  • Those who will visit the city for the first time in summer will be delighted with abundant greenery and flowers, and the tiled side-walks. Some of the streets make crowns of oaks and ash-trees, maples and lime-trees intertwining over-head; it is cool here even on a hot bloom, it seems as if the sweet scent of the blossoms softly floats over the land.

  • My native town is Novorossiysk. It is situated in the Krasnodarsky krai on the Black sea coast. It was founded in 1838 by Vice Admiral Raevskiy and Vice Admiral Lazarev. Novorossiysk is the biggest Russian Black sea port. It is surrounded by the Caucasian mountains. But Novorossiysk is not only a commercial port it is one of the biggest industrial towns of Kuban. The Novorossiysk plants produce high quality cement. Every day we can see a lot of ships in the Novorossiysk bay loading different goods: cement, oil, fish, timber, grain and fruit. During the Second World War there were great battles between the Soviet Army and Hitlerite forces near Novorossiysk. After hard and heroic battles, Novorossiysk was liberated. Many Soviet soldiers and officers were killed during these battles. A memorial raised over the common grave of the men killed in the action commemorates their exploit. Novorossiysk was liberated from the fascists on the 16th of September in 1943. This day is celebrated in our town as a great holiday. In 1974 Novorossiysk was awarded with the title of a Hero City for its unprecedented exploit in the Great Patriotic War. Novorossiysk is a beautiful green town nowadays. Now blocks of dwelling houses, offices, hotels, an aquapark and many other buildings have been erected in recent years. The main street of Novorossiysk is Sovetov Street. People like to walk along the Embankment very much. Our town is famous for its numerous monuments of Glory. One of the places of interest is Heroes Square and Pushkin Square. Here we can see the Eternal Fire. In our town summer is hot, and winter is warm, but sometimes North – East winds blow.
