Home - Russia - Krasnodarskiy Kray

Krasnodar is a city in southern Russia. It's known for its steel-lattice water tower, designed in the early 20th century by architect Vladimir Shukhov. The Krasnodar Philharmonic Society hosts a range of state performance groups in an opulent 1909 hall. Nearby, the large, 5-domed St. Catherine's Cathedral was consecrated in 1914. To the north, the landscaped Chistyakovskaya Roshcha park has century-old oak trees.
