It is rich in history, a provincial town in the southwest of Belarus. Of all time (the first mention in 1019) it belonged to various principalities. Unfortunately, I did not have enough time to explore the city better. However, this time was enough to imagine about how the western outpost of Belarus lives.

In general, there was an impression that the whole Belarus is a smooth transition from Russian disorder to European austerity.

And it manifests itself in many cases, ranging from traffic and asphalt pavement to smile staff in stores. And all would be nothing if I would not meet a taxi driver who personally shocked me. Talk about him later, but for now ahead for a walk.

Brest is - the perfect place for travelers by car traveling to Europe. The proximity of the border, the presence of attractions, tourism infrastructure makes the city very attractive for short stops. When we only went there settled for the night, but when we went back, spend the whole day. The first thing that strikes the city is perfectly clean, I would say even licked. I have a hunch that in such a state, it was brought before the World Hockey Championship - 2014 which was held in Minsk. That is so true "front gate" authorities cleaned to a high gloss. I would be glad if I'm wrong, but there's always so clean there.

Travel in the Murmansk region - Teriberka.

1. First, I need to explain why someone calls village as Teriberka, and someone as Lodeinoe.

How, what and why this map fragment will help us to understand. Teriberka itself was founded first, and already in 1930 settlement Lodeinoe appeared, which was later attached to the Teriberka. But the locals still call the left side of Teriberka as Lodeinoe and local school, for example, is called - Lodeynoe secondary school.

2. Let's get started with the "old Teriberka."

Most of the pictures in this post were made by phone.

3. If someone does not believe that in Teriberka everything is bad now, then you need to visit it yourself and see everything on your own. There is no need to go far; there are a lot of the houses like this.

The Nizhny Novgorod region - it is the whole of Russia in miniature, and if the north of the mouth of the Oka, you are in get somewhere near Tver, the fifty kilometers to the south you find yourself closer to Samara and Voronezh:

Grigorovo and Veldemanovo are located about five kilometers away from each other in a straight line, and in 15 kilometers - on asphalt roads, but they refer to different areas – Perevozsk region and Bolshemurashkinsk region respectively. We first went toward to Veldemanovo and Perevozsky District remembered with pretty forged columns at the curb, and obviously made in the same workshop:

The beginning of spring, and I continue the story of the fall trip to the Volga and the Urals, and today is the first part of the report from the city of Orsk.

he beginning of spring, and I continue the story of the fall trip to the Volga and the Urals, and today is the first part of the report from the city of Orsk.

At the entrance to the new city we were met by a stele dedicated to the success of the employment population of Orsk.

Most people who come to Lake Baikal, go first in Irkutsk region - this is the west coast of Lake Baikal. But also its eastern shore has many beautiful and interesting places.

In this article we will talk about the Goryachinsk village in which I have been in the summer of 2013.

Fergana city was founded in 1876 and until 1907 and its name was New Margilan. From 1904 to 1927 it was called Skobelev, in honor of the Russian General M. Skobelev, the conqueror of the Khanate of Kokand and the first head of Fergana Region. Later, Skobelev had become the hero of the Russian-Turkish war of 1877 – 1878 as well. For a long time Fergana city remained as the city of officials and the military. After the Soviet power came, an industry began developing that significantly weakened after the collapse of the Soviet Union. Currently, the city is the administrative center of Ferghana region, its population of 350 thousand people (in the area of 3,350,000 inhabitants).

Trip from Andijan to Fergana takes about an hour away by car. On the way I thought about how difficult it was for me to change money in the bank. One of the passengers commented my words:

- Yes, we have problems with the export of the country's currency, and just with its purchase of the bank. But this has its advantages. Our officials are more difficult to export capital from the Uzbek. And the turnover of money in the country is clearer...
