Blagoveshchensk, a city located about 7,850 kilometers east of Moscow, is the capital of Amur Oblast, the fifth largest city in the Russian Far East. The city stands on the left bank of the Amur River, on the border of Russia with China, directly opposite the Chinese city of Heihe.

Blagoveshchensk was built up like a Roman military camp: wide, straight streets were parallel and perpendicular to each other. Some originated from the Amur River, others from the Zeya River. The blocks were regular rectangles. This layout of the city is still preserved. Today, Blagoveshchensk stretches for 8 km along the Amur and 13 km along the Zeya.

This city is located on the same parallel with the southern part of Central Russia and Kyiv (Ukraine). Despite this, winters are longer and much colder here. Blagoveshchensk has the continental version of the temperate monsoon climate. Summers are hot with a significant amount of sunshine. Winters are cold, dry, with little snow. The average temperature in January is minus 21 degrees Celsius, in July – plus 22 degrees Celsius.

Public transport in Blagoveshchensk is represented by buses, minibuses, and taxis. In addition, ships (in winter – buses, in the off-season – hovercrafts) carry passengers across the Amur River.
