Zlatoust is famous for its arms factory. In the building of the factory there is a small souvenir shop and a display hall. Usually they fill up the slots for a group on a first come, first serve basis. I was lucky that there were enough people already waiting for a tour to start. The display hall is awesome, but try to visit the local studies museum if you are a history buff.

The cold steel museum was our last stop while visiting Zlatoust. We had just done a tour of the Factory Oruzheynik, so had been taken through all the steps of construction and design. In addition we had also viewed the factory main display area, gift shop and were trained in throwing knives. This made us appreciate the displays of items in this museum even more. It is a self guided tour through two rooms of the old factory. There are many items on sale, but most of the displays are behind glass cases. The prices for the souvenirs were quite high. We viewed a few swords, but the lowest cost was 17,000 ruble. The exquisite patterns and craftsmanship that are on display are worth the visit, but we thought that the display area was small. I would advise that you do a factory tour before visiting here to really appreciate the amount of work that goes into producing these items.There are a few murals on the exterior of the building that are worth a photo, particularly to the right, there is Pavel Anosov, testing a sword in the same manner as in his nearby statue. A huge knife is to the left of the museum entrance, and to the right there are three old cannons on display. There are many attractions and monuments that are within walking distance in Central Square. The museum is a good visit, but ensure that you carry enough funds for a pricey souvenir of Zlatoust.
