Stavropol City

Stavropol (Stavropol-Kavkazsky in 1777-1935, Voroshilovsk in 1935-1943) is a city located in the south of Russia, 1,404 km south of Moscow, the capital of Stavropolsky krai. It is a cultural, business and industrial center of the region, one of the largest cities in the North Caucasus.

Stavropol features

The name of the city is made up of two Greek words meaning “cross” and “city”. The original fort was built on two axes which crossed each other reminding a cross. Also, one of the legends says that people found a large cross made of stone during the construction of the fortress. This was reflected in the name of the city, its flag and coat of arms.

Till 1935, the town was called Stavropol-Kavkazsky unlike the town of Stavropol located on the Volga River. When the town on the Volga was renamed, the ending “Kavkazsky” came out of use. The city is also known as “the gateway to the Caucasus”.

One of the streets of Stavropol is named “The 45th Parallel”, indicating its exact latitudinal position. Thus, Stavropol is equidistant from the North Pole and the equator. Another feature of the city is that forests adjoin close to urban areas. The total area of greenery is more than 4400 hectares. Stavropol is divided into three districts: Leninsky, Oktyabrsky, Promyshlennyy (Industrial).

Stavropol is known for frequent strong winds with a velocity of 20-25 m/s. February and March are the most windy months. The average temperature in January is minus 2.3 degrees Celsius, in July – plus 22.3 degrees Celsius.

Today, over 400 plants make up an economic base of Stavropol. They produce medicines, mono crystals, electric measuring tools, metal constructions, foodstuffs. Mechanical engineering is the main industry of the city – production of electronic equipment, auto parts, ship systems, anticorrosion systems, measuring tools, etc.
