Photo and description
One of the main and frequently visited attractions of Orenburg is a cable car connecting Europe and Asia. And although the border of the parts of the world is symbolic, and the length of the road is just over two hundred meters, there are always a lot of people who want to transfer from Europe to Asia and back in a few minutes.
The Orenburg cable car, opened in February 2006 with the money of local entrepreneurs, has become a real attraction of the city. Practical Austrian equipment, the organization of the cable car and modern cabins - the Orenburg cable car quickly gained fame as the most comfortable cable car in the country. Two cabins, moving towards each other along tight cables at a speed of about 3 m / s, & nbsp; make it possible to view all the surrounding beauty from a bird's eye view.
With its small length, the cable car turned out to be in great demand among the residents of Orenburg. Connecting the city center with the Trans-Ural Grove, the passenger cable car from Europe to Asia has become not only a city attraction, but also a favorite route of all mushroom pickers and skiers. At any time of the year, an unforgettable panorama of the coastal zone opens from a comfortable eight-seater bright pinkish cabin. A beautiful embankment, a picturesque Trans-Ural Grove, the pride of Orenburg - the suspension bridge and the surrounding landscape can be seen at the crossing of the majestic Ural River on the Europe-Asia cable car.
