    Voronezh

    Voronezh
    Voronezh is a city in 536 kilometers (333 miles) to the south from Moscow. It'll take you about 6-9 hours by bus to be in Moscow.
    Actually it's a city of contrasts - there are poor, decent and kinda luxurious places and districts.
    The cost of living allows a foreigner from EU or USA to behave like a king and not worry about money.
    There is a proverb or saying - Москва Воронеж - хрен догонишь)
    Well, actually there is another one: Жизнь прекрасна в Нидерландах, а в Воронеже - г..вно

    There is a link to more than 100 photos of Voronezh.

    I didn't hear this proverb before. It looks like it's a saying about a train.
    Please, correct my mistakes, except for the cases I misspell something on purpose!

    Ну да, просто в фильме ещё "Хочу в тюрьму" та же фраза была, но в Воронеже эту фразу воспринимают неадекватно :fool" : не в пользу Москвы

    Глаза закроешь - паришь;
    Глаза откроешь - воронишь...
    "Россия для русских" - это неправильно. Остальные-то чем лучше?

    Is that true, that there is monument for The Raven and a Hedgehog in Voronezh?
    (Because Воронеж = Ворон + Ёж.)

    Бывал я в этой деревне, мнящей себя столицей Черноземья. Основное впечатление: одна большая пробка. А еще в Воронеже живет и орудует Снежена Денисовна из "Нашей Раши".

    Looks like a nice city. And newly renovated!
    I've heard of it before, but can't remember the context.
