Excerpt: Sverdlovsk Oblast (Russian: , Sverdlovskaya oblast) is a federal subject of Russia (an oblast) located in the Urals Federal District. Given that the bulk of the oblast lies on the Asian side of the Urals (only its south-western extremity is on the European side of the mountains) it could be recognized as the most populous oblast within Asian Russia. Its administrative center is the city of Yekaterinburg (2002 pop. 1,293,537), formerly named Sverdlovsk. Other large cities and towns include Nizhny Tagil (pop. 390,498), Kamensk-Uralsky (pop. 186,153), Pervouralsk (pop.

It is mostly here that the bulk of Russian industry was concentrated in the 18th and 19th centuries.

The area enjoys continental climate patterns, with long cold winters (average tempe...
