Republic of Bashkortostan: Salavat - the City Of Oil
February 12, 2017 21:23

Salavat located in the very heart of Bashkiria is an oil city. Oil literally feeds and nurses it. Thanks to it, Salavat is considered the most favorable small city of Bashkiria.

The city-forming enterprise which is called after SNOS (“Salavat Petroleum Organic Synthesis” in Russian) abbreviation out of old habit improves parks, finances schools and hospitals, helps the best graduates. Even stars give gigs in Salavat more often than in Ufa . The whole city can be explored by foot in half an hour.

The central street is called Lenina Street, and it hardly could be called otherwise, because Salavat was built in 1948 as a settlement for a new petrochemical plant. Its architectural looks correspond to the circumstances of its emergence: the full-fledged Stalin Empire style, two-three-storey barracks in quiet courtyards a little further from the centre.

The city administration building is really outstanding (we’d rather say, it is a Temple of the city administration, or at least a Palace): a porch with massive columns, rusticated walls, the Soviet emblem with hammer and sickle on the frontispiece. The Palace of Culture “Neftekhimik” was built in the same luxurious style. With regard to the barracks, these are the first houses of Salavat built by Gulag prisoners. An industrial zone of a huge “Salavatnefteorgsintez” refining complex (earlier called “Salavat Petroleum Organic Synthesis” which is now called “Gazprom Neftegaz Synthesis”).

The company’s employees flowed to the gate house through Severnaya Street every day, and the tram tracks in Salavat were laid taking into account this route. Until now the tram has been running only in two directions: to the industrial zone and back. A working mountain-skiing complex “ Zirgan-Tau” is located 12 kilometers away from the city. The people having rest here are mostly the residents of the nearby Salavat, Ishimbay and Sterlitamak. The resort has only three trails with their lengths 800, 1200 and 2000 meters, accordingly.
