Yura, 8 910 846 6538, an engineer from Tver, dropped it all, constructed a cabin out of misc. scraps on the left side of the Volga ~20 miles down from Staritsa.
Guests welcomed but accommodation is as basic – but also as quiet and picturesque – as it gets.
Photos coming up.
Continuing my effort to consolidate and organize old Staritsa-related stuff.. more >>
Part 1 of my attempt to consolidate the Staritsa stuff scattered around. Here are some photos of the town and the surrounding countryside, and much more are on their way.
Rolling hills, semi-forested, largely abandoned or used for grazing, still mostly free access. Ideal for hiking or camping. In recent past (till shortly after the war) the area was densely populated (three times the density and probably 10 times the economic activity compared to present). A stroll with a metal detector is certain to get you something from the past.
