UrBC, Yekaterinburg, October 3, 2018. Yekaterinburg’s District Akademicheskiy got founded nine years ago on September 30.

The celebrations involved a traditional show and a large-scale willow tree planting session that took place along the boulevard between Quarter 0 and Preobrazhensky Park (from Wilhelm de Gennin St to Anatoly Mekhrentsev St). According to, the newly planted trees are specimens of crack willow (Sálix fragílis) 2 to 2.5 meters tall. The tree alley will get extended all the way to Chkalov St in the future.

In addition to this, Preobrazhensky Park’s landscape now looks more interesting with a new sculpture piece: Reindeer, mounted on a stone foundation. The artwork can be seen from almost any spot within Preobrazhensky Quarter, as it is located in the highest section of the park so far.
