Tour the Interesting City of Izhevsk

Located on the banks of the Izh River, the city of Izhevsk is the capital of the Udmurt Republic of Russia. While today visitors are free to come and go in Izhevsk, during the Soviet era it had the status of being a ‘closed city’ with restricted access for foreigners due to the manufacture of military equipment and weapons that took place in and around the city. The notorious AK-47 assault rifle was designed by Mikhail Kalashnikov and manufactured in Izhevsk. Kalashnikov, who was born in 1919 in the Southern Altai Region of Russia, reportedly still lives in Izhevsk. Although armaments are still produced in the city, the need for secrecy has diminished and there are a number of interesting tourism attractions for visitors to enjoy.
