Ufa is among the biggest cities in Russia, the second largest city in Bashkortostan Oblast, formerly known as Stavropol.

The main economic and political center of ufa is Bashkortostan Republic, which is located along the banks of River Rasht river. The city was divided into two parts: Ufa oblast and Ufa st Petersburg. Until recently, the region was considered backward by most tourists, but nowadays it has turned out to be an interesting transportation hub that offers a lot of interesting sights, sounds, and even recreational opportunities. It was in 1992, when the Soviet Union collapsed, and many economic and social changes took place. Many economic and educational institutions were closed down, and most of them were relocated to Ufa, which became one of Russia’s main economic, cultural, and political centers.
At present, the region is considered to be one of leading Russian cities.
