More Yekaterinburg landmarks receive QR codes

The Sverdlovsk ministry of public property announced this week that an additional 40 sites have been QR-coded for use in a virtual tour through the region's landmarks.

Included in the newest batch of coded landmarks is the Ural Scientific Chemical Institute building designed by acclaimed architect K.T. Babykin with additional adornments by S.V. Dombrovsky. Representatives from the ministry of public property said that the building, located on Vosmoye Marta St., is a telling example of the functional yet opulent style characterized in Soviet neoclassical architecture, according to Ural Business Consulting.

Additionally, the ministry has also coded a five-story residential home situated on Vosmoye Marta St. Built in the early 1930s, the building showcases the duality of modern construction techniques of the time blended seamlessly with elements of large traditional estates, Ural Business Consulting reports.
