I can't believe how much everything changed since I left Moscow in 1976.
Still, a lot of good memories.

My uncle use to live in Rostov.
Thanks for sharing the pictures, tovarish

Panda - These ride reports & pictures are fantastic

I am seeing things that are outside the normal travel videos that one might find on DVD.

This is the "real" Russian..

And no better way to see it than on a bike too.

Ryazan.

Ryazan is located 180 kilometers from Moscow.
Originally was the name of the central town of Ryazan principality, located 50 km south-east from the modern Ryazan on the river Oka. After the defeat of this town an army of Batu Khan (1237), the capital of the principality has been moved up along the Oka River in the town of Pereslavl-Ryazan, founded in 1095. Since 1777 the city was renamed to Ryazan.
Ryazan Kremlin is interesting not only for it`s buildings, but the fact that there are no fortified walls - instead it preserved a deep ditch.






























Interesting fact: in the years 1960-1980 Ryazan stores not sold sausages and meat products. Ryazanians rode on trains to Moscow to buy sausages. Very often it was the product of the Ryazan meat factory! Trains Moscow - Ryazan called "sausage." The same can be said about many towns of Russia.
In Ryazan, located Ryazan Higher Airborne Command School and the Airborne Museum, but the museum was closed for repairs.














Fire department.




Graffiti.




Svjato-Ioanno-Bogoslovskiy mail Monastery (St. John the Theologian Monastery) is located in the village Poschupovo, 25 km from Ryazan. Monastery founded in the late XII century and only in the middle of XVII century there appeared the first stone buildings (before it was built of wood). During the Soviet era, in 1930 all the monks were arrested, and in the monastic buildings at various times housed a colony for juvenile delinquents, school of mechanization, the police. In 1988 the monastery was returned back to the church and it started to recover.

















Uspenskiy Cathedral (Cathedral of the Assumption ), in Soviet times was used as a garage for equipment! Now it is almost restored, look how fantastically beautiful faience interior, it's created by modern masters.











At the entrance to the monastery, we met a pilgrim from the Ukraine and he gave us pickled tomatoes. Mmmm, delicious!
