About City 

Ufa is the fifth largest city in the country in terms of area and length, which makes it the most spacious city with a population of over 1 million people. The length of the city from north to south is 54 km, and from west to east – 30 km. The climate in Ufa is moderately continental and rather humid. Summer is warm with slight temperature fluctuations from month to month, winter is moderately cold and long. 

The city’s economy is based on fuel and energy and machine-building complexes. One of the largest oil refining complexes in Russia is located in Ufa. In total, about 200 large and medium-sized industrial enterprises are concentrated in this city. Ufa is a major transport hub in Russia. Highways connect it with Moscow, Chelyabinsk, Kazan, Samara, Perm, and Orenburg. 

Traditional Bashkir cuisine is pleased with the names of oriental dishes: kulama, tukmas, kazy, beshbarmak, uchpoch-mak, balish, and gubadiya. All this can be found in the menus of Ufa restaurants. One of the distinguishing features of Ufa is the elusive fusion of national cultures, a combination of Christianity and Islam. There are not so many cities in Russia where mosques are organically adjacent to Orthodox churches. The main architectural feature of the Bashkir capital is a very small number of stone buildings from the pre-revolutionary era. Almost all cultural monuments are wooden; unfortunately, their number is decreasing every year. The most beautiful one is the light and music fountain, located in front of the Opera and Ballet Theater. The city is full of attractions for young people and international students such as modern museums, Indian restaurants, Asian restaurants, Russian restaurants, food stores, art galleries, cinemas, and recreation areas.
