We spent the night in the capital city of the Mari El Republic is Yoshkar-Ola which means Red City in Mari and had the entire next day free to wander the new but interesting city. This is all new development along the Malaya Kokshaga River that runs through the city. e
We watched a glockenspiel procession of the Jesus and the Apostles which is kind of visible in the middle of the photo.
No this is not Moscow!
And this part was like St, Mark's Square in Venice.
Hanging out with Alexander Pushkin, Russia's most famous author and his most famous character Evgeny Onegin.
Here is a picture of a cell where inmates and people who were brought in for questioning were held. We had an interesting tour by a woman whose father died in a gulag and was brought to this building and never seen again.
