    It is located in a room of the refectory of Suzdal's Kremlin. This restaurant features a traditional Russian menu of bliny (pancakes) with caviar, priced much lower than in Moscow. Try their marinated forest mushrooms - they are beautiful and tasty, whether eaten plain or alongside a serving of cold vodka.

    Aleksandrov Tourist Traps

    This riddle is devoted to Michael and Sonja. They have guessed at once! I often see similar wooden houses on their pages about Russia and they perfectly know, what is it! Probably in Europe it is already difficult to find such small green wooden houses, especially in places of mass congestion of tourists. But in Russia they are still available! For...

  • To/from Murom

    Murom Transportation

    Murom is 5hr from Moscow by train. Most of them arrive in the evening, and one (#112 Moscow-Kazan') in the morning (5am). If you do not mind sleeping for 4 hours, this is the most economic option - you will not need to stay overnight. The train station is far from the town center, you will need to walk for about 40 minutes or to take a local bus.

    In most places in Russia, outside of the large cities and tourist areas, you will not find much in the way of quality dining. The same can be said of Kovrov. However...if you have friends or family to visit, you will have not only a meal to remember, but an evening as well! Wwll, this particular evening we had vodka, some Russian salads, vodka,...

  • Transit point on Road M7

    Gorokhovets Transportation

    Gorokhovets is located just on Road M7 'Volga' which goes from Moscow to Nizhnyi Novgorod (through Vladimir). One can go there by bus Moscow-Nizhnyi Novgorod (they always stop in Gorokhovets), but it takes a lot of time (about 6 hours). We went there by car, and it was the best way to go there.The road after Vladimir is quite picturesque.

  • Cafe in skiing centre 'Puzhalova Gora'

    Gorokhovets Restaurants

    The cafe isn't 'fast food' at all (at least in summer). It's a normal restaurant with nice meals, not very fast service and usual average figures in the bill. We liked it a lot, primarily because it was the best solution of 'food supply problem' - cafes and restaurants in small town are not common. On our first day in Gorokhovets we had dinner only...
