Young People's Theater and others make their audiences laugh and cry together with them. The Perm school of ballet is well-known all over the world. The nucleus of the House's repertoire is the works of the world and Russian composers, as well as all Chaikovsky's scenic works.

Fascinating and beautiful examples of local customs and arts are preserved in Perm museums. Two of our museums, the State Art Gallery and Regional Natural History Museum that are housed together in a former cathedral, are well known throughout Russia.

Visitors also enjoy the Ethnographical Museum of Wooden Architecture, located near Khokhlovka village. Kungur, a small town of the region, is fame-favored for its unforgettably glamorous Ice Cave enchanting tourists with its ice diamonds.
