Krasnodar – the view from above

Krasnodar is a city with a population of more than 800 thousand people located in the south of Russia, on the banks of the Kuban River, about 120-150 kilometers from the Black and Azov Seas.

This city, the administrative center of the Krasnodar region, is often called the capital of southern Russia. Krasnodar is located on the so-called “golden line” – the 45th parallel, between the North Pole and the equator. The climate in the area is considered to be the most suitable for life.
