Yekaterinburg is located on the Iset River in the eastern foothills of the Ural Mountains in the Asian part of the country.
In Soviet times the city was known as Sverdlovsk (1924–1991).
Russian emperor Tsar Peter the Great ordered the construction of an iron-making plant in 1723. The successful construction of the metallurgical enterprise made fledgling Yekaterinburg to one of Russia's first industrial cities, and the Urals became the center of Russia's iron production. The city, named after the emperor's second wife Yekaterina, is still a center of heavy industry and steel-making.
Today, Russia's fourth-largest city has a population of approximately 1.5 million people (est. 2018). It is the capital of Sverdlovsk Oblast (an oblast is the equivalent of a American state) and the administrative center of the Ural Federal District. The city is Urals leading industrial, cultural, and scientific center and an important transportation hub. It is one of the stopovers on the Trans-Siberian Railway (between Perm and Tyumen).
Yekaterinburg is home to the Ural State University, founded in 1920 (https://urfu.ru/), and Urals Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences. Today Yekaterinburg has about twenty universities and institutions of higher learning.
