Day tripping on the old Russian towns
 
Reading the reports in the section «Ride Reports» about travel some people in <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 /><st1:country-region w:st="on">Russia</st1:country-region>, I often see your comments, that <st1:country-region w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">Russia</st1:place></st1:country-region> for you is like a dark spot, and you might be interested to visit here. So I want to publish the pictures of our day tripping to Russian towns.

Usually, we go with our friends on the weekend trip to an old Russian town, which preserved the unique historical and cultural monuments in <st1:place w:st="on"><st1:country-region w:st="on">Russia</st1:country-region></st1:place>. This is usually not more than <st1:metricconverter w:st="on" productid="300 km">300 km</st1:metricconverter>. from <st1:city w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">Moscow</st1:place></st1:city> in one end. Sometimes we spend the night in a hotel, sometimes returning to <st1:city w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">Moscow</st1:place></st1:city>. So, let's begin.

<?xml:namespace prefix = o /><o:p></o:p>

<o:p></o:p>
<st1:City w:st="on"><st1:City w:st="on">Rostov</st1:City> or <st1:City w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">Rostov</st1:place></st1:City> the Great<o:p></o:p>
</st1:City>

<st1:city w:st="on">Rostov</st1:city> - one of the oldest towns in <st1:country-region w:st="on">Russia</st1:country-region>, located on the shores of <st1:placetype w:st="on">Lake</st1:placetype> <st1:placename w:st="on">Nero</st1:placename>, in <st1:metricconverter w:st="on" productid="202 kilometers">202 kilometers</st1:metricconverter> from <st1:place w:st="on"><st1:city w:st="on">Moscow</st1:city></st1:place>. The first mention of the city - in 862 yr.
On the western outskirts of the town
, on the shores of <st1:place w:st="on"><st1:placetype w:st="on">Lake</st1:placetype> <st1:placename w:st="on">Nero</st1:placename></st1:place>, is male Spaso-Yakovlevsky Monastery. Since the monastery acting - all the women at the entrance must wear skirts and hats (all of which can be taken at the entrance).

The residence was built as a citadel, though by then the era of construction of the Kremlin is the law and the walls of the Rostov Kremlin were decorative rather than a defensive function. In the Rostov Kremlin, was made a very famous Soviet comedy movie "Ivan Vasilyevich Changes His Profession."<o:p></o:p>

Really good pictures here and in the other ride reports. I had not seen those reports so glad you had links to them.

I want to visit Moscow one day. It takes a long time to get there from the east coast of the USA though. Maybe some day........

I was on east coast of the USA in 1994 and in 1995, but by airplane, and it's no difficult :D
You need to see Moscow ones!

Very interesting story connected with this church.
After the death of the famous russian king Ivan the Terrible in 1584, his younger son Dmitry was sent with his mother to Uglich, and May 15, 1591 an eight-year boy was found dead with cut
throat in the palace courtyard. The locals have decided that it made 2 public servant and killed them and destroyed a police building. For this, new king ordered the execution about 200 people and a large bell, which summoned the citizens to revolt. <st1:City w:st="on">Bell</st1:City> cut tongue and ear, and deported to Siberia (in the old daysmost of criminals deported to <st1:place w:st="on">Siberia</st1:place>). Prince's mother forcibly took the veil.
On the spot death of prince Dmitry was initially built a wooden chapel, and in 1692 built the existing stone church. It's called "<st1:place w:st="on"><st1:PlaceType w:st="on">Church</st1:PlaceType> of <st1:PlaceName w:st="on">Prince Dmitry</st1:PlaceName></st1:place> on the Blood."<o:p></o:p>
