Perm City

Perm is a city in the east of the European part of Russia located near the Ural Mountains, the capital of Perm krai. It is a port on the Kama River, a large industrial, scientific, cultural, and logistic center of the Urals.

Perm features

Perm stands on the banks of the Kama River, the largest left tributary of the Volga, to the south of the mouth of the Chusovaya River. It is the third most extensive city in Russia after Moscow and Sochi and the third after St. Petersburg and Moscow by the area it occupies. Perm stretches about 70 km along the Kama.

According to the Russian linguist and academician D.V.Bubrih’s version, the word “perm” derives from a Vepsian word “perama” meaning “far-away land”. Permian geological period (often simply “Perm”) is named in honor of the Perm province. In 1841, the British geologist Roderick Murchison allocated this geological period when he was on an expedition in the Kungur district of the Perm province.

Perm climate is temperate continental. The average temperature in January is minus 12.8 degrees Celsius, in July – plus 18.6 degrees Celsius.

The city has a flag and coat of arms approved by the decree of Empress Catherine II on July 17, 1783. City Day is celebrated on June 12 and is timed to the Day of the Declaration of State Sovereignty of the Russian Federation.

Perm is a large scientific center, where a number of institutions of the Ural branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences are located as well as dozens of other research institutions and universities.

This city is the main economic center of the region and one of the largest economic centers of Russia. The local economy is based on heavy industry. The leading industries are: electric power, oil and gas processing, mechanical engineering, chemical and petrochemical, wood processing, polygraphic, and food industries.

Perm is the first city in the Urals in terms of output, leaving behind such large cities as Ekaterinburg, Chelyabinsk, and Ufa.
