"Birthplace of Tschaikovsky" Votkinsk by DEY

Votkinsk Travel Guide: 19 reviews and 112 photos

Due to work, I finally had a chance to visit at least a small part of Russia. The Birthplace of the composer Tschaikovsky: Votkinsk. It is in the Republic of Udmurtia, some 600 miles east of Moscow. It was a great opportunity I was happy to take advantage. What was even better, the weather was Indian summer so I was able to do lots of things outside, including horseback riding, my favorite hobby!

As soon as I get a chance I will load some pictures.

    Hey! :) Just wnated to correct a little, that river name in Votkinsk is "Votka" and the Preud has english translation Pond, so the pond name is "Votkinsk pond" :)
