Demidovs is the one of the most famous industrial dynasties in Russia. In the middle of the 18th century, the Demidov plants produced over 40% of cast iron in Russia.
Ancestor of the dynasty Nikita Demidovich Antyufeyev worked as an assistant to the blacksmith in the Armory settlement. Subsequently, Nikita met Peter the Great personally. This is told on the exhibition of the museum of Demidovs. Here you will see real treasures found during archaeological excavations, dishes from the Ural Demidov’s factories and hear stories and legends of the Demidovs.
Part of the museum is the Demidovs’ shrine in the Nikolo-Zaretskaya church, the only Russian church burial of the generation.
