Ufa_Logo

 

Ufa is a capital of Bashkortostan Republic. Was founded in 1574. Today it is one of the biggest city in Russia. I spent here just couple of days. But unfortunately there are not too much to see in Ufa. City is mostly modern and rest of historical building and places disappear year by year. Anyway let's try to walk and see.

 

This monument devoted to Revolution heroes. People call it 5 minutes to 7pm. Because it placed close to the shop which closed at 7pm and monument looks like customers who are hurrying up to this shop.

A lot of modern buildings mixed with old private houses.

My hotel was almost at the city center but looks like village house. At the same time it was really cheap and comfortable.

 A lot of new ugly appartment buildings. Still don't understand how it could be created in 21st century.

Ufa has a great cluster of oil and gas and petro-chemical companies. Here placed dozens of industrial design bureau EPC companies but it is almost nothing to see for the tourist. It is very sad because in the past it was more interesting places but today this city just for business.
