Fondest memory: I found a nice poem dedicated to this city and decided to translate it into English for you.

To You, My City
by A.Mostepanenko

The sky of Ukraine is silver blue,
The green streets are my youth.
You are my only one,
My land of miners,
A proud and sacred land of our fathers.
I return to you with my heart, my land.

I am glad for you that you are such a land.
Sunny stones are golden rays,
My working land, my dear Sverdlovsk.
Year after year we went shoulder to shoulder
Inseparable together - in the hour of happiness
And in the hour of trouble.

My coal land, I love you
And I will not find
A better one in the whole world.
Oh, my Sverdlovsk,
A miners country,
Oh, my Sverdlovsk,
Glory and honor to you!

(my translation)

I hope this little poem written in Ukrainian and translated by me will also be helpful to you, fellow travelers.
