Welcome To Yoshkar-Ola!
Your Romantic Tour To Russian Province
|Tue Oct 16 2:51:29 EDT 2018 |
Yoshkar-Ola or Joshkar-Ola is a
"middle city" between Nizhny Novgorod and
Kazan. Find Kazan and go 150 km up north and you will
see it next to the river.
Yoshkar-Ola is located 800 km east of Moscow and
56 kilometers from the Volga River...mother of all Russian rivers!
Yoshkar-Ola is the capital city of the Mari-El Republic, one of Russian
Republics. Here, the seat of government (with a President) rests.
Come see for yourself the majestic beauty of
this city. Yoshkar-Ola is surrounded by beautiful wooded lakes and green fields.
This vast natural beauty is prized by its local inhabitants.
Yoshkar-Ola was founded in 1584 as a
fortress on the Kokshaga River by the tsar Ivan
For many years, it was a small town (as compared to most Russian
provincial cities), and was inaccessible to foreigners. However, there is now a
population of over 300,000 citizens.
This historic provincial city connects
itself to the spirit of older times and the activity of today's
modern world. However, the inhabitants take great pride in many Russian
and Mari traditions.
One can't but mention one more treasure of the
city - a lot of beautiful girls and women.
That's true! A saw it with my own eyes and can confirm it. And due to this fact
many foreigners would like to go there. I know namy happy cases when people
found their mates and got married. But be careful. There are
many scammers here who sit in front of the computers and write
false letters. Trust reliable and well-known agencies only. And
think 1 million times before sending any
money! I am an Russian living in Canada, and I am married to a
Russian lady. I was interested in your questions.
Fly to Moscow, from here you can either fly to Kazan or take a train to Yoshkar-Ola. A flight
will cost you 200 USD one way and about 1.5 hours. By train it is
about 15 hours. There is only one train and it leaves
the Kazansky Train Terminal (Kazansky Vagsal) in Moscow daily around 5:00 PM
arriving at Yoshkar-Ola around 7:30 AM. Train compartments are very
comfortable, but make sure you do not take the Platskart, but
private quarters. Get a sleeper berth, 1st class (Spalny) - 2 beds per cabin,
(aprox $150), 2nd class ( koupay )- 4 beds per cabin ($55-$65). The higher price
includes a box lunch and the cost of bedding, the lower
prices do not include any meal and you will have to pay for bedding seperately. There
is sometimes a dining car. Return trip leaves Yoshkar-Ola at 6:00 PM daily, arriving
in Moscow at 9:00 AM.
The second way to travel to Yoshkar-Ola is flying to Kazan via Lufthansa. You can fly to Frankfurt and then to Kazan ( 2 hours away from Yoshkar-Ola by car).
There are 2 hotels in the city but I recommend you
to rent an appartament.

Why Russian Women?
So…what makes these women so
special? This is a question that I am often asked
by men new to the world of international dating. Those guys fortunate
enough to have met or visited the Former Soviet Union (FSU) already know
The first thing is that these women
still have “traditional” values. Now this phrase probably means something
a little different to everyone who hears it. So let’s qualify this a bit.
A FSU woman will want to have children and a family. Yes, she will want to
be a wife and mother. Many will be totally happy in these roles alone.
Some will like to work outside the home as well.
By and large these women know how to
be a wife and mother! The whole Russian culture teaches that a woman finds
her highest fulfillment and joy in being a wife and mother. They learn
these skills from their mother’s at a young age.
Most women in the FSU have a college
degree or are working on one. Many have knowledge (at least to a degree)
of a 2nd or 3rd language. These ladies are very well
So, they are beautiful, smart,
responsible, intelligent, caring and loving - they have all these
How can one
find a way to say about the Russian soul
: I almost think it is better not to
even try. It is very difficult for a foreigner who has not experienced
Russians in Russia to understand. You almost have
to be there; maybe you do have to be
I am in love with a Russian
woman, and I want her to stay a Russian
woman. It is not your purpose to change who she is. You
should love who she is very much.The goal instead is to reach a
mutual understanding about the cultural differences. And while you do not
want to change who she is, or change her soul and personality created by
the influence of her culture, you stand willing and able to adapt yourself
to her needs and wants, and to help her understand your culture.
So who are they, those Russian
women? Read the great Russia literature to understand it. Read
Tolstoy, Dostoevsky, Bunin. Of course a
lot of things have changed in Russia since then. O tempora o mores!
:-) But Russia is not Moscow or St Petersburg only. Russia now is first of
all a province. Especially there you can meet "a mysterious Russia
soul". And the most beautiful women live in the province. For example in
Yoshkar-Ola. Come and see it yourself.
