47 photo with description
Smolensk has made upon me rather pleasant impression. I thought that after World War II and two storms of a city here do not remain from the historical centre of anything. And in actual fact — many pre-war and pre-revolutionary buildings, restored churches, and restored Smolensk Kremlin.

All! The city very much was pleasant, the historical centre — low merchant, the city pure and urns is a lot of (which have separately surprised with a variety and a creative). In the centre tourist indexes that is not present in the majority of cities of Russia (even in Petersburg no) often come across. Smolensk very green and well-groomed city as a criterion of attention of the city authorities — the set of flower beds, is a lot of squares and parks. Too many interesting sights in Smolensk!
