Perm was first mentioned as the village of Yegoshikha in 1647; however, the history of the modern city of Perm starts with the development of the Ural region by Tsar Peter the Great. Vasily Tatishchev, appointed by the Tsar as a chief manager of Ural factories, founded Perm together with another major center of the Ural region, Yekaterinburg.
Situated at the base of the Ural Mountains, Perm is one of the largest cities in the Urals Region. The city is uniquely positioned on the border between Europe and Asia. Perm's location on the banks of the Kama River, the fourth-largest river in Europe, makes it an important shipping port. Perm is a large administrative, industrial, scientific and cultural center, located at the intersection of important routes of transportation and communication. Perm is famous for its cultural traditions. The city boasts professional theaters, interesting museums and exhibition halls, and important historical and architectural monuments.
