I was born, studied and live, to this day in the city of Voronezh. This is Central Black Earth. My city is already 430 years old. It is located in the European part of Russia on the banks of the Voronezh Reservoir, as well as the Voronezh River, which flows into the Don River approximately 9 kilometers.
Up to the capital of our homeland – Moscow, about 550 kilometers away, it’s very close by car, only 6 hours drive.
Voronezh is considered the “cradle” of the Russian fleet and the homeland of airborne assault.
The population of my city is over 1 million people. We have many monuments, museums, theaters, various sights. I will tell you about some of them today.
For example, I really like to stroll in the evenings on the Admiralty embankment. Here when the first ships of the Russian fleet were launched. And this was done by Peter himself. In honor of this in our city there is a copy of the ship of that time – Goto Predestination.
Now, of course, this ship-museum.
Voronezh has well-deserved awards. For courage and heroism during the Great Patriotic War my city was awarded the Order of the Patriotic War | degree. Also Voronezh awarded the Order of Lenin. and in February 2008 the city was awarded the honorary title “City of Military Glory”
We have a temperate climate, i. e., winter – moderately frosty with a good snow cover, and the summer is moderately warm, and sometimes even very hot, in months such as July and August.
There are many parks in the city, there are many green spaces and recreation areas. Among the trees there are valuable tree species, such as chestnut, oak, ash, linden, juniper and other beautiful trees.
In my city, finally, began to restore once beloved citizens – Central Park “Dynamo”. It is located in the Central area of the city, it occupies a large area of the forest belt, there are beautiful alleys for walking and rest. There are children’s and sports grounds. A small pond also serves as a decoration for the park.
In the Voronezh reservoir
there are many fish, crustaceans, insects. The reservoir divides the city into two halves. The right and left banks. These banks connect the three bridges: Severny, Chernavsky and Vogresovsky. Each of them has its own story, but about it another time.)))
We have 6 administrative districts in the city. Soviet, Central, Leninsky, Kominternovsky, Levoberezhny and Zheleznodorozhny. Two of them are on the left bank of the city – Zheleznodorozhny and Levoberezhny, and four others respectively on the right bank of the reservoir.
Voronezh is the cultural capital of the Voronezh region. We have a lot of theaters, museums, libraries, cinemas, philharmonic society, circus. Various festivals are held in the city.
Voronezh is a sports city. There are swimming pools, a sports stadium for 32,000 spectators, an ice palace, and many Olympic Reserve sports schools. At the Olympiad in Rio, Voronezh is represented by 2 athletes in 2 sports: gymnastics and cycling. The representative of sports gymnastics Angelina Melnikova became a silver medalist in the team championship.
There are a lot of monuments in Voronezh. As historical, eventful, and funny. Kitten from Lizyukova Street and White Bim Black Ear.
I really love my city, it is interesting, there is something to see, there is where to spend time, it has a wonderful history, come, you will not regret.
