Ryazan

RYAZAN – РЯЗАНЬ

Ryazan is one of the oldest Russian cities. It was founded in 1095. The city is located about 200 km south-east of Moscow. As of 2019 its population amounts to about 550 000 people. The close vicinity of Moscow makes Ryazan a good day-trip destination.

The Ryazan Kremlin is the city's major architectural attraction with a number of old churches and a very beautiful cathedral. The Kremlin as we see now was built in the 17-19th centuries. The huge Assumption Cathedral was commissioned in 1699.
