Karabash is notorious as the most polluted town in the world. It is said that this definition belongs to the UNESCO Commission; perhaps, this is just a phantasy of journalists. But the fact remains that the environmental situation in the town is terrifying.


The town is rightly considered the centre of the Volga region and the centre of the Russian culture in Chuvashia.


This town was initially called Tanalyk in the name of the eponymous river and was literally razed to the ground several years after it had appeared.


The village of Voznesenka strikes the approaching travelers immediately and from a long distance: a huge seven-headed stone Cathedral of the Byzantine style stands in the Bashkir province, among the nearly pristine nature - the mountains, the valley, the lake.


Mineral resources were found on this land before the appearance of any settlements. Tanalykovo-Baymak was founded in 1748 as the ore base of Kananikolsky and Preobrazhensky copper-smelting plants.


The city was founded to protect the Russian borders after the conquest of Kazan by Ivan the Terrible.


It is not easy to reach Voznesenka: you may choose only a bus from Uchalov as a public transport.


It is assumed that the settlement on the site of Voznesenka village arose in 1755 when in the Southern Urals the search for and development of copper ore began.


At first glance, Kimry is not much different from any other neglected provincial town with a rich history: the entire town is now represented by the remnants of the old buildings craving for capital repairs. Shabby walls create an absurd contrast with bright signs and billboards towering above them local traders are trying to adapt the architectural junk.


In XVIII century the Novgorod Governor-General Yakov Efimovich Sivers wrote to Catherine II that Ostashkov was the second Venice. The Russian Venice is situated on a peninsula cut into the clear blue waters of the Seliger Lake.


Vesyegonsk fits the description of a provincial town with a scent of indestructible agricultural past.


The progenitor of Ostashkov was Klichen, a borderline town on the outskirts of Moscow principality it was first mentioned in the message of the Lithuanian Grand Duke Algirdas to the Patriarch Philotheus in 1371.


There is a feeling that the town stands right on the water.


Vyshny Volochyok is famous for its canals that are a perfect fit to the picturesque nature of the Valdai Hills.


The air in Vesyegonsk is truly magical, especially on the coast of Rybinka. The woods can boast an abundance of mushrooms and berries, as well as many animals, the waters of the bay and the many local rivers are rich in fish.


The town of Nelidovo in Tver Oblast grew out of a railway station in the ancient village of Yotkino (or Iotkino). Yotkino has been known since XV century, and the working settlement of Nelidovo received a status of town after the World War II, in 1949.



Vyshny Volochyok is famous for its canals which perfectly mix with the picturesque nature of the Valdai Hills.


The settlement once located on the site of the present Kalyazin was mentioned in chronicles in XII century.


The town on the banks of the Ivankovo water reservoir is famous for the richest museum of pottery.
