This area is now considered the historical center and is known as the "Old Town".

Also, in the east Sterlitamak borders with the Belaya River, which forms the boundary between Sterlitamaksky and Ishimbaysky Districts. In the south, near the heavy machinery factory, the city is bordered by the Olkhovka River, which is also an influx of the Ashkadar.Sterlitamak is in Republic of Bashkortostan.
