Overview

This city 500 km south of Moscow is not the most obvious choice for a trip, but Voronezh has plenty to offer: from the first Russian warship built by Peter the Great to modern theaters and parks. Even (or especially) for Russians, Voronezh is not the most glamorous destination despite its big-city status (1.03 million inhabitants). It is not the capital like Moscow, nor an important cultural symbol like St. Petersburg, nor far and exotic like Vladivostok, nor warm and tropical like Sochi, but a typical regional center like any other.
