This is an old merchants’ city at 84 km from Perm situated on the banks of Sylva, Iren and Shakva rivers.

Kungur was built at the beginning of the XVII century as a commercial port, that’s why still you can see a lot of old merchants’ estates there. There’s even an ancient mall (Gostiny Dvor) – a symbol of the merchants’ past of Kungur. Another Gostiny Dvor is now occupied by the Merchants’ History Museum.
