Murmansk is my native city

My name is Elena Varzugina.
I am 13 years old.
I am from Murmansk.
I study at secondary school №49.

I like learning English, drawing and writing stories. I decided to take part in the competition ‘Our country is our heritage’ because I want to tell you about my place which I am proud of.

Murmansk is situated in the northwest part of Russia, on the shore of the Kola Bay, behind the Polar Circle. Murmansk features a subarctic climate, with long and cold winters and short but relatively mild summers. The weather is very changeable. Sometimes we have weather from each season all in one day. In summer the midnight sun and a lot of wild flowers show the gentle side of Russian north. Murmansk was founded on the 4th of October, 1916.
The word ‘Murman’ means ‘Norman’. Russian people called ancestors of the Norwegians as ‘Murmans’. In March, when the sun appears over the horizon, a ‘Northern Sport Festival’ is held. It has been celebrated since 1934. Skiing, biathlon, reindeer racing and other sport events are included in the program. The Festival is very popular among the sportsmen from Russia and other countries. Murmansk cannot boast any unusual sights or exotic landscapes, which draw tourists.
But there are a lot of places of interest. If you are interested in the history of Murmansk and the Kola Peninsula you should visit the Local Lore Museum. It was set up in 1926. It is an educational and scientific research centre. The museum is well-known for its exhibition and about 150.000 exhibits are kept there. The capsule with the message for the people of the 22nd century was laid in 2000. The library of the museum is the oldest one in our city.
Everyone who admire with paintings and works of applied arts can be enjoyed visiting the Art Museum. The Art Museum occupies the first brick building in Murmansk. It was built in 1927 and used as a department store. The unique scenes of beauty are reflected in the works of Murmansk artists which are represented there.
I am proud of my hero city and love it very much.
