Novorossiysk is my native town. Novorossiysk is one of the oldest cities in Russia. It is a large maritime city. Owing to its position Novorossiysk has long been one of the leading commercial ports in Russia. The city is surrounded by high mountains, covered with green forest. The history of Novorossiysk is connected with the arrival of Russian ships to the Tsemeskaya bay in 1838. A fortress founded there, was later called Novorossiysk, and the town developed into a large commercial and industrial centre in the south of Russia. The city was founded by admiral Raevsky and Lazarev.
During its history the town lived though 4 wars. Many times it had to defend our country on the Southern front. The town was completely destroyed twice, especially after the Second World War. In 1942 Hitler troops were near the city. During the whole year: Novorossiysk was the arena of fiece battles, but fascists ships could not came into Tsemeskaya bay. In 1943 the city was completely liberated by the Soviet Army. But after the war the town and the port were reborn and rebuild and became even more beautiful. It proudly has the name of a « hero city » and keeps the memory of its defenders.
Over the past 50 years old many new plants, policlinics, hospitals, institutes, schools, cinemas, theatres and houses have been built. Everything is available here for normal works and life. Novorossiysk is the home – Port of Novorossiysk Shipping Company. There are many places of interest in Novorossiysk. Many monuments remind us about those unforgettable days: the monument to the Un know Sailor, Motor-torpedo Boat the monument to the Soldiers Defenders of Novorossiysk, many monuments to the Heroes of the Soviet Union who were buried there, the Hero Square, the memorial complex Malaya Zemlya and so on.
The port of Novorossiysk is one of the biggest Russian ports at the Black Sea. In conclusion I would like to add that the cement producer by cement plants in Novorossiysk is know all over the world.
Those who traveling in Novorossiysk like to spend their time visiting museums, looking at shop windows and dining at exotic restaurants. Most tourists and holiday markets take a camera with them and take pictures of everything that interests them. Later, perhaps years later, they will be reminded by the photos of the happy time they have had. Tourists from other country, Germany, London and others, see and learn a lot of things in Novorossiysk, that they can never see or learn at home.
