Surely everyone heard about this city, because it is the heart of the south of Russia. Krasnodar is located on the right bank of the Kuban River. And it is the administrative center of the Krasnodar Territory. As the locals say, “If there is paradise in the world, it is the Krasnodar Territory.” A city where winter lasts only a few days, and the maximum temperature reaches -10. Of course, they don’t eat bananas from palm trees, but there is something more interesting here … Krasnodar residents can arrange a day off on the seashore, spending only a couple of hours on the road. That is what the heart of the south means!
But the city itself is full of sights and fascinating architecture. The people here are friendly, loud. Krasnodar fairs are a small Turkey where you can feel the history of the Cossack capital. Indeed, it was this city that Catherine the second gave to the Cossacks on eternal possession on June 30, 1792, and in 1793 the present city of Ekaterinodar was founded by the Black Sea Cossacks, initially as a military camp, and later as a fortress. Locals honor the history of their hometown and perform national songs and dances in the squares.
At the moment, the city is expanding and modernizing. Many cozy cafes on the main street of Krasnaya, cinemas, parks, restaurants, entertainment and shopping centers, and, of course, nature. Mountains, forest, golden fields, meadows – all this is Krasnodar. Of course, not without singing fountains. There are two such fountains in the city. One of the cinema “Aurora”, the second in the theater square. Residents gather here to listen to classical music and recharge their batteries for the next week.
