6 Russian cities, where it is worth to go to the May holidays

On the May holidays, ticket prices soar strongly on all the most popular overseas creations, so the idea to prefer their native spaces to them comes by itself. But the advantages of such a choice are not only an economic factor, but also simplicity of organization, because you do not need a visa, and the staff of any hotel or hostel speaks the same language with you, and a nostalgic excursion program in which you remember exactly something from school geography and stories. We have compiled a list of cities where the May holidays can be spent with pleasure - strolling through ancient castles and monasteries, eating caviar and fish, swimming in waterfalls and seeing the sights from the water on a boat.

Suzdal

Suzdal

In Suzdal, life flows measuredly and calmly, and there are more churches than even houses, which creates the impression that you are in the past.Tourists prefer to begin and end the inspection of the city, which will abound with three May holidays from religious sites - in addition to a dozen churches there are three more important monasteries - Rizopolozhensky, Pokrovsky and Spaso-Evfimievsky, as well as the Museum of Wooden Architecture and the Shchurovo Mound Museum, themed which also closes on the Christian art of ancient Russia. It is still worth a pause in the inspection of historical heritage - for the sake of a walk along the Kamenka River on a river tram or for the tasting of local salted cucumbers and mead.

Sochi

Sochi

Here, we will definitely not discover America, because Sochi was and remains a very popular tourist resort before the Olympics. But in this review he was also because May is perhaps the best time to be here. It is still impossible to swim in the May holidays, but you can be pleasantly aware of the absence of crowds of tourists at the main sights of the city - in the arboretum park, on Mount Akhun, on the Agur waterfalls and in the boxwood groves. Those who want something more than just monotonous pictures of landscapes on the phone,It is worth going fishing on a trout farm, rafting on a raft on the mountain river Mzymta, or checking whether there is still snow on the mountain tops in Krasnaya Polyana.

Vyborg

Vyborg

The most famous landmark of the city is Vyborg Castle - you can also start a tour of the city from it, not forgetting to climb the tower and view Vyborg from a height. A separate day with good weather (and during the May holidays, it can be unpredictable) should be allocated to visit the Mon Repos Park, which, with its dilapidated castles and stone caves, resembles scenery for a fairy tale about princes and princesses. Lovers of contemporary art should definitely stop at the library of architect Alvar Aalto, get acquainted with the ideas of the Finnish “father of modernism” and buy souvenirs from a trip to the Glass Blower Shop, and those who prefer classical art should take a look at one of the exhibitions.

Kazan

Kazan

Kazan is perhaps the most picturesque city in our country, where you can even forget at some point that you really are in Russia. Kazan has a mass of “individuals”a thorough inspection of which is worth spending at least three to four days: start from the Kazan Kremlin, where the 16th century Orthodox cathedral is adjacent to the main Tatar mosque Kul-Sharif, by boat to get to the Orthodox monastery on Sviyazhsk island, visit the local Museum of Soviet life and the National Museum, and finish with a visit to the Kazan Opera House. The excursion will be incomplete if you do not discover that the kitchen in Kazan is as colorful, mottled as the sights. And since jamon was banned, from here you can safely bring home sausage from horse meat, and sweet tooth - honey pastries.

Sevastopol

Sevastopol

Sevastopol last year for the first time entered the top ten cities in Russia, popular for trips to the May holidays. In this city, wherever you look, everything is connected with the sea, but at the same time Sevastopol was never famous for its decent beaches, so the May trip here can be justified by interacting with the sea “at a distance” - namely, by visiting the Museum of the Black Sea Fleet, Aquarium, Dolphinarium and the Monument to the Scuttled Ships. A separate day should definitely be allocated to a country excursion to the Fiolent Bridge and Balaklava Bay with a fortress, a port for yachts and breathtaking views from the mountains to the surroundings.

Astrakhan

Astrakhan

The purpose of the trip to Astrakhan can be a trivial, but appetizing - to eat plenty of fish, and in all its forms - grilled, dried, smoked and even fried, the fish in Astrakhan suffice. On a full stomach and walks around the city will be more inspiring, but one cannot expect any special color from Astrakhan. The city stands on several rivers, so it is they who are its most authentic sights, and then there is a "standard set" of the Russian city - a well-preserved Kremlin, merchant districts, an opera house, an art gallery and a central cathedral. Do not miss even during a short visit to Astrakhan is the medieval capital of the Golden Horde Saray Batu, clearly illustrating the times of the Mongol conquest, and tasting caviar, which in May is just the season.
