I was born in a wonderful corner of Russia, Nizhny Tagil. Have you ever heard about it? I think most of you will give a negative answer. So I invite you to my native place.

Nizhny Tagil is a small town built by the Demidovs, outstanding Russian manufacturers. It has a population of 362 thousand people. It was founded in 1722 by Nikita Demidov.

The main mountain in Nizhny Tagil is Lisya Mountain. This mountain with a watch-tower on its top is a symbol of the city. It is surrounded by the pond, where you can see a lot of fishermen in any season. Another mountain, Medved-Kamen, is located in the northern part of the city and is 100 meters high.

Nizhny Tagil is the town of metallurgists. A metallurgist is one of the most popular and main professions in our town. Nizhny Tagil is a large industrial center of the Middle Urals.The Nizhny Tagil Integrated Iron – and – Steel works is a leading Russian steel company.

Our city is also culture and educational centre. There are a lot of high schools, specialized educational establishments, vocational schools and secondary schools in our town.

The city’s old traditions have been enriched by the traditions of various events. Nizhny Tagil is one of centers of exhibition activity in the Middle Urals. Nizhny Tagil Institute of Metals Testing was the host of the international exhibitions such as Ural Expo Arms.

But our town has also a lot of problems. Pollution is one of the most serious troble in our life. Our Integrated Iron – and – Steel works provides harmful substances into the air. We can see smog over the town, trees and houses are often coverd with soot and dirt. Sometimes it is hard to breath. Our water is also polluted with factory waste. Certainly there are a lot of people who straggle against pollution. I hope that in the future we will find new ways to keep pollution under constant control.
