Hello, there are some photos that I made myself travelling by car. Starting from Moscow and going various directions.

First tale is about travel to the village of Godenovo and also to Pereslavl-Zalessky, a town in Yaroslavl Oblast, Russia, located 140 kilometers (87 mi) northeast of Moscow on the main Moscow–Yaroslavl road and on the southeastern shore of Lake Pleshcheyevo at the mouth of the Trubezh River. Population: 41,925 (2010 Census). Known as Pereyaslavl until the 15th century, it was founded in 1152 by Prince Yury Dolgoruky.



Early in the morning leaving Moscow


And in the couple of hours there it is, Pereslavl

A policeman stops us! He checked the documents, seat belts, insurance and let us go. Why did he stop us? Like our lights were not set right. OK, at lest no fines this time.


The road is not bad, sometimes really good




And now we are in Pskov! 720 kilometers and 12 hours (including breaks)

Going to the city centre. There are plenty of old temples. Pskov architectural school is something unusial: mighty white walls, separated bell-towers, triangular slopes of the roofs.

Varlaam Hutynsky temple, 1495.

Assumption temple Next to the Ferry" 1521.
