Welcome to Voronezh

Following the development of a navy shipyard (the first in Russia) by Peter the Great in the late 1600s, Voronezh became the largest city in southern Russia and a major hub for agriculture and manufacturing. Between 1928 and 1934, it was the capital of the Central Black Earth Oblast, a huge expanse of western Russia noted for its good soil. Destroyed in WWII, the city is now back on track, with a renovated city centre, new developments sprouting every year and gentrification on its way in the form of hipster cafes and wine bars.
