For the county, see Pechora (county).

Pechora (Finn. Pettora, Russ. Печора) is a mid-sized city in Uralica. It was annexed to the Uralic nation in the early morning hours of 17 July 2008. It sits roughly halfway between Ukhta and Inta (currently outside Uralica) and almost exactly halfway between Syktyvkar and Vorkuta, and therefore it was an important location for the Vorkuta Or Bust movement. Since it is nearing the treeline, the industrial output is almost exclusively to do with mining, however, there is also a small tech-producing industry, although it lacks the same potential as Uralica's proper cities because of its lesser size. It lies roughly 60 miles west of Mount Narodnaya in the Ural Mountains, on the Pechora River, which was declared fully navigable in September 2009 after a second cleanup effort started by Jarkko Salomäki, after the first one was dashed by the War of the Coalition.

Culture[edit | edit source]

As with many of the northern settlements of Uralica, Pechora has a very large population of Komi (predominantly Komi/Zyrian-speaking) and Nenets, with some Russians, Finns, and various Saami groups living there as well. Architecture is largely modern, with "just a hint of indigenous influence" according to one Planet Bob tourism magazine.

Pechora has all the cultural services mandated of Uralican cities. Music, like with all Uralican settlements, is an integral part of society, and there are five youth music schools in the area.

There are also four museums - one dedicated to municipal history, one dedicated to youth arts (visual art, writing, music, drama, et al.), one dedicated to military history, and one dedicated to railroad working which is still an integral part of northern Uralican life.

The Rusanov Monument along the Pechora River is dedicated to Vladimir Rusanov, an explorer and architect who was important figure in the area's history.
