Did you know the Bashkortostan State is one of the richest Russian states?
The Novo-Ufa Petroleum Refinery, Inc. (NOVOIL) is one of the largest enterprises of the Russian Federation in terms of output of high-quality petroleum products.
This refinery has been operating successfully for more than 50 years: the first tonnes of gasoline were produced on July 25, 1951.
"Institute of Petroleum Refining and Petrochemistry of the Republic of the Bashkortostan" in Ufa is one of the best in Russia.
You can feel real different Russia here.
Since more muslim believers than ones of Russian Orthodox, the Russian Orthodox Church here is quite small.
But the inside of the church is bearutifully decorated and quite impressive.
Fondest memory: Very friendly people here.
They know religion and arts.
