Is there a Russian town for every letter of the English alphabet? I invite you to join me on the pointless quest to answer this. It will get complicated when we get to letters which don't have analogues in the Russian (cyrillic) alphabet, but basically we go through in order, suggesting one town with each post, and giving a bit of information if you like. I'll start;

A is for Abakan

Abakan is a small city in The Republic of Khakassia, in Siberia. I once spent a pleasant afternoon there waiting for a train.

Your turn;
