Vologda is relatively small Russian town - center of Vologodskaya Oblast'.
Region contains some industrial cities like Cherepovets (origin of Severstal - one of the world leading still company), but capital is relatively small and quite.

It is famouse with its local crafts - Vologda Laces.

It is very beatiful and great for a souvinir, but really very expensive. Tissue like one on the picture can start from $50 up to $1000 depending on size. And a lace dress can be $3000 - $4000! That is because lacing is very time-taking process: one thing can took several month of work.

Coat of Arms of Vologda appeared in 1700 as sign of Vologda military unit, which played significant role in Northern War with Sweden.

    This is a place I would love to see mainly for your introduction-pic, but also for the Kitchen of Ivan Ivanovich !

    I have very good memories of Vologda. Stayed in the same hotel and also did the river cruise :)) Shame I didn´t know about the CCCP nostalgia restaurant.
