After observing all these changes in the city, I realized that the satisfaction of local residents was divided. I talked with about 30 people, 60% of them were happy and proud that the city received such an important event. For them Ufa won new hotels, restaurants, squares and places of entertainment. The other 40% are not so satisfied. They claim that the city only improved the area was interested for the event organizers, and the rest of the districts will continue precarious as before, without public roads, good hospitals, schools etc.

PRIBELSKY: COUNTRYSIDE IN UFA, RUSSIA!

Wednesday, July 15th, 2015

Today I visited a part of Russia that I never expected that exist, but I loved it. From the center of Ufa one hour drive is located the Pribelsky’s Countryside. With 5.000 population, Ufa’s neighborhood still keeping the roots of agricultural country life. The local people work with agricultural, while others increase the herd of cows to help the biggest Milk Factory in the region. By the way, on my arrival I was greeted by a group of cows. The children still have a luck to play in the nature. There are many forest with trees, lakes and animals. The River Belaya also helps to attract fishers from other neighboring cities. Many people who live in Ufa choose Priblesky to spend the weekend. I think during the last days I was the unique tourist lost in the neighborhood. Lucky for me, I could take my girlfriend to enjoy the smell of wet earth, pick fruit directly from the foot, walking without shoes and play with animals. I want to thank our friend Ramill, who kindly borrow us his boat to cross the river. A crossing the other side of the river…

there is a forest where people go to pick mushroom. Many houses from Pribelsky keep the history of the Second World War. The grandfather of my fiance Gidyat Gizatullin he participated in the Second World War. After four years of war Gidyat returned home alive to his family and to tell the stories of the battles between the Soviet Union and Germany of Adolf Hitler. Beyond hearing from Miss Rosa the stories about the second war, I had also the opportunity to sleep in a house built in 1951 by the German soldiers. The daughter of Gidyat, Rosa Gizatullina told me that after the end of the Second World War in 1945 the German soldiers captured by the Russian Army had to work to pay for the “victory” of Soviet Union. From 1946 until 1956 Pribelsky served as a labor camp for Germans Captives. One of the tasks was build houses and schools. The house showed by the photo below is one of that. The Germans built also two factories in Pribelsky, one of sugar and other of milk. Both of the factories works until now.
