The country where Grozny is located is the Russian Federation, or, to be more precise, the North Caucasian Republic of Chechnya, which is part of the Russian Federation. The city, which was previously called the village of Groznaya, stretches on the banks of the Sunzha River, which flows through the southern territories of Russia and is a tributary of the more full-flowing Terek.
The city is located in a temperate continental zone with rather mild and warm winters, as well as long and hot summers. But, for example, unlike the mountainous settlements of the Krasnodar Territory, Grozny is not protected from blowing winds, which is why the winter temperature on its territory can drop to minus 20 ° C. The summer heat is often intensified by the prolonged lack of precipitation, which is also characteristic of the area.
Located near the Caucasus Mountains, the capital city of Chechnya is also territorially divided into four districts - Zavodskoy, Leninsky, Oktyabrsky and Staropromyslovsky. Moreover, each of them, in turn, is further divided into five additional territorial-administrative districts (or TAO for short). There are 20 such TAOs in Grozny.
