Khabarovsk got its name in honor of the pioneer of Siberia and the Far East - Yerofey Khabarov. It is not the first year that Khabarovsk occupies a leading position in the ranking of well-established cities in Russia. Khabarovsk is located on the Amur River. From Chinese, "Amur" means the river of the black dragon. A beautiful Chinese legend is associated with this name, according to which the good black dragon defeats the evil white one. Amur is the most beautiful and richest river in Russia. With a pool area of 1855 thousand square kilometers, the river takes the 4th place among the rivers of Russia and the 10th place among the rivers in the world. There are around 139 species of fish in the Amur. Along the right bank of the Amur River are the Sikachi-Alyan petroglyphs. These are the monuments of the oldest civilization, peers of the Egyptian pyramids. On large basalt rocks they depict the images of masks, animals, birds, snakes, boats. The pride of Khabarovsk can rightly be called one of the largest bridges in Russia - the «Amur miracle». It is the largest bridge on the Trans-Siberian. In 1908, the Amur Bridge project (like the Eiffel Tower) in Paris was awarded a gold medal at the World's Fair.
