Ivanovo – Features
The city of Ivanovo is located in the center of Ivanovo Oblast on the banks of the Uvod River, about 100 km from Yaroslavl, Vladimir, and Kostroma. Unlike these neighboring cities, Ivanovo developed primarily as an industrial center with a significant number of industrial enterprises. The City Day is celebrated at the end of May.
The climate is temperate continental. Summer is warm, but not hot; winter is moderately frosty with permanent snow cover. The coldest month of winter is January with an average monthly temperature of minus 12 degrees Celsius, the warmest month of summer is July, which average monthly temperature is plus 18.8 degrees Celsius.
Public transport in Ivanovo is represented mainly by mini-buses. In addition, the city has a network of trolleybus routes. There are 7 universities in the city: polytechnic, chemical-technological, energy, Ivanovo State University, medical, agricultural, and fire rescue academies.
In the northern part of the city there is the Ivanovo Northern Railway Station, which is a large railway junction. The first railway station was built in 1894. In 1934, a new, more spacious train station was built next to it, which to this day is the largest architectural monument of modernism in Russia. There are regular daily trains to Moscow and St. Petersburg.
Ivanovo is traditionally considered the center of the textile industry in Russia. At the moment, the number of textile enterprises has slightly decreased compared to the times of the USSR, but there are a lot of sewing enterprises. Today, food industry enterprises are developing, as well as trade and services. Also there are several chemical enterprises in the city.
Ivanovo, the center of light industry, received an unofficial name the “city of brides”, since a large number of women worked at its fabric manufacturing and processing enterprises. Andrei Mironov’s song “Well, why are we not a couple”, sounded in the Soviet movie “Honest, Intelligent, Unmarried” (1981), also played a certain role in the popularization of this expression. In each of its three verses there are such lines:
I tell you about my love again and again,
But when I will be tired of it,
You should know that I’ll go to Ivanovo,
And Ivanovo is a city of brides.
Ivanovo is one of the historical and cultural centers of the country located in the center of the famous tourist route known as the Golden Ring of Russia. The city has a number of different museums, 8 pilgrimage tourism sites, and about 400 historical and architectural monuments.
In the 1920s-1930s, the city experienced its heyday, due to its reputation as a revolutionary and proletarian city. In the number of architectural monuments of those years it is second only to Moscow in the Central Federal District. The architecture of the avant-garde is widely represented here (including constructivism), which includes about 50 buildings. Also, there are several almost completely preserved pre-revolutionary textile factories, which may be of interest to those interested in industrial design.
