Murmansk is my native land that’s why I would like to tell you about Murmansk. Murmansk is the largest city beyond the Polar Circle. It is situated on the shores of the Kola Bay on Kola Peninsula. Murmansk was founded on October the fourth 1916. First it was called Romanov-on-Murman. But after the October Socialist Revolution in 1917 it was called Murmansk. First Murmansk was a small-settlement. After the Socialist Revolution Murmansk began to develop rapidly and before the great Patriotic War it was quilt a big town. During the Second World War Murmansk was badly destroyed. But now it’s beautiful city with new districts, modern buildings. The population is about 300.000 people.
