Stavropol is an episcopal see of the Greek Orthodox Church.
The area of Russia in which Stavropol resides is very mountainous, placing the city in the midst of the Caucasus mountain range.
Stavropol's economy focuses on production of automobiles, furniture, and construction equipment and materials. The city relies on air, rail, and highway connections to other Russian cities. The city also has a natural gas pipeline that ends in Moscow.
In 1999, Stavropol had a population of 343,500. A number of these are recent arrivals escaping instability at the Russian border.
