My lovely city Krasnodar

 

History of Krasnodar city counts more than two centuries. It started in 1793 from a small fortress founded by Cossacks, who were moved from Ukraine upon the order of Russian Empress Catherine the Great. Originally the fortress was called as Ekaterinodar (the gift of Catherine) but later, in 1920, this name was changed to Krasnodar (the red gift).

Krasnodar is a capital of Krasnodar region, one of the most picturesque places of our country. It has a very warm climate and, being close to the Black Sea , our region attracts a large number of tourists in both, to the seaside resorts, and in winter, to the ski-resorts.
