The President Hotel and Apartments in Ufa, Russia
UFA or Unova, as it is known in Russia is the second largest town of Bashkortostan located on the bank of the Belaya (White) River. It has a very cosmopolitan atmosphere, since many of its residents are university students. It was here that the legendary writer Pushkin lived and where the famous writer and poet Tolstoy lived, before he moved to France.
UFA was originally known as Ufas, or home of free men, but this name was changed when the city was captured by the Cossacks at the time of their victory over the White Russian army. It was from this point onwards that the city came to be known as Ufa. After the Czar’s demise, the town gradually became a Russian protectorate and the name was changed to Ufa and of bashkir. This name however, did not last long and in 17zhatsk (the present day Saint Petersburg) Ufa was redesigned into Ufa ryzhaki. The town has always retained a special place for the Russian people and tourists alike.
There are several international airports servicing Ufa, and the main Ufa airport is in Moscow, the capital city of Russia. The other important airport is in Nizhni, which is located in the center of taiavabad, the biggest urban area in ufa. From the major international airports you will need to take a cab or bus to reach the town of Ufa, which is about half an hour drive from central taiavabad.
