Majestic churches of Tambov in spring

Late spring is one of the best times of the year to visit Russia – the weather is already warm, streets has been cleaned after winter, and you are surrounded by greenery and flowers.

For example, let’s visit Tambov, a city with a population of about 300 thousand people located 460 kilometers south-east of Moscow, and enjoy the views of the local places of worship in spring. Photos by: Pavel Labutin.
