Only by the road signs and brand local billboards Smile, you're in Verkhnyaya Salda, a car-driver traveling along the P-353 road can determine that he is moving in the heart of the global titanium metallurgy.


The biggest Russian enterprise for the production of mining equipment, Kopeisk Machine-Building Plant is located here. The plant, by the way, is one of the main tourist attractions of the city.


It is visible by the naked eye that the place where the Kamenka River flows into Iset is rich in iron ore: distinctive red streaks can be seen everywhere on the nearby rocks. At the end of XVII century the Abbot of the Dolmatovsky Monastery decided to take advantage of this feature of the local geology and requested this land from the treasury.


The town has a monument to Parasha-the Siberian girl. It is said that the girl walked on foot from Ishim to Moscow to beg forgiveness of Nicholas II for her father who was exiled to Siberia.


Every year in March the town hosts a large theatre Ishim Theatrical Games of the Young People.


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.
