Interesting architectural solution. In perfect harmony with the surrounding urban landscape. Also looks good on the background of the Volga. It is better to visit in the summer, walk through the Bridges in winter, is dirty, and transport is not rare, but quite uncomfortable for visitors.

This bridge is definitely the best place to visit in my home city.
Recommended route: Starting at Zvezda cinema => Walking up the river through the City Park (800m) => Crossing the Old Bridge => following 1.2 km embankment down the river to the riverside station => returning up to the New Bridge => crossing the New Bridge to finish at Zvezda again. This will take slightly more than an hour.

Breaking our journey between Moscow and St. Petersberg in this quietly impressive city by the Volga, I could not believe my eyes when I came across a metal bench on which sat a bronze sculpture of a male holding a large balalaika (I assume), his rounded hat resting on the bench to his right. I had seen two days earlier exactly the same work on the East side-walk of Tverskaya St in Moscow, and nobody could tell me anything about it. It turns out that it was dedicated to a nationally popular folk singer who in 2002 was shot to death in his home at Tver. I did a little research and discovered that a 4-part TV series on his life is planned, or has already been produced. It is a small world, even in a country as large as Russia. I regard this little work as a masterpiece of urban art that catches the eye and the interest immediately.

Standing on a pedestal in a park on the edge of the Volga opposite the city of Tver, supported by a metal balustrade on which he leans back looking away from both river and city, his cloak draped over the metal behind him, austerely dressed in black and wearing a large black top-hat that conceals the upper part of his face, this is not so much the great Alexander Pushkin, but his most arrogantly famous creation -------- Eugene Onegin. This is an unforgettable monument that triumphs over the many sycophantic and romantic representations of the great poet of which every city we visited in Russia seemed to have at least one. It seems symbolic that he is placed between two bridges: The Old and the New. An artist who is timeless and eternal.

Ferris wheel in the city Park.
I love Russian Winters..
I have never had so much fun before. It seems like everything around me in the winter costs money to have fun. Yet here in Tver's parks it is virtually free to have fun as long as you dress warm to have some fun. I love it here so much I am thinking about buying a Winter Vacation Home..

Built in the mid-16th Cent., this is Tver’s oldest surviving building, situated in an old part of the city notable for its many wooden buildings. White in colour, it had a very pleasing architectural style. The front section and façade are crowned by a fairly tall spire, and continue backward through a flat middle section to a sloping rear from which 6 cupolas of varying sizes emerge ---- diminishing in size as they proceed backwards. We had a pleasant walk around the exterior, but could not enter to see the iconostasis and the 200-year-old wall paintings that apparently are highly regarded. It has the additional distinction of being the only church of Tver that survived WWll.

According to our brilliant guide Ludmila Nikolayevna Sokolova, the Volga river in Tver is not a mature and wide Mother Volga, but a modest Young Lady Volga. It has two very beautiful Bridges of very different styles.
The embankment is pleasant for quite walks and contemplation.
The monument to Alexander Pushkin is really good there.
A very peaceful place.

The most fun place in Tver. I was happily surprised to find several goats from Sweden here, but they also have small goats from all over the world. The guide told an interesting story why they started it. You'll hear when you get there.
Only thing is that the door might be locked when you come. It's bc it's a small museum and they only let a few in at once. But when someone exit, they let new visitors in.
Great souvenirs in the store with funny goats.

This monumental equestrian statue, mounted on a large white pedestal in a spacious square in the city, does not have the sense of energy and motion so evident in that of Yurih Dolgoruky in Moscow’s Tverskaya Square, but given the density of traffic surrounding the latter, its peaceful location make it much safer to walk around and take a good look. A nephew of the great Alexander Nevsky, he ruled as Prince of Tver for a decade or so, antagonizing first Novgorod, then the Orthodox Church, and finally the Great Kahn of the Golden Horde (Tartars) who appointed him in the first place. He had his head chopped off by the Tartars that, in those days, was reason enough for Sainthood, and the Church -------- despite past quarrels ----- canonized him as St. Mikhail of Tver. Of course, none of this is evident from the horse or its rider, but at least it makes a good story for tour guides to relate.
