Rezh City, Sverdlovsk Oblast School #2

We are from Rezh City, Sverdlovsk Oblast, Russian Federation. Peter the Great founded Rezh in 1773. Our city started with an ironworks, and its name comes from Rezh River. It is known for the nearby mines, where famous tourmalines, topazes, amethysts, corundums, and other precious gemstones were found. Also, the Rezh region is the birthplace of Danila Zverev, real-life prototype of “Master Danila,” a well-known Russian folk-tale character.
