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.

    Hello, Julia! Your city looks very nice indeed, but the hotel prices are a bit too high for me....Still, I would like to visit some day...

    It sounds like a beautiful place to live, thanks ofr sharing. Thank you also for passing by my Australia page. Ignore the comment by Victoria37; I bet she can't type Russian as well as you can type English!

    The information is very useful, but I wish there were less mistakes in the text.

    Many years ago, my city (Tallahassee) signed an agreement to be sister cities with Krasnodar. Do you know a local politician named Boris Staroselsky? He visited here once when he was Krasnodar's mayor. :)
