One of the most interesting topics is the longest city of Russia.

TOP 10: the most extensive settlements of the Russian Federation

In different rankings the data may slightly vary. This is understandable: on the one hand, to measure directly the length of the city is not easy, with another - it is necessary to consider that cities are constantly growing and evolving, pushing your boundaries.

That is why, set a goal to learn about the longest city of Russia, you should choose more new research.

One of the most interesting studies was conducted by the company 2GIS. The criterion of analysis was the length of the route to travel through the city. After the study, staff were able to publish a personal top 10:

  • Moscow (length - km 112,0);
  • Saint Petersburg (102,1 km);
  • Samara (69,3 km);
  • Volgograd (64.5 km);
  • Ufa (54,3 km);
  • Perm (48,8 km);
  • Omsk (48.2 km);
  • Novosibirsk (46.2 km);
  • Ekaterinburg (45.6 km);
  • Kazan (44.5 km).

On the other hand, of course, it is possible to measure the length of the city, just taking two extreme points (North and South or East and West) and drawing through them a straight. If you measure this way, the palm will take two Russian cities: Sochi and Volgograd.

Arises a reasonable question - why just the two cities, especially with such different length (the length of Sochi - 145 km, whereas Volgograd is just 100 km away). The answer is quite simple. The fact that Volgograd is a city of continuous urban development, its districts and neighborhoods are flush with each other. Sochi - it is rather a succession of small seaside resorts, situated one after the other.

It is large territorial gaps provide Sochi as a city, so a greater extent.


Due to its length, Sochi - a city with unique conditions. Coming here, every tourist will find something to your taste. The bustling town and beaches of Riviera and the hidden corners and closed from prying eyes resorts.

First attraction, attracting everyone's attention, are usually the Avenue of Heroes and Pavlov's House, a well-known fact that, during the battle of Stalingrad there for 58 days kept the defense of a group of Soviet soldiers.
