We didnt take dhe main road and tried to enjoy the countryside. Russia is beautiful. Not just birch trees and mud. People in villages still build their traditional wooden houses, and they put them in really nice places. I am sure, a lot of them dont have water and some not even electricity, but when you look outside the window and see the majestic rivers and valleys…… its priceless…..
After 2 days of driving we reached Nizhny Novgorod.This city is like some relaxed miniature of Moscow. They also have some Kremlin (aah, the view here!!) and really nice old part of town. Its also called the architectural queen of Russia. You will find old and new here. And people are smiling! Unbelievable 🙂
