We'll walk around Kaluga a little more, and then head towards Vyazma. There we will visit the Monastery of St. John the Baptist, which was founded in the mid 16th century. On the way to Moscow we'll turn to Mozhaisk and visit the Battle of Borodino.

Станция Фруктовая

Juice Bars

There are a lot of good places in Kaluga, but I advise you to have breakfast in the Fresh Bar "Fruit Station". Be sure to try some waffles!

Яченская набережная

Rest Areas, Lakes

Before leaving Kaluga, go to the Peace Park, which is located on the bank of the Yachen reservoir. The territory is landscaped for comfortable rest.

Ресторан "Петр Великий"


How about dinner at a restaurant with an unusual style? The restaurant building is an exact replica of the first ship in the Baltic fleet.

Иоанно-Предтеченский женский монастырь


The Men's Monastery in the name of the Beheading of John the Baptist was founded by the Venerable Gerasim of Boldinsky in 1542. The monastery itself is located in a very quiet and picturesque place. The main highlight and pride of the Precursor Monastery is the three-hall Odigitrievskaya Church.

Historic Sites

The Battle of Borodino is one of the key events in the Battle of Moscow in 1812. Before returning to Moscow, I suggest you dive a little into history and visit the battlefield.



And finally, I invite you to dinner at a restaurant of Caucasian cuisine.
