Chita – Features


The city is called Chita because it is located on the banks of the Chita (Chitinka) River. There are several versions of what the word “chita” means. According to the official version, it is a “river flowing from a wet place.” The City Day of Chita is celebrated on May 31.


The highest place in the city is Mount Chita (1,039 meters), the lowest – 632 meters. In the southwestern outskirts of the city there is Mount Titovskaya Sopka (780 m) – a natural-historical territory and a geological monument of nature.


The climate in Chita is sharply continental. It is also affected by the altitude of the city above sea level – an average of 650 meters. Winter in this city is very cold, with little snow, and long (about 5-6 months). The average January temperature is minus 23.9 degrees Celsius.
