The mail pedestrian street, which comes to Kremlin. Besides lots of shops and different cafes (as many main streets are full of) You will be able to see different statues. Be attentive - you can find some of them not on the street - but near the windows of 2nd floor of a building or in the yard. It is... More

This is central pedestrian street in the city. There are many restaurants, bars, different monuments (postman with bicycle, photographer, russian famous actor Yevgeniy Yevstigneyev, beautiful lady looking in mirror and others) and suvenir shops. Kremlin and river Volga is very close.

I loved the whole museum which had such an eclectic feel. From court costumes over the centuries, to elaborate state carriages, to armour, to gifts from all the other royal houses of Europe to faberge eggs and incidentals .

This pedestrian street in the heart of this lovely little town has stores, restaurants, market stalls, and people-watching aplenty. We witnessed a group of locals salsa dancing in one of the small parks just off the street - such a great scene!!
