Russia has some beautiful sites, and sights.

Here is a beautiful blog on just one area of Russia.




The expected.

My current home of Yaroslavl is part of Russia’s Golden Ring, a cluster of beautiful and ancient towns that remain a point of pride for Russians.  Just two years ago, Yaroslavl celebrated its 1,000th birthday.  She looks pretty darn good for her age (though I think she’s had some work done).

As expected, the city is full of oh-so-Russian orthodox churches with colorful onion domes peeking out over the skyline everywhere you look.

The center of the old city comes to a point at the “strelka”, at the confluence of two rivers:  the Volga and the Kotorosl’.  There, you can find gardens, fountains, monuments, and of course a beautiful view of the water.

The churches and fountains and parks are magnificent, of course, but also easy to find with a Google search of Yaroslavl.  What interests me more is what falls between the sight-seeing cracks.

The unexpected.
