Vladikavkaz, Ossetia, Russia

I'm trying to collect a viewcard of all different regions of Russia. I still have a number of regions missing but I'm slowly getting there. :)

This view is from Vladikavkaz, the capital city of the Republic of North Ossetia–Alania in southern Russia. It is located in the southeast of the republic at the foothills of the Caucasus Mountains, situated on the Terek River. Population: 311,635 (2010 Census preliminary results). Vladikavkaz is one of the most populous cities in the North Caucasus. The city is an industrial and transportation center. Manufactures include processed zinc and lead, machinery, chemicals, clothing, and food products.

On this card you can see River Terek embankment and the Issa Pliev monument (the Hero of the USSR).
