The city is an important river port. Passenger motor- vessels, cargo boats and barges come to Perm from five seas. The Kama River embankment near the river - boat station is one of the most picturesque spots. The city is surrounded by beautiful pine forests.
The history of Perm is rather interesting. The city owes its existence to V.N.Tatishchev (1686-1750), who is believed to be the founder of Perm. He was a well-know figure of his time, a historian and a geographer. In 1923 Perm became part of the Urals Region, the centre of which was Yekaterinburg.
