Berezino [Березино] is a large industrialized city located on the eastern coast of South Zagoria, it is located south of the port city of Svetlojarsk. Berezino is a large residential area, whilst also containing one of South Zagoria's key lumber mills, and export ports.
The name derives from "Birch" in Russian.
Found on the most central eastern point of South Zagoria, lies the port town of Berezino. The town is most famous for the soviet song 'Birch' which was during Chernarus' soviet days. After Chernarus broke from the Soviet Union, the song was re-purposed into the 'Chernarussian Anthem' to which is recognized nationally. The town's name originates from the local Birch trees in the region, which are processed and shipped from the lumber mill and dock inside of the town itself.
Despite being a fairly industrialized and having a busy port, the town is still heavily residential consisting of two large residential areas, the northern end containing a local school, and the southern end containing the local hospital.
The town is also a partially famous stop-off point for local sailors and seamen as the town holds 10 pubs and bars within it's area.
A few days prior to the infection, a cargo ship named Rify was brought aground north of the City due to a lighthouse malfunction.
Since the infection a local military checkpoint was established near the local hospital, but has since been abandoned. The town was densely populated so large groups of infected are expected.
