JOURNEY TO KRASNODAR KRAY

The city of Krasnodar was renamed in 1920. In Russian, the word “krasnij” can be understood with the meanings of red and splendid. The actual name of the city seems to mean both things: beautiful city or gift of reds, because during the Civil War this city passed under the control of several armies, including the Red Army. It was founded in 1793 by the Cossacks, with the name of Ekaterinodar (Catherine’s gift).

Krasnodar is a region of southern Russia, bordering on Ukraine to the west, Rostov Oblast to the north, Stavropol to the east, Georgia and Karačaj-Circassia to the south. http://russiatrek.org/krasnodar-krai When planning your trip, you will have to remember that this area of Russia has a humid subtropical climate (the coldest month is January), where winters are cold and damp, with variable snow cover.
