    Moscow is the capital of Russia and its political, scientific, historical, architectural and business centre, from which power and might of the Russian state developed. Moscow is the barometer and nucleus of the changes sweeping through Russia. Nowhere are Russia's contrasts more apparent than here - ancient monasteries and ultra-modern monoliths stand side by side, and New Russian millionaires and poverty-stricken pensioners walk the same streets. Moscow's history lies in layers. In the Kremlin, for instance, both Ivan the Terrible and Stalin orchestrated their terrors; Napoleon watched Moscow burn; Lenin fashioned the dictatorship of the proletariat; Kruschev directed the cold war and Gorbachev unleashed perestroika.


    Yaroslavl is a Russian treasure. Its wooded areas are filled with animals, birds, babbling brooks and streams and charming glades. Wonder through the white birch trees and the contrasting coral bunches of ashberry trees, taking in the fragrant air.
    Aside from the natural beauty of the region, the town is filled with ancient churches and fortresses. Among them are the Church of the Prophet Elijah, best known for the frescoes painted by well known Kostrom masters, Guri Nikitin and Sila Savin.
