Street map of Ekaterinburg?
« on: May 16, 2007, 11:57:31 PM »
Would anyone happen to have or know where I can find a map of the city of Ekaterinburg?  And I'm not talking about a Russian political map...I mean a literal map of the city of Catherine.  One that indicates roads, buildings, etc. 
The only maps I've been able to find on here so far are political/national Russian maps.   :-\

I know it isn't what you're looking for, but on a related note, everyone should download Google Earth and check out Ekaterinburg on that. I was astounded (and unaware) of the huge lake near the place . . . a very obvious place to hide bodies, I would think.  ;)

Oh and Pushkin has not been adequately mapped on Google Earth (yet), which is unfortunate.  :(

Oh man!  :-[ I forgot about Google!

Another site comes to mind...one that has satellite photographic-maps.  Can't remember if it was MapQuest or Yahoo, or maybe even Google itself.  But I'll check all anyhow.

Merci.  ;)

It's the Google Earth Alice is speaking about :)

There's a thread with some posted images:
http://forum.alexanderpalace.org/index.php/topic,9292.0.html

And about the map of Ekaterinburg, here's one:
http://its.ekburg.ru/eng/495/

It's in Cyrillic though :/
Hope it's any help

Hm, for some reason I wasn't able to modify my last post.

Anyway, I found one another non-cyrillic one :)

http://flats.h1.ru/mapp.html

It's not as detailed as the other one and there are no links to pictures but it's the best one I found so far :)


Anyone happen to have a city plan of Tobolsk btw?

This is the exact type of map I was looking for!  Thank you Alexander! 

All I need to do is find the site of the Ipatiev house.  More like finding Waldo!  ::)

Merci!

Karla Libknehta Street.

When was Vosnesensky Prospekt renamed to Karla Libknehta?

I am going to assume somtime during Soviet rule.  After all, Ekaterinburg was named Sverdlovsk (horrid spelling) after the Civil War...not to mention the building and re-naming of several structures and monuments dedicated to the revolution. 

If not, perhaps sometime after 1991?

It must have been during the Soviet rule.
If any name-changing happened after 1991, it's changing Soviet names back to their pre-revolutionary name.

A part of the name-changing happened during the 1920's but I haven't found anything about this particular street.
But seeing as Liebknecht was a communist revolutionary in Germany who was tortured, interrogated and then shot in 1919, I wouldn't be surprised if that street was named after him not long after his death.

My map quests have always been to find the old maps.  The ones that would have been accurate in the early 20th century.

I would like to see what was not what is now.

Does anyone have links for that?

This is more of a Bump than a response. I too would like to see a map/street plan of the area around the Ipatiev House around the time of the murder of the Royal family...and failing that a street plane from as close a date as possible. I am hoping that since the original post, research has turned something up (ever the optimist!).

Thanks in advance for any help given.

Well, unless you get one from a foreign guide book, such maps will be in Russian.
Such as --

In 1920:
http://www.1723.ru/read/map/ekaterinburg-1920.htm

In 1910:
http://www.1723.ru/read/map/1910.htm
http://www.1723.ru/read/map/1910-2.htm

Or 1900: http://www.1723.ru/read/map/mapmetenkov.htm
http://www.1723.ru/read/map/map-1900.htm

These are taken from a site which has maps of Ekaterinburg from 1723 till the present:

The second 1900 map actually shows the Ipatiev house.  Little did anyone know when this map was produced, to what use the house would be put 18 years later.
