UrBC, Yekaterinburg, October 25, 2019. Gorod Pervykh volunteers installed signposts and information stands on the path leading to Didinsky Tunnel, a popular local tourist attraction. There are now eight signs directing you to Mount Belaya and the tunnel’s western and eastern portals, and three stands with information about the landmarks.

According to ChelPipe Group’s press service, their member enterprise Pervouralsk New Pipe Plant (PNTZ) supported the NGO Gorod Pervykh by covering the cost of the signposts and stands and of the volunteers’ transfer to the site.

‘These new navigation signs are part of our Pervouralsk Paths Project: we introduce signposts and information stands along Sverdlovsk Region’s popular tourist routes. Didinsky Tunnel didn’t use to have any clear navigation signs before, but now the route is much easier to use, which will attract even more tourists,’ says Gorod Pervykh activist Danila Shestakov,

‘The tunnel next to Didino Station was built for the railway use in 1918. The tunnel proved strategically important during the Civil War, as it was used by A.V. Kolchak’s troop trains retreating to Siberia. After it got closed in the nineties, the tunnel turned into one of Sverdlovsk Region’s top tourist destinations,’ the press service says.

The NGO Gorod Pervykh was founded in Pervouralsk at the initiative of ChelPipe Group.
