Description
 
A fascinating voyage of exploration into the history, architecture, people & archaeology of the countryside that surrounds Moscow. Wave after wave of invaders -- Tatars, Poles, the French & Germans -- sought to conquer Russia through these lands. The old estates & homes of Pushkin, Pasternak & Tolstoy, Tchaikovsky & Stanislavsky, stand as monuments to Russia’s creative genius. Now with the collapse of the Soviet Union, many of the beautiful monasteries & ruined country churches are coming back to life. This is also the land of the dacha -- that special haven to which all city dwellers escape, whether a wooden mansion or a tiny room in the woods. A practical guide for both tourists & curious armchair travelers. Photos & maps.
