Krasnodar

There are many large cities in the south of Russia. One of these is the city of Krasnodar. Let's take a closer look at where the city is located, and also give its main geographical features.

Location of Krasnodar

The city of Krasnodar is located in the southern part of the East European Plain, on the right bank of the Kuban River, 1,350 kilometers from Moscow (to the south). Here is the largest artificial reservoir of the North Caucasus - Krasnodar reservoir. In addition, Krasnodar occupies an advantageous position with respect to the two warmest seas of Russia - the Black and Azov. The distance to each sea is no more than 150 km. In addition, the sea is fraught with many dangers. The main one is associated with the risk of earthquakes possible in the Black Sea due to seismic activity.

In terms of climate, the Krasnodar Territory is the mildest in the whole territory of the Russian Federation. There are many well-known resorts.

To get to Krasnodar is possible by various modes of transport. Thanks to its own airport, communication is carried out not only with the two capitals - Moscow and St. Petersburg, but also with Yekaterinburg and Novosibirsk.
