Small towns and villages mostly north from Moscow. Tver, Novgorod, Leningrad, Vladimir regions. Karelia. The Kola peninsula, and especially Kandalaksha and vincinity. A few other places I know well or where I have old tested connections: Ryazan, Lipetsk, Moldova, cities along the Trans-Siberian.

Practical information. Where to stay. What to see or do. Museums, churches, battle sites, World War cemeteries. Impressions, photos, stories, anecdotes.

Questions welcomed. Assistance to individuals or small groups available. Journalists and film makers in need of local support may wish to talk to me.
