And The Church of the Ascension, built in 1532, stands on the high bank of the Moskva River.  It is one of the first churches of tent-like variety in Russia. In 1994, along with the Moscow Kremlin and Red Square, the church was included in the UNESCO World Heritage List.

Nizhny Novgorod Kremlin and the Christmas Church.

In the morning we went to see the Nizhny Novgorod Kremlin – this is the main attraction of the city. The construction of the Kremlin began in the 16th century, the walls of which were supposed to protect the city from the raids of the Tatars. The walls are two kilometers long with 12 towers, previously there were 13. At the moment on the territory of the Kremlin are the authorities, art museum, philharmonic society, eternal fire and other places. From May to November, visitors can walk along the wall of the Kremlin, from «Dmitrievskaya» to the «Zachatskaya» Tower and back. For me, it was the longest route on the walls of the Kremlin in Russia. After dinner, we went to see another sight, the Christmas Church.

Moscow weekend: two great days in Russian capital

This song was very popular in Russia some decades ago and still comes to my mind when I hear something about Moscow. To be honest, that was my first time in the capital of my country, despite the fact that I have already traveled a lot abroad. I decided to visit this megalopolis and form my own opinion because usually people are divided into two groups: haters or fans, there is no neutrality. Well, I can confess that I am now the biggest fan. Let’s start.

Russia to Slovenia by car

This summer we went to Slovenia by our car. The way from Nizhny Novgorod (Russia) to Ribnica (Slovenia) was long, about 4 days, but amazing!  The route ran through Byelorussia, Poland, Austria and Czech Republic. We visited interesting cities and places and fell in love with Poland (I tell you about it later…). You can see it on the map below.

Russian Golden Ring. Suzdal.

Visiting Russian tourists are usually limited to Moscow and St. Petersburg. But I want to tell you about the Golden Ring – a necklace of ancient Russian cities around Moscow.

Real winter? Snowboarding in Urals and just visiting Russia.

Have you ever seen a real winter? With loads of snow and freezing weather, so that you come out of the house and in 5 minutes return with red cheeks and nose? Welcome to the area of Russian mountains – city called Perm.

Volgograd- unique historical city of Russia

Volgograd- unique historical city of Russia Today I want to tell you about an amazing city of Russia, called Volgograd. Volgograd  became famous and historical value because of the Battle of Stalingrad in Second World War. So it is one of the biggest historical city in Russia located in the South-East European part of Russia.  And now I want to show you this city with his spirit of patriotism.

Kamchatka: Prepare Yourselves for Authentic Russia

Kamchatka is one of the places that are worth to be called  the edge of the earth. And it’s one of the most authentic places in Russia. Wild virgin nature, a combination of different climate zones, active volcanos, geysers, hospitality of the locals – all this makes it one of the best attractions not only in Russia but in the world. Besides, it’s the unique place where you can face to the most famous stereotypes about Russia (vodka, caviar, bears)

Zelenogradsk: the best resort on the Baltic Sea

I would like to start my first article about the place I was born, about the place where dreams come true and crumble – Zelenogradsk. Is it possible to get by chance in this city? If you are not from Russia or Germany (Zelenogradsk was a German city until 1946), then most likely not. When you are planning a trip to the most western part of Russia called Kaliningrad region, you will choose the main city of it with lots of tourist and historical attractions – Kaliningrad.  If you search in google about Kaliningrad region, the first thing that you get in your eyes is that the region accounts for 80% of the world’s amber reserves. Amber, among the people just a sun-stone, it is a hardened gum of the oldest coniferous trees. It is also likely that you will find information that Kaliningrad region, or rather, Kaliningrad, has preserved the spirit of wartime. There are many German homes, where every corner steeped in history. So we can talk endlessly about Kaliningrad. But this is just a centre of the region, where we collected from the whole region amazing things: amber, history, photographs of the sea, a special atmosphere and packed it all in decorative boxes-museums, memorials, monuments, Europeanized streets for tourists and so on. In case you want to know where wonders are born, where you can settle and not leaving your room to enjoy the best sunsets, which are followed and admired by even the most sophisticated travellers, where you can walk along the coast of a sea to collect a whole handful of sun-stone. I can give you an answer – Zelenogradsk. The city is located on the coast of the Baltic Sea only twenty-four kilometres north-west of Kaliningrad. In 1999 Zelenogradsk is recognized as a resort of federal importance, specializing in balneotherapy. And indeed, the city enjoys the status of a health resort, a place for ill patients with bronchopulmonary diseases and problems associated with joints. Mud baths, mineral water, clean sea air full of iodine do its magic thing.

Sviyazhsk: unhappy reality of the magic Island.

Surely, almost all foreign travelers can say that Russia is well-known as a country of severe winters and dense forests. But this is the common opinion. What about discovering some new sides of Russia? I would like to tell you about a place, which is not crowded with tourists for ages, like Moscow or Saint-Petersburg. The story will be about Sviyazhsk, a town situated on the river Volga and permeated with the aesthetic cultural atmosphere.

Saint-Petersburg: walking the streets like a local

Saint-Petersburg is the most “European” city of Russia and also the one that was named the best tourist destination in Europe twice. I myself am particularly glad to know that, working as a tour guide. But this time I don’t want to tell you about “tourist” stuff, there is plenty of info about that around. I would like you to see where the locals hang out. As “the city of the crazy” we have pretty much anything you would like to visit. So, let’s start with the most important things.

Three perfect weeks in Saint Petersburg

My first long-awaited trip to Russia took place in a graceful city of Peter the Great, second-largest Russian city. It is a city of rich history and world-class cultural heritage. I chose the most amazing time for visiting Saint Petersburg, as well as the most crowded by tourists, unfortunately. It is a time of the White Nights: long days, short white nights, series of cultural performances beginning with opera and ballet at Mariinsky Theater, ending with pop concerts at the Palace Square.

The best places in Russia: magic of the Moscow metro

One of the best places in Russia for tourists  is Moscow. And one of the most interesting places of our capital is the Moscow metro. When the revolution took place in Russia, the main idea was that everything in our country now belongs to the people. And if before the palaces belonged to the aristocracy, now the people must have their own palaces. Therefore, the metro stations of the capital became palaces for all the residents and guests of the city, all the passengers of the Moscow metro. And I must say that this plan was quite successful. There are special excursions for tourists in the Moscow metro. Let’s do our walking in Moscow and also make such a tour. And it will cost us 50 rubles ($0.8). This the price of a ticket in the Moscow metro, regardless of the number of stops and transfer from one line to another.

Kamchatka: 7 Reasons to fly to the end of the world

Kamchatka is a peninsula in the Far-eastern Russia, right across the Pacific Ocean from Alaska, not far from Japan. It’s also the land of fire-breathing mountains, pure ice-cold water springs, hot thermal bathing pools, wild animals and pristine, untouched nature. If you wish to feel connected to the world around you and experience nature at its purest, Kamchatka is the place to go. Although travelling to this remote place can be rather expensive, here are at least 7 reasons why spending your vacation in Kamchatka can become the experience of a lifetime:
