My native town.
My native town is Voronezh. I am proud to be its citizen. The history of Voronezh is bound up with the history of ,
Russia. The first mention of Voronezh can be found in the Russian chronicles dated back to the 12-th century. At that time a multy-towered fortress was erected on the right bank of the Voronezh River to shield off the Russian land from the nomadic tribes.
By the middle of the 16-th century Voronezh developed into a bustling, densely populated city. At the turn of the 18-th century Peter the Great built his first flotillia here. In 1812 in the battle of Borodino the Voronezh popular levy stood the ground. The Voronezh people took part in the Narodnic organizations, in three revolutions and in the Great Patriotic War of 1941-1945. Today Voronezh is one of the largest industrial cities of Russia. The trade mark of Voronezh can be seen on farm machinery, TV-sets, radio receivers, tyres and aluminium construction parts. The 11-86 and 11-96 aircraft came off the line here.
Voronezh is a city of science. It has dozens of research centres, a university, nine colleges. The city has rich cultural i traditions. Its first drama theatre lifted its curtain in 1802. The priceless treasures of Voronezh land are Koltsov's verses, Nikitin's poetry, Kramskoy's paintings, fairy tales colIected by A. Afanasyev, folk songs gathered by M. Pyatnitsky. In Voronezh one can visit the Opera and the Ballet Theatre, the Puppet Theatre, the Philarmonic Society, the Russian Folk Choir, the Kramskoy's Fine Arts Museum, the | Nikitin's Literary Museum and the Museum of Local Lore.
The city of Voronezh honours its past and is full of creative effort and vitality.
