It wouldnt be an exaggeration to say that Yekaterinburg is a very comfortable and perspective city to live in: here there are all opportunities to get a higher education, find an appropriate job and choose where to spend leisure time. A great number of educational institutions and organizations and one of the lowest unemployment rates in Russia are amongst the positive characteristics of the city. There are 45 functioning scientific research institutes, 30 higher education establishments, 40 centres of professional education and 150 municipal educational establishments.
