History of terminals and stations

Skaz Station

TaleSkaz Station (Fairy Tale Station) is located at the junction of two railways, South Urals and Sverdlovsk. It is virtually a gateway of South Ural Railways.

Not one old-timer can remember where the station got such a peculiar name, but since it is located in the same area where Paul Bazhov set his famous fairy tales, we can safely assume that the Mistress of the Copper Mountain and the master craftsman Danila are not strangers to this area.

During the holidays and weekends, tourists arrive from Chelyabinsk, Yekaterinburg, Perm, Tyumen, Krasnoyarsk and even Moscow. Nearby are the Shemakhinsky Caves, which are named after the village of Shemakha, which territorially administers Skaz. One of the caves is made of clay and you can only enter it by descending by rope. The second is filled with water. In summer, the water flows freely from there, and in winter, when it freezes, you have to walk across the ice to reach deep into the cave (800 metres). At the end of their journey, tourists find an underground lake which offers boat rides.

Sladkaya Station

SweetSladkaya Station (Sweet Station) is located on the main line of the Trans-Siberian Railway, 90 km from Kurgan. During just one shift up to 40 pairs of trains can pass through the station, which boasts two buildings. The first was built in 1905 and is made of white brick with circular tracery windows, while the other is a two-storey modern construction with large windows, a spacious waiting room and cozy rooms for the station's employees. The entire staff consists of the station master and two attendants.

According to legend, the station was called Gorky - Bitter at the beginning of the last century. But the wooden station was burned down after it was struck by a bolt of lightning. Such a bitter life made neither railway staff, nor the inhabitants of the village very happy. They therefore sent a petition to the Tsar asking for help for the fire victims. The Tsar ordered that: the new station building should be made of stone and the station called something different, such as Sladkaya - Sweet. The surrounding region here really is sweet: the woods are a cornucopia of berries and mushrooms, while the lake boasts an abundance of fish.
