The Perm Opera House is a good spot to check out while you are in Perm. Another interesting spot is the Perm State Gallery.
Staying in only one place, regardless of its popularity, will only ever provide you with a limited view into the broader textures and qualities of a region. So allow time to tour Perm Krai's other sights and attractions. If you're keen to explore more of the region, you'll find Polazna, 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the south, and Chernaya 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the southeast.
Come see much-loved sporting heroes, the FC Amkar Perm, take on their rivals in the Zvezda Stadium. Zvezda Stadium is in Perm, 2 miles (3 kilometers) to the south of Perm. On game days the area around the stadium becomes a sea of red and black, as local soccer lovers come together to get behind their beloved team.
Perhaps one of the most endearing gestures you can pay to locals you'll encounter in your travels is to go to the trouble of understanding a few common words and phrases. "Xotite potancevat?" ("Would you like to dance with me?") is useful. And, learning "Otkuda ty?", which means "Where are you from?", can make all the difference.
When the time comes to leave Perm, spend the last of your rubli on last-minute souvenirs and say Poka! (farewell).
