Regions

Cities

  • Kirov — the region's capital and principal city, on the Trans-Siberian Railway; it has sights to see, but is not very distinctive
  • Kirovo-Chepetsk — the region's only other city, besides the capital, is a small industrial city and not a tourist destination
  • Kotelnich — a large town on the Trans-Siberian Railway with a cathedral; a good base for any expeditions off into the Nurgush Nature Reserve
  • Zuevka — small town with a memorial museum to the great Russian painter Viktor Vasnetsov, who was born in this area

Other destinations

  • Nurgush Nature Reserve

Understand

Kirov Oblast is probably about as close as you can get to a Russian version of the American "flyover city." The few sites of much interest to a tourist are in the capital, Kirov, but most Trans-Siberian Railway passengers will probably skip even that.

Talk

See Russian phrasebook.

Get in

Trains depart daily for Kirov from Moscow and take about 18 hours.

The Trans-Siberian Railway stops at Kotelnich, Kirov, and Zuevka (from west to east).
