Russian Hill is one of the seven major hills in San Francisco and is located south of Fisherman's Wharf, a busy tourist harbor. It got its name from the Russian cemetery discovered by settlers during the Gold Rush. Old-fashioned colorful luxury houses line the steep hillside, and from the top of the hill you can enjoy beautiful views of the Golden Gate Bridge and the Bay Bridge.
San Francisco is a city of hills on a peninsula facing the Pacific Ocean in northern California. It is well known for the beautiful Golden Gate Bridge spanning the strait and the nostalgic cable cars running up the steep hill. The Financial District, one of the world's leading financial centers, Little Italy and Chinatown, which tell the story of immigration, are just a few of the vibrant attractions of this metropolis.
