Kopeisk - the Centre Of Machine-Building
January 16, 2017 16:00


Kopeisk borders on Chelyabinsk and seems just another city area of the industrial giant. It was true some time ago - not on paper, but in fact. Kopeisk emerged and developed as a town of coal miners, but in 1990s all the coal mines within the town border were closed, so local residents have long worked mainly with Chelyabinsk enterprises. Today the town is recovering from the crisis and becomes not a coal town, but a diversified one.

The biggest Russian enterprise for the production of mining equipment, Kopeisk Machine-Building Plant is located here. The plant, by the way, is one of the main tourist attractions of the city, it regularly conducts excursions.

Those who prefer outdoor recreation to industry can visit one of the lakes near the city. The biggest of them, Kurlady, is located literally at a stone’s throw from Kopeisk, nevertheless it is excellent for fishing (it is best to fish from a boat), and during the season you can also hunt ducks on the lake. Kurlady is generally a “bird” place: in addition to game - ducks and godwits, you can find rare species of birds here. For example, the local pride is Dalmatian pelican.
