Nowadays the Royal Gate not only tells us about the emergence of Koenigsberg-Kaliningrad and its development at the crossroads, it is a museum with open exhibitions; solemn book presentations and wedding ceremonies are held there, and the Kaliningrad Consular Corps has chosen the Royal Gate as a venue for the annual celebration of the Diplomats Day.

The Fort titled King Friedrich Wilhelm III was built in late XIX century as part of the Koenigsberg defensive ring.

Being a part of the Second Defensive Rampart, surrounding the city in a continuous 15-kilometer ring, the gate witnessed the passage of various historical persons.

Fort No. 5 is a powerful defensive structure surrounded by a moat with water, a stone wall and an earthen rampart. It was built in late XIX century and passed its main test in 1945.

Modern Saransk is a rare type of Russian city: it has become comfortable and charming, thanks to the efforts of its residents.

The sweets of the Saransk Lamzur confectionery factory are not sold virtually anywhere outside the republic, which does not mean that their quality is low, but makes such a gift an original one.

National Mordovian dishes are kersez - chopped meat, baked with potatoes, medvezhya lapa(bear paw) - a kind of cutlet of pork, liver, bread and eggs as well as pancakes on millet flour.

Saransk responsibly prepares for the influx of domestic and foreign guests: creates infrastructure virtually from scratch, builds monumental stadiums, renovates historical buildings, breaks down old ugly buildings and constructs something modern in their place.

The Saransk fortress built in 1641 at the confluence of the rivers Insar and Saranka, was almost square-shaped. The Saranka River flowed directly through the territory of the fortress, whereas the fortress was surrounded by an earthen rampart from the outside.

Saransk is the centre of Finno-Ugric culture of Russia. Since 2007 a large festival titled Shumbrat, Finno-Ugria! has been held there.

If you dont have enough time to get acquainted with the surroundings of the city, try to visit at least the Sanaksar Monastery of the Nativity of the Mother of God where Admiral Ushakov is buried.

The town of Zeya is sometimes called little Paris, although it has nothing to do with Paris. It is a usual Far Eastern town: low-rise buildings, disgusting roads, wonderful nature.

An ancient Paleolithic man site named Deering-Yuryakh was discovered on a high mountain near Elanka, on the opposite bank of the Lena River, in September 1982.

The Bezymyannaya fortress battery is one of the oldest fortifications of the Vladivostok Fortress. In 1862 the hill of Bezymyannaya was used to place smoothbore guns and deploy a platoon of mountain artillery. Since that moment the hill has been called Battery.

Tynda, the northernmost and youngest town of the Amur Region, is even called the capital of BAM.

Vladivostok Fortress is a complex of defensive structures built in the city and its surroundings in late XIX-early XX centuries. Today the complex of fortification constructions of the Vladivostok fortress is a monument of federal significance.

Dalnerechensk is the oldest and northernmost town of Primorye, the administrative centre of Dalnerechensky district, located near the border with China.

It is a typical Far Eastern city, extremely poor even by the standards of the Far East. This was not always this way: in the past Partizansk (its name had been Suchan until 1972) flourished.

Spassk-Dalniy is a small town in Primorsky Krai, located on the Kuleshovka River. Trans-Siberian Railway passes through it and divides the town into the western and eastern parts.

The first information about the lead-zinc deposits in Olginsky district around the Tetyukhe River was disclosed in the second half of XIX century, after the annexation of Primorye to Russia. However, according to legends, the development of the Tetyukhinsky ores had been carried out by the tribe named tazs that inhabited Primorye in ancient times, before the arrival of the Chinese.
