Olympic Fire in Krasnodar! 4 February 2014 !
My city is located near the Black Sea. The area of Krasnodar Territory (“ Krasnodarskiy Kray” in Russian) is big. It includes several large cities such as Sochi, Novorossiysk and Anapa.
It is almost like a small country.
In the 18th century Russian Cossacks received this land for their service to Russia from Empress Catherine II who presented the land to Cossacks.
At first the city was called Yekaterinodar (Catherine’s Gift”), then it was renamed into Krasnodar, which means “a fine gift”.
Not many people know about the sights of this territory.
They say a lot of centuries ago the Great Silk Way passed here. Scientists found traces of the Roman civilization. There are magnificent sand and stony beaches, the rich underwater world for diving and mountain rivers for rafting in this territory. Yasnaya polyana (“Bright Glade”) is a famous ski resort where our President likes to have an active rest.
Many various little shops and small cafes. Ice skating rink, bowling and cinema theaters. Here you can buy everything... more travel advice
here fishes of the Black Sea and the whole world are brought together. It is possible to see dangerous and not dangerous... more travel advice
