We are a group of students from different schools of the town Zelenogorsk who come to the Center of Education to participate in the international educational project: "Beautiful places - open hearts". We want to tell about our beautiful place - town Zelenogorsk.
Zelenogorsk takes a very special place among the towns that still can not
be found on any Russian maps. Zelenogorsk means “a town in green mountains”.
This modern and comfortable town was built in 1956. Zelenogorsk- is
the youngest town of the Krasnoyarsk region. It is located 180 km east
from Krasnoyarsk (56 N 94 E) and stands on the river Kan. For a population
of seventy thousand people Zelenogorsk offers two cinema halls and a Palace
of Culture, two libraries, ecological and historical museums, art galerry,
two sports centres, chess club, one downhill skiing course and two cross
country tracks wich are illuminated. There are a lot of other cultural
and sport facilities.
The average age of the population is not more than 30 years of age. Along with twelve schools, there is an electromechanical college, three professional tehnical colleges, a branch of the Krasnoyarsk technical university and the Center of Education in our town.
It is impossible to remain indifferent to the Siberian nature which surrounds
the town, the richness of the Taiga pine forests, the crystal purity of
the rapid rivers. All of these are reflected in the style and atmosphere
created on the streets of the town. It is difficult to explain, but it
is easy and pleasant to feel.
The unspoiled nature around the town favours a creative working environment and is also a great source of inspiration wich helps people to fulfil their talents. The people of the town work hard and live an interesting and full life.
