Brief overview of Arkhangelsk

First of all, I’d like to tell you something about the city I live in. It is called Arkhangelsk and named after Archangel Michael. The city stands on the bank of the river Northern Dvina and it is not very far from the White Sea. The city was founded in the year of 1584 and ever since then it was one of the major Russian sea ports. The city is not very large, it’s population is about 400 000 people.
Below is the photo of Arkhangelsk at winter from the height of a bird flight.

I have been in your city last summer. But I think next time I have to visit in winter. As I am Turkish, this picture is somewhere like outer space for me :)

Yes you may be right. Friends in Arkhangelsk, tell that this year it is a relativly warm winter.
But still too cold for me:)
