City Guide : Ufa
Ufa is the capital city of the Republic of Bashkortostan in Russia. It is located at the point where Ufa (Karayidere) and Belaya (Ağıdere) Rivers intersect. City of Ufa is one of the industrial centers in the Western Urals region. The name of the city, similar to its use in Turkish, means “small”. Hardwork is the norm in this city, which produces metal and electrical equipment, synthetic rubber, processed foods, oil refineries, and chemicals.
Ufa owes its development to two incidents: the reconstruction of industrial centers following World War II and the availability of oil reservoirs in the region. Three large oil refineries and a large petrochemistry industry are located in today’s Ufa.
