In general, mankind, since the improvement of cookery, eats twice as much as nature requires. - Ben Franklin
The following is a list of sites describing this city that was named after
the wife of Peter the Great, Ekaterina. Although the direct
transliteration is Ekaterinburg, the spelling of
Yekaterinburg provides a better pronounciation. Located along the
Iset River on the east side of the Ural mountains, this historical city was
known as Sverdlovsk from 1924 to 1992 and maintains a fascinating history.
We hope this list will continue to grow as more communities become
represented on the World Wide Web so please be sure to let us know if you
are aware of any other sites.
