Russian Winter on Volga

That winter was very cold in Russia. We met the New Year 2011 at a temperature -27Β°C, sometime -30Β°C, near the historic town of Uglich on the river of Volga where Dmitry, the 8-year-old son of the Russian tzar, Ivan the Terrible, was killed in 1591.

Uglich, Russia.

Uglich. Russia.

Winters in Russia can be very cold and incredible beautiful like a fairy tale. Nevertheless, our small German car (it name was Angelique Sain-Hevre Desiree Arno) worked perfectly.

  1. Russian Winters are special, both due to their extreme coldness and unforgettable beauty. I love your pictures that bring back memories of cross-country skiing in birchtrees forests and on frozen rivers. The coldest I experienced there was in Novgorod, it must have been around – 20. But what a fabulous frozen landscape ! Thanks for your visit and “like”.
