Novorossiysk, nestled in the southern expanse of Russia within the Krasnodar region, stands as a significant urban center.
Functioning as the administrative hub of the municipal entity “City of Novorossiysk” it graces the southwest of the region, adjacent to Tsemes (Novorossiysk) Bay of the Black Sea.
Emphasizing its vital role as a transportation hub, Novorossiysk accommodates the Naval Base of the Black Sea Fleet of the Russian Federation and holds the distinction of being the largest port in Russia and the Black Sea. This encompasses passenger and cargo ports along with an oil harbor. Moreover, it serves as a pivotal highway intersection and marks the terminus of a crucial railway line originating from Krasnodar.
Bestowed with the esteemed title of a Hero City since September 14, 1973, Novorossiysk stands as a testament to valor and resilience.
