Sevastyanov’s House (Ru) is one of the most beautiful old Russian mansions and the main decoration of Ekaterinburg. Built in the neo-Gothic style, it resembles a gingerbread house, due to its red-green nesting. The exact date of construction is not known for sure, but the mansion was first mentioned already in 1817. Today the mansion houses a government institution, so most of us can only admire it from the outside. Get directions.
