Apart from rare historical places, Rzhev looks like an ordinary Soviet town lost on the map.


Tver is almost like Bologoe, a stop between Moscow and St. Petersburg. According to the map, it is located closer to Moscow, and its soul tends to Petersburg.


A visit to the estate possible by prior request. Adults and children are taught horse-riding lessons at the Stable Yard.


The village of Mermeriny immediately attracts attention by its name sounding like some fabulous womans name. At least, for those who have never heard about Mermeriny before. For those who have been here Mermeriny is primarily the fur farm and fur-coats factory.


The guests of Kologerasa Bay on Moneron Island are usually shown the remnants of Japanese irrigation system supplying rice fields during the Japanese reign over the island. But the history of the name of the bay is perhaps more interesting than the Japanese engineering structures...


The town of Sevsk is one of the oldest in the Bryansk region. It was first mentioned in chronicles in 1146. Then it was a part of the Chernigov-Seversk land.


The views of the Kronotskoye Lake strikingly remind of classic Japanese landscapes: mountains and waters, regular volcanic cones over wide waves. In addition to the natural unique character, the beauty of the lake views is a compelling reason to come here.


The Chegemskoe Gorge is located in the middle part of Kabardino-Balkaria and divides the mountain zone of the republic into two parts, the northern one and the southern one. The Chegem River flows through the gorge. There is a place of stunning beauty here the wall of Su-Auzu Waterfalls (their name means water throat).


Ust-Buotama breeding nursery area welcomes visitors with a sign with the strict reminder: Wood buffaloes are of huge state value.


Kabardino-Balkaria is a small republic, not only on the All-Russian national scale, but also by the standards of the Greater Caucasus: it makes up only 3% of its territory. However, the size definitely does not matter here, and a single fact would be enough for the tourism advertising of Kabardino-Balkaria: the highest peak in Europe and six of the eight Caucasian mountains over five thousand meters high are located on its territory.


The mysterious ancient Balkarian village of El-Tyubyu is the focus of the entire history of Balkaria. An ancient watchtower, the remnants of Greek temples and anomalous phenomena attract adventurers and connoisseurs to this place.


Only part of the wall remained from the Stavropol fortress, besides, one fragment was recreated. The Fortress Hill is the very heart of Stavropol. Today it is a square with various monuments, from the historical Kazan Cathedral to the extremely expressive walking cavalryman of Budyonnys army.


The Elbrus region is a mountainous region of Russia, a real paradise for ski fans or adventurers.


Stavropol is traditionally called the Gates of the Caucasus, although nowadays this title is more suitable for any of the resorts in Mineralnye Vody.


Elbrus is the highest mountain in Russia. Its western peak has a height of 5642 m, eastern one - 5621 m. Elbrus is a cone of a dead volcano on a high pedestal of granite and schists. The Cheget Mountain is located close to Elbrus and has a height of 3650 m. Cheget offers beautiful views of the Baksanskoe Gorge, the village of Terskol, to Elbrus on one side and to Dongus-Orun, Kogutai and Nakra - on the other side.


The sweet name Medovye Vodopady (Honey Waterfalls) attracts visitors at any time of the year - this place is included into the list of the main tour objects of the Caucasian Mineralnye Vody.


Vast expanse, huge sky and white patches of salt lakes make up the fantastic landscape of sun-scorched steppes of Astrakhan. There are hundreds of lakes, as if pearl beads of different shapes and sizes were scattered across the land. This comparison does not seem fanciful, if you remember that pure crystalline salt has been valued since ancient times almost like pearls. The largest of the pearls is the Baskunchak Lake.


Vyazma stays on the old Smolensk road, and its location determines its history history of another Russian town having gone through all wars with the maximum damage to it and the inhabitants.


The Khvalynsky National Park has existed since 1994, when the total protected area of 25 thousand hectares of forest embraced the three forest districts in the vicinity of Khvalynsk. This is a very beautiful area and the most elevated place in Saratov Oblast: Khvalynskie mountains, hills and hollows, chalk outcrops on the slopes, forests, a wide variety of plants, animals, birds and, of course, the Volga River.


What can be special in a green town at a hundred kilometers distance from the capital of the Don region, on the left bank of the Don River, with a population of less than 30 thousand people? However, its unusual name immediately attracts attention. According to one version, the word with Turkic roots means something like strong black fortress.
