Ufa is 11th biggest city in Russia, but there are not many things to do, especially in winter.Summer is the best time to visit Ufa, Russia.

Ex., A-kafe (prospekt Oktyabrya, 75), Rise (Gostinnyi...more

It was cheap and comfortable, I traveled in the city by bus, tram and walk, and I had no problem with transport.
Ufa is the capital of the republic of Bashkortostan, the national home of the Bashkir people. The Bashkirs are traditionally a nomadic people, of Turkic origin, and with an Islamic cultural tradition. And they have food that's as fun to say as it is delicious to eat!
There are many opportunities in Ufa to sample traditional Bashkir food. My favorite place is "Pyshka" - a chain with many locations around the city, and affordable!
- For starters, try "uchpachmak" (uch-PACH-mak) - a meat and potato pasty. True uchpachmak is made with mutton (sheep meat), but most often it's made with beef.
- A tasty dessert if "chak-chak" - fried dough covered in honey. It's only mildly sweet, so it's perfect even for those who don't like sweets. Be aware, though, chak-chak is prepared a little differently in every cafe. If you venture into a supermarket, you will see a few varieties to choose from.
