|Bashkortostan . Russia
Ufa, the capital of the Autonomous Republic of Bashkortostan, is situated on the western side of the Ural mountain range, at the confluence of the Ufa and Belaya rivers and has 1.1 million inhabitants. The city which had only 265,000 inhabitants in 1956 has grown rapidly due to the important oil industry in the area. The city which merged with its northern neighbour Chernikovsk has a 40 km north-south and a 15 km east-west extension.
