Map of Oryol Oblast

  • 1 Oryol — the regional capital and only city of any significant size is a destination for its clean air, old churches, and extensive literary and dramatic history
  • 2 Livny   — a small city built on the site of a former Russian fort, which often found itself at the center of conflict between the Russians, Cossacks, and Crimean Tatars
  • 3 Mtsensk   — a large town near the country house-museum of Ivan Turgenev at Spasskoye-Lutovinovo, where he wrote his Hunter's Sketches

TalkEdit

As throughout the majority of Russia, few foreign languages are spoken, and not often spoken with much proficiency; knowing some Russian will certainly come in handy.
