    This Ryazan suburb (20 kms from the town)is usually called Ryazan Switzerland. Very beautiful place naturewise. It serves as summer weekend runaway place for locals.
    It reminded me of some shores in the Baltic states.
    Driving towards Solochi from Ryazan you 1st cross Oka river and then dive into thick pine forest. The nature there is a combination of pine trees, golden sand and plain waters of Oka river.
    There is acting nunnery (right on the main square), which is now being rebult from almost ruins. It's opened for visitor but usually during services.
