Tverskaya Oblast is the soul of Russia. It is situated in the northwest region of Russia. The oblast takes the advantageous geographical position at the intersection of the international and internal communications (railways, motorways and waterways) connecting Moscow and Saint Petersburg.

Tverskaya Oblast is a land of forests, rivers and lakes. It is the place where such great rivers as the Volga, the Dnepr and the Northern Dvina and 1500 small rivers more originate from. Since olden days the real natural treasure of the Upper Volga has been the Lake Seliger and all the Valdai lakes where the Volga springs from. The majority of the lakes is connected by channels and rivers, forming the network that are of great importance as a place of rest and tourism. The abundance of reservoirs provides significant fish resources and conditions for boating with license and amateur fishery.

The abundant fauna allows developing the hunting tourism, and the hunt for the wolf and bear is of special interest. Various landscapes allow laying pedestrian, bicycle, automobile and other kinds of routes.

One should visit Tverskaya Oblast to see its historical monuments, architecture, archeology and culture. A part of 300 historical cities of Russia is in the Tverskaya Oblast. They are Tver, Toropets, Staritsa, Torzhok, Kashin, Vyshny Volochek, Bezhetsk, Ostashkov and others.

Tverskaya Oblast is especially rich in monuments of the 18-20th centuries: 14 cities have the status "the monument of town-planning".

The Tver monasteries among which the most ancient are the Boriso-Glebsky (XII c.) and the Otoroch- Uspensky (XIII c.) are of special interest among tourists.

The unique landscape gave rise to extremely beautiful projects. Many places bore the names of "Russian Italy" or "Russian Switzerland". Manors of the Tver land are connected with the names of such outstanding people of Russia as A.S.Pushkin, I.I.Lazhechnikov, L.N. Tolstoy. There is a special route for tourists called 'Pushkin ring of the Upper Volga region' over residential places of the poet.

The ancient history, the advantageous geographical position between two Russian capitals, abundant nature, the developed industry, the intellectual, scientific and cultural potential give hope that the Tver land will attract attention of tourists.
