I'd like to tell you about Luga. It is a nice town and the administrative centre of Luzhsky District of Leningradskaya Oblast (Leningrad Region). It is located on the Luga River, 140 kilometers to the south of Saint-Petersburg. Slavic tribes lived there in the 10th century. Luga as a town was founded on the banks of the river of that name by the order of Catherine the Great on August 3, 1777. It is a HERO CITY and one of the Cities of Military Glory of the World War II. During the Second World War this town and its citizens showed a great courage. In 1941 there were many terrible and cruel fights near Luga and the German troops were stopped there for some time and this fact helped our Army to gather its forces near Saint-Petersburg, so the commencement of the Siege of Leningrad was delayed for over a month. German occupation of Luga lasted from the 24th of August, 1941 to the 12th of February, 1944. During all the war the citizens were fighting against Nazism.
Now Luga is famous for its resources of mineral water, many clean lakes, beautiful forests and wonderful places nearby. The town is the main centre of transport, industry, agriculture and commerce in the south of St. Petersburg. It has a University (KGU of Kirill and Mefodiy), three Institutes of Technical Education, and six schools (one of the schools is very big and new). There are road and rail links with Saint-Petersburg, Pskov and Novgorod. I like this town very much and I spend a lot of time there, because my country-house is situated not far from it. If you have never been to Luga, please, go there and you'll enjoy it.
