The next morning we decided to jump on the motorcycle and enjoy the good weather! First stop Staritsa.

Its an old town mainly known for its monastary that is 900 years old!


Another couple of churches


That is Okcana off to the left talking to someone that was interested in the bike.


Staritsa was occupied for about 3 months in 1941/1942. Again alot of what was there was destoryed as the Nazis left. There was some serious fighting that took place between this city and the next one Rzhev.
