Russian astronaut posted picturesque photos of Ufa on social media
Sergey Ryazansky shared Ufa footage from orbit. He wrote that night pictures of megacities look very impressive, and this time he wants to show one of the Russian cities. The post provides some interesting facts about Ufa.
"Ufa is the most spacious city in Russia: there are almost 700 square meters of city area per inhabitant.
Ufa is the third-longest city in Russia, after Sochi and Volgograd, and the 7th largest city, after Zapolyarny, Norilsk, Sochi, St. Petersburg, Moscow, and Perm.
Ufa is the leader among the million cities of Russia in terms of the green space area per one citizen — 202 square meters.
Another delightful fact about Ufa: no one has ever taken the city since its foundation. The city walls withstood the nomads' raids, the four-month siege, and two well-organized assaults during the Pugachev uprising" he posted.
