In spite of its multicultural character, Perm is Russian till the bone.
Wide avenues, big squares and parks, many statues, dominant Soviet architecture, countless little kiosks, huge theatres and trolley busses everywhere - all make Perm as Russian as Russian can be.
Citizens still loudly celebrate Perm's birthday on 12th of June, with street parades, concerts and fireworks throughout the whole city!
In spite of being a relatively young city, Perm played an important role in the history of Russia.
Until the end of the cold war, Perm did not appear on certain Soviet-made maps, nor did the roads towards it. Actually, it currently is one of Russia's fastest growing cities because of its economical prosperity.
Most people from outside the Urals simply did not know of the existence of the - at that time - 1 million citizens of Perm.
Not the least part of this role was played by Ermak, who was from the Perm Province.
Ermak, by order of the Stroganov family, gathered an army here and led it through the Urals, later to succesfully conquer Siberia for Russia.
Furthermore, Russian orthodox churches, a mosque, a synagogue and several Catholic churches (some dating from the 17th century) all exist next to each other in Perm.
The multicultural character of Perm also shows in its dining possibilities; one does never have to go far to experience the Russian, Uzbek, Georgian or Caucasian cuisine.
