    This Town is interesting. There sounds to be quite a lot of interest to see and do. Like you, I think the wedding may be a tradition.

    Oh my God, so many churches! I must confess I never heard about that place; I knew about Ivan the Terrible and some of his “achievements”, but I have still a lot to learn. Not too far from Moscow if I pass by one day. Thanks for this page Sergey.
