Krasnodar Travel Guide: 78 reviews and 170 photos

Founded in 1794 by Zaporozhe (Black Sea) Cossacks upon orders from Catherine II, it was organized as their administrative center and called Ekaterinodar (Yekaterinodar). It served as a military center protecting Russia's Caucasian frontier. After 1918 it was the capital of the Kuban-Black Sea Soviet Republic and was renamed in 1920.



The city stands on the River Kuban, 250 km/155 mi south of Rostov-on-Don, in the centre of a highly fertile agricultural region. It occupies an area 76 thousands square kilometers and borders the Rostov and Stavropol regions and Georgia and is washed by the Azov and the Black Seas. Two thirds of the region are plains. The largest of them – the Azov-Kuban lowland – is situated to the north of Kuban River and east of the Azov Sea.
Its industries include food processing, engineering and oil refining. It is also an important railway junction. There has been considerable development of financial, business, and other services since the collapse of communism in 1991. It is linked by pipeline with the Caspian oilfields.

    Thank you for pictures from KK23 (Krasnodarskiiy Kray). I have family there and somemore family in Northern Ossetia (Vladikavkaz). I have visited two times to Krymsk and enjoyed the life there, where people take nothing for granted. I learned much there.
