Hello, dear Kitty! In your previous letter you asked me about my home town. I live in Chelyabinsk, it is a city and the administrative center of Chelyabinsk Oblast, too.

It was founded in the middle of 18th century, when Colonel Alexey Tevkelev built the fortress of Chelyaba to protect the surrounding trade routes from possible attacks by Bashkir outlaws. In 1787 Chelyabinsk was granted town status and its current name.  

Now there are approximately 1 200 000 people in Chelyabinsk. It’s fairly big, you know! Also there are over a dozen universities in Chelyabinsk, so we have a lot of students coming from different places of Russia. The oldest university, Chelyabinsk State Agroengineering Academy, was founded in 1930.

Chelyabinsk is one of the major industrial centers of Russia. It’s not the best place because the environment is heavily affected by all the plants. Heavy industry takes significant part of it, especially metallurgy and military machinery. But the latter is classified, so I cannot really speak about it, sorry about that!

It’s my home town, and I still like it a lot. Last year we had this meteor. It was amazing and horrifying at the same time, because we didn’t know what to think. Some thought it was the beginning of a nuclear war, the others that it was an falling UFO. But after this incident Chelyabinsk became popular around the world, so you may have well heard of it.

That was all for today, I need to get back to my English homework.
Wait, I have just done it!

Please drop me a line and tell about your home town.
Your friend,
Куутя
