February 24, 2019 18:14


Penza Oblast is conveniently located in the heart of European Russia.

The history of this region is not peaceful, like a cardiogram of a person with a cardiac disease. The land is surprisingly fertile, beautiful, green, as well as rich in all sorts of attractions. Do you want to see Russia at the crossroads of past and present? Then you should definitely visit Penza Oblast.

How to get there

If you risk getting to the administrative centre of the oblast from Moscow, get ready for a long journey. The distance is 635 kilometers. You go from Moscow, towards Bronnitsy along the M5 highway. Then, through the village of Nikitskoe, along the A108 (4) highway, through the village of Nepecino, then along the M5 highway through the village of Mokshan, and 40 kilometers after that the suburbsof Penza will appear. Of course, you can come to the region by train and by bus. Besides, Penza has its own airport.


If you go to Penza Oblast, then you will certainly be interested in painted and chiseled products made of natural wood, Nikolsky crystal glass or Abashevsk clay toys. These things are the true identity of the region!

Penza Oblast is one of the spiritual centres of Russia. People from all over the country come to visit the Tikhvin Holy Monastery and Troitse-Scanov Convent with a cave complex.

In addition, tourists come to the village of Lermontovo to visit the small house of the famous poet and prose writer and visit the “Tarkhany” State Museum-Reserve.

Finally, we cannot but mention the settlement of Zolotarev, where one of the main battles in the history of Russia took place, but we will talk about it later.

The Tikhvin Holy Monastery
: this men’s monastery is located in the village of Vadinsk and consists of four cathedrals: the cathedral of the Tikhvin Icon of the Mother of God, of the icon of the Mother of God “Life-Giving Spring”, of St. Demetrius, the Metropolitan of Rostov and the Church of St. Nicholas the Wonderworker.

The main Church of the Tikhvin Icon of the Mother of God was created on the money of the Moscow merchant Milyakov in 1762. Every Orthodox person will certainly be interested in this monastery, because everything in it has been preserved since the end of the 18th century, from the architecture to icons.
