Our country is so large that we can celebrate New Year 11 times .
However, our route travels through the Central part of Russia and covers an area, which contains a large number of attractions and clearly characterizes the culture and traditions of the country.
Of course, at first the majority of foreign visitors wants to see the capital of Russia — Moscow, but as we, Russians, say «Moscow is not the whole Russia».
A huge number of historical monuments and cultural sites is located from Moscow to the Middle Volga — kremlins, monasteries, ancient cities with a rich history, charming provincial towns, numerous villages famous for their crafts and simple hamlets with an interesting appearance.
Russia (also officially known as the Russian Federation) is a country in eastern Europe and northern Asia.

Russia is the largest country in the world and it is also the world’s ninth most populous nation.
About 200 different other ethnic groups and indigenous peoples live in Russia. Ethnic Russians comprise 80% of the country’s population.
There are four seasons in the Central part of Russia: summer, autumn, winter and spring. Summer and winter are the longest. They last for about 3-3,5 months and 4 — 4,5 months respectively.
Autumn usually lasts for 2 — 2,5 months and spring is a rather brief period which covers only April, end of March and beggining of May.
The weather in summer is unstable: it changes very fast from clear sky to rain and back. Throughout summer at the daytime the temperature is about +25 .. + 30°C when it is sunny and about +20°C when it rains.
Nights are quite warm in June and July: infrequently the temperature drops below +13..+15°С. In August nights get longer and colder: the temperature drops to +7 .. + 10°C by the end of the month.
In Autumn the temperature declines slowly and gradually in the central part of the country. Winter comes in the second half of November.
September is usually warm. At the daytime the temperature is about +25°С in the beggining of the month and +15°С in the end of the month. Nights are quite cool: the temperature drops to +2..+5°С by the end of the month. In a particularly cold rainy days daytime temperatures may not reach the mark of +10°C.
We are not really interested in winter as winter motorcycle tours are beyond our traveling.read more...
