Magas (“Sun City” from the Ingush language) is a city in southern Russia, the capital of Ingushetia Republic. It is the smallest and youngest administrative center in Russia.

Magas was founded by Ruslan Aushev, the president of Ingushetia from March 1993 to December 2001, in February 23, 1994.

April 15, 1994, the Russian President Boris Yeltsin signed a decree #778 “On the construction of the capital of the Republic of Ingushetia”. This day is celebrated as the “Day of the city of Magas.”

It occupies the place, where there was an ancient town with the same name in the past. It is for the first time since Peter the Great that a town is intentionally built as the capital of the region.

Magas is located 4 km southeast of Nazran, less than 500 meters from the border of Ingushetia and North Ossetia, 6-8 meters above the Sunzha River and 520-650 meters above sea level. From here you can see a picturesque silhouette of Nazran.

Nazran railway station is located about 8 km from the city, the distance to the airport “Magas” - 33 km. The federal highway “Caucasus” passes near Magas. Urban public transport was launched in early 2015 and operates daily from 7 am to 10 pm.

The center is formed mainly by the government buildings. To the east of them, you can find the main street of Magas, where various administrative, business, and trade centers are located. The main building of Ingush State University is located in the city.
