VologdaNow we are moving on a night train. After eight hours traveling from Moscow, we will be surprised with this city that offers a wealth of attractions and rides for tourists. Vologda’s population reaches 300,000 inhabitants and has many historical and cultural establishments.

The city is part of the Russian history because in some rather dark ages was exile site for opponents. Lenin and Stalin lived their exile here. The house where Stalin lived is now a museum of Exile. Another house museum is one that housed Peter the Great in his visits there. We also found the Saint Sophia Cathedral, the first city building made of stone and ordered by Ivan the Terrible.

The Kremlin has museums like the Krayavédchesky curious, exhibiting a collection from prehistory and Lace Museum, which reflects the importance of this industry in the nineteenth century.
