The abbreviation “ufa” stands for Unusual Air Force. It is a division of the United States Air Force and the name is given to certain aircraft that are operated by members of this force. This division was established in 1947 and its purpose was to counterbalance the growing strength of the British Air Force. Ufa is itself quite large with large electrical industries producing telecommunication equipment, power and exploration machinery, automobiles, and typewriters among other things. Ufa is also a major focus of pipelines and railroads in the head of navigation in Belaya.
Belaya became an important part of the Ufa International Airport, but it was not considered by Belaya’s leaders to be a necessary station in the transportation of goods and people. Therefore, Belaya decided to build a railroad that would link the capital of Belaya and Ufa. locomotives and freight trains were built to transport supplies between the two cities. The first passenger trains crossed the Volga River from Moscow to Chemnitz, and then on to Kubatet and Osibova. Since the construction of this railroad was a joint venture with the Russian Railroad, it was known as the “Mladenov-Kubatet” or “Bellingham-Kubatet” in the English-Russian vocabulary.
The railway brought goods and travelers into the city center of Belaya. By the end of the 1960s, however, the railway had completely stopped and Ufa became the sole link between the capital of ufa and the rest of the world. A few kilometers away from the new Ufa International Airport is the village of Ovdolin, which used to be a depot of the infamous “Bellingham Rats”. The Rats were notorious for roaming the streets of the capital of ufa and for participating in the gay community’s nightlife. Today, Ovdolin is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Russia, particularly to those interested in balmy climate vacations.
St. Petersburg’s Red square, a UNESCO World Heritage site, is where the President Hotel is located. Although the hotel is located just a few blocks away from the Red square, it is situated in an entirely different historical and cultural zone. For example, the red square is in Old Town, while the President Hotel is in Old Soviet building. Locals in the region will readily tell you that the Red square is populated by prostitutes who ply their wares at the bars, while the President Hotel, although not a brothel, is located right in the heart of the Old Town.
Because of its location, St. Petersburg is the perfect place for both tourists and businessmen. The hotels here are not only affordable, but they are conveniently located. At one time, it was an altogether strange sight for travelers to walk between two extremely expensive hotels, both located in the same complex, with both offering highly lavish services and complimentary breakfast (breakfast served in the form of tea). Today, however, with all the modern amenities, it is easy for business travelers to switch between the two hotels without a second thought.
When booking for a vacation, a traveler should always take into account how comfortable he or she is with fellow travelers. A large part of a vacation or trip is finding new friends to converse with, so a traveler’s first stop shouldn’t be somewhere where other guests are present. For example, if you’re planning on visiting the Irkutsk oblast (the capital of Ufa) during your visit to Russia, you should consider choosing one of the restaurants that serve food exclusively for Russian visitors. In St. Petersburg, the restaurants that serve foreign food are usually located in very close proximity to each other. Even if you are traveling with family or a group of friends, it’s always best to meet up in a public place rather than in a restaurant.
