Huge fields and a frozen lake. A lone bungee swinging. Sit on a bridge or lie on the grass, coming up with plans for the day.
Mikhailov. There are class buildings built in 1912, ancient churches. The simplest outdoor advertising on the facades of two-storey collapsing buildings. Cobblestone bridge, leading to a village within the city limits. Children's amusement park just behind the back of a huge (citywide) monument to Lenin.
Not many cafes meet on this stretch of our journey. It's simple and fast enough. Russian cuisine.
Let's look at the provincial baroque in Tula region. The Orthodox Church is in excellent condition. It hasn't been closed since 1773.
A modern city park. Ferris wheel and carousels, book exchange and chess in the open air. Cycling paths and sculptures of characters from fairy tales. Pleasant space for an afternoon walk in the open air.
Panoramic platform on the river bank. Romantic, rarely empty place in the city. The open view justifies the crowds.
A gastrobistro in downtown Tula. Free parking and unobtrusive live music. Laconic European interior. It feels easy here.
Memorial to the defenders of Tula. Victory Square. A good place for a short evening stroll after a good dinner.
