Cities[edit]

  • Ryazan — Ryazan is one of the older cities of Russia, which has its own kremlin that served as a major fortress on the border of Tatar and Russian lands for centuries
  • Kasimov — a large town that has gone back and forth between being Russian and Tatar—to which its mix of minarets and onion domes is testament
  • Mikhailov
  • Solotcha — once known (with some pretence) as an "Italy in Ryazan," Solotcha is a quiet town in the suburbs of Ryazan and home to the Solotchinsky Convent, which dates back some 700 years
