Nalchik/Agency Caucasus - Nalchik, the capital city of Kabardino-Balkaria, is ranked as the third most beautifully built-up city of Russia.
Ninety-five cities from 49 republics in the Russian Federation were rated in three groups largely for how beautifully built-up they were, according to information received from the Municipality of Nalchik. The first group included the capital cities of such republics as Kabardino-Balkaria; in the second group were there the cities with a population of over or equal to 100 000; in the third group were there the towns that looked like larger cities because of their populations of up to 100 000.
The cities were voted for their level of adherence to rules to maintain the best possible ecological conditions, for how much greenfield was covered, for the number of new buildings they contained, for the overall conditions of buildings they had, for the number of children's playgrounds as well as of sports grounds they had, and etc.
