Stavropol territory

The Caucasian Mineral Waters is an ideal place for recreation and medical treatment both for businessmen and romantic tours lovers.

The Stavropol territory is a part of Russia and is situated in the center of the North Caucasus, almost at an equal distance from the Black and Caspian Seas. Its area is 66 thousand square kilometers, population is more than 2500000 people. The capital of this region is Stavropol.

Since ancient times the Sravropol area has been the crossroad of the world. Its territory was crossed by the legendary Great Silk Way and many other trade roads which connected the Mediterranean countries with ancient Russia, India and China.

And up to now, the wealth and diversity of nature (from semi deserts to Alpine landscapes), the mild climate (with the average temperature in summer +22 - +25°C) the exceptionally pure air continue to attract numerous travelers to this territory.

The mountain health resorts in the South of the Stavropol territory — Pyatigorsk, Kislovodsk, Zheleznovodsk, Yessentuki, united by the name of the Caucasian Mineral Waters (CMW), are especially popular.

If you take a look at a map ol the Caucasus you will see a land of astonishing contrasts Majestic mountain peaks, endless steppes, invigorating mineral springs, picturesque lakes; relics from the distant past -all this has attracted hundreds of thousands of people from all over Russia and abroad for more than a century. All this is Stavropol Krai.

The hospitable citizens of the region, as is the custom in the Caucasus, honour the past and carefully preserve their tradi-tions and are now confidently building a modern recreation and tourism industry.

The resort of Kavkazskie Mineralnye Vody is the calling card of tourist Stavropol. Millions of visitors have felt the the restorative effects of the local mineral waters, healing muds, nature and gentle climate. Here cutting-edge technology and a century of experience in healing and recreation go hand-in-hand. The ever-growing number of guests and the increasing volume of investment are clear evidence of this.

The Kavminvody today stand as one of the main focuses ol economic growth in the North Caucasus and Russia as a whole. Project after project is coming on-stream, including the international projects that should help the area become an international-level resort in the near future.

However, Stavropol is more than the KMV. Our region also has great potential in ecological, agrarian, event, sports, extreme, ethnographic and cultural tourism.

Today the Krai attracts members of the jeeping, paraglid-ing and hang-gliding, and climbing communities, amongst others. Excursions which combine the 4history, culture, ecology and natural wealth of our region have been a particular success.

This issue of our magazine will fill in the details on all this and much more. Best of all, though, is to see it with your own eyes.

In the Caucasus the saying goes: "The first time you come you're our guest, the second time, our friend, and the third time, our brother!"

One of the most dynamically-growing regions of Russia- that's Stavropol Krai! Our state is the centre of the North Caucasus Federal Okrug (NCFO). Here, in the natural pearl of the Kavkazskie Mineralnye Vody (KMV), nestles the okrug's capital, Pyatigorsk. And that's the way it should be- Stavropol has historically played a unifying role in the Caucasus. The other regions in the NCFO, all noticeable smaller than Stavropol Krai, surround it in a continuous chain from the south to the east.

It is worth noting Stavropol's geographical position. The frontier between Europe and Asia runs along the Kumo-Manych Depression, dividing our Krai into two: the main, European, part and the smaller Asian one. Stavropol Krai measures 285 km from north to south and 370 km from west to east and occupies a central position in the South of Russia, between the Black and Caspian Seas.

Stavropol, the Krai's administrative captal, lies on the 45th parallel, exactly halfway between the Equator and the North Pole. Considerable industrial and scientific research capabilities are concentrated in the regional capital. Every fourth city resident is a student in higher education. At a recent meeting to discuss the future development of the NCFO, Prime Minister Vladimir Putin announced that in the near future a North Caucasus Federal University based on the existing tertiary education providers v would be founded.

The calling cards of the Krai are the esorts of the KMV (Caucasus Minora: Waters)- Pyatigorsk, Kislovodsk, , Yessentuki and Zheleznovodsk. The resorts are gain their edge from Stavropol's unbeatable leisure resources.
