Magnitogorsk City

Magnitogorsk (also known simply as Magnitka) is the second largest city in the Chelyabinsk region, one of the largest centers of ferrous metallurgy in the world. It is located in the south-western part of the region, close to the boundary with Bashkiria, on both banks of the Ural River, both in Asia and Europe. Magnitogorsk is situated 308 km north-west of Chelyabinsk, the distance to Moscow is 1,689 km.

Magnitogorsk features

The motto of Magnitogorsk is “The place where Europe and Asia meet”.

In addition to natural resources and favorable geographical location, Magnitogorsk has a number of historical and archaeological monuments, sports tourism facilities, and a relatively well-developed tourist infrastructure. Magnitogorsk International Airport offers regular flights to Moscow.

Magnitogorsk is often called “Magnitka”. In everyday speech this is also the name of Magnitogorsk Iron and Steel Works (MMK) and the city newspaper “Magnitogorsk Worker”. The city is called the “metallurgical capital” of Russia.

Magnitogorsk climate is continental (cold winters with little snow and dry warm summers). The average temperature in January is minus 14.1 degrees Celsius, in July – plus 19.2 degrees C.

Magnitogorsk International Airport, mountain skiing centers in Abzakovo and Bannoye Lake are located not on the territory of the Chelyabinsk region, but on the territory of Bashkortostan Republic.

Magnitogorsk is the fifth largest city in Russia (along with Tolyatti, Naberezhnye Chelny, Novokuznetsk), which doesn’t have the status of a regional administrative center. The western border of the territory of Magnitogorsk is an administrative border between the Chelyabinsk region and the Republic of Bashkortostan, the Urals and the Volga federal districts.

It is one of the twelve cities in the world located in two world parts. The Ural River flowing across Magnitogorsk divides it into two parts: the Left Bank and the Right Bank. The boundary between Asia and Europe goes along the Ural River.

During the World War II, turrets for tanks IS-2 and T-34 (85) were produced at Magnitogorsk Iron and Steel Works. According to statistics, every second Soviet tank and every third shell during the war were produced of Magnitogorsk steel.
