With the help of our friend Rustem, we were able to secure an apartment for our time here in Ufa. It is great!! Very modern, clean and close to the city center (for shopping/grocery shopping). We are also just about 1 mile or so from the university. The living space is opposite the kitchen/dining and is about the same size. 2 bedrooms and a bath round out our living space. Interesting is that there are 2 refrigerators/freezers, one on either side of the oven.
