Bratsk

; The cascade of hydroelecric powerplants (Hydroelectricity) was built in 1960s–1970s on the Angara River, a project similar to Tennessee Valley Authority in the United States. The powerplants allowed the creation and support of large production facilities, such as the aluminium plant in Bratsk, Ust-Ilimsk, rare-earth mining in Angara basin, and those associated with the timber industry. The price of electricity in Angara basin is the lowest in Russia. But the Angara cascade is not fully finished yet: the Boguchany power plant (Boguchany hydroelectric power station) waits to be finished, and a series of enterprises will be set up. - BTK UIBB Bratsk Airport Bratsk, Irkutsk Oblast, Russia - Yakutsk soon turned into a major starting point for further Russian expeditions eastward, southward and northward.

Vyborg

in 1856 benefited the local economy as it opened the vast waterways of Eastern Finland to the sea. Vyborg was never a major industrial center and lacked large production facilities, but due to its location it served as a focal point of transports of all industries on the Karelian Isthmus, Ladoga Karelia, and southeastern Finland. Following the Russian Revolution of 1917 and the fall of the Russian Empire, Finland declared itself independent. During the Finnish Civil War, Vyborg was in the hands of the Finnish Red Guards (Red Guards (Finland)) until it was captured by the White Guard (White Guard (Finland)) on April 29, 1918. In the inter-war decades, the town, then officially known as '''Viipuri''', was the second biggest town in Finland and the seat of Viipuri Province. In 1939, Vyborg had some 80,000 inhabitants, including sizable minorities of Swedes (Swedish-speaking population of Finland), Germans, Russians (Russians in Finland), Gypsies (Finnish Kale), Tatars (Finnish Tatars), and Jews (history of the Jews in Finland). During this time, Alvar Aalto built the Vyborg Library—a masterpiece of modern architecture. During the Winter War between the Soviet Union and Finland in 1939–1940, over seventy thousand people were evacuated from Vyborg to western Finland. The Winter War was concluded by the Moscow Peace Treaty, which stipulated the transfer of Vyborg and the whole Karelian Isthmus—emptied of their residents—to Soviet control, where it was incorporated into the Karelo-Finnish Soviet Socialist Republic on March 31, 1940. As the town was still held by the Finns, the remaining Finnish population, some ten thousand people, had to be evacuated in haste before the handover. Thus, practically the whole population of Finnish Vyborg was resettled elsewhere in Finland. The town became the administrative center of Vyborgsky District (Vyborgsky District, Leningrad Oblast). The evacuees from Finnish Karelia (Karelia (historical province of Finland)) came to be a vociferous political force and their wish to return to their homes was an important motive when Finland sought support from Nazi Germany against the Soviet threat. As a result, Finland and Nazi Germany fought on the same side in the Continuation War. On August 29, 1941, Vyborg was recaptured by Finnish troops and, soon after, the Government of Finland formally annexed it along with the other areas lost in the Moscow Peace Treaty. At first, the Finnish Army did not allow civilians into the town. Of the 6,287 buildings, 3,807 had been destroyed. The first civilians started to arrive at the end of September and by the end of the year Vyborg had a population of about 9,700. By 1942, it had risen to 16,000. About 70% of the evacuees from Finnish Karelia returned after the re-conquest to rebuild their looted homes, but were again evacuated after the Red Army's Vyborg–Petrozavodsk Offensive, timed to coincide with the Battle of Normandy (Operation Overlord). By the time of the Soviet offensive, the town had a population of nearly 28,000. The town was evacuated by June 19 and the defense of Vyborg was entrusted to the 20th Brigade (20th Brigade (Continuation War)). The town fell to the Red Army on June 20, 1944, but the Finns managed to halt the Soviet offensive at the Battle of Tali-Ihantala—the largest battle fought by any of the Nordic countries—in Viipuri rural municipality which surrounded the town. The town was seriously damaged, with many historic buildings, including the Vyborg Cathedral, destroyed. In the subsequent Moscow Armistice of September 19, 1944, Finland returned to the borders set by the Moscow Peace Treaty and ceded more land than the treaty originally demanded. In the 1947 Paris Peace treaties (Paris Peace Treaties, 1947), Finland relinquished all claims to Viipuri Vyborg. After the Winter War, Leningrad Oblast wanted to incorporate the area of Vyborg, but it took until November 1944 for it to be finally transferred from the Karelo-Finnish SSR. During the Soviet era, the town was settled by people from all over the Soviet Union. The naval air bases of Pribilovo (Pribilovo (air base)) and Veshchevo were built nearby. Administrative and municipal status Within the framework of administrative divisions (subdivisions of Russia#Administrative divisions), Vyborg serves as the administrative center of Vyborgsky District (Vyborgsky District, Leningrad Oblast). Oblast Law #32-oz As an administrative division, it is incorporated within Vyborgsky District as '''Vyborgskoye Settlement Municipal Formation (Town of district significance)'''. As a municipal division (subdivisions of Russia#Municipal divisions), Vyborgoye Settlement Municipal Formation is incorporated within Vyborgy Municipal District as '''Vyborgoye Urban Settlement'''. Law #17-oz Climate Similar to many other areas along the Baltic Sea, Vyborg has a humid continental climate wikipedia:Vyborg commons:Category:Vyborg


Valencia

thumb left Interior of the Columbus Market ''(Mercat de Colom)'' In the early 20th century Valencia was an industrialized city. The silk industry had disappeared, but there was a large production of hides and skins, wood, metals and foodstuffs, this last with substantial exports, particularly of wine and citrus. Small businesses predominated, but with the rapid mechanization of industry larger companies were being formed. The best expression of this dynamic was in the regional exhibitions
