Project on the topic of cities of Russia. Smolensk. Completed: Korotkova Kristina. Group: 19ФМ4.
Smolensk is situated to the south west of Russia. Smolensk is on the river Dnepr.
The town's area makes up 166,35 square kilometres. Its population is about 400 thousand people.
Smolensk is a Hero City because its population and the Red Army men defended it like heroes during the Great Patriotic War. There are many monuments connected with the Great Patriotic War.
One of the most ancient construction is the fortress of Smolensk. It was built in 1595-1602 years. The fortress had a great significance for the defence of Russia.
In the town there are many monuments of famous people, a lot of churches and cathedrals, the famous Uspensky Cathedral which is on the highest hill of Smolensk.
Visitors can visit famous places and museums, walk in the parks, enjoy the cafes, for exemple, the famous towns cafe in the russian style.
Smolensk is a very interesting, beautiful and very "different" town. I'd like to live in Smolensk because it is always clean, the people are friendly and welcoming there. This town gives a lot of positive impressions and emotions.
