Oryol Oblast is a region in the Chernozemye region, bordering Kursk Oblast to the southwest, Bryansk Oblast to the northwest, Kaluga Oblast to the north, Tula Oblast to the east, and Lipetsk Oblast to the southeast.




  • Oryol — the regional capital and only city of any significant size is a destination for its clean air, old churches, and extensive literary and dramatic history
  • Livny — a small city built on the site of a former Russian fort, which often found itself at the center of conflict between the Russians, Cossacks, and Crimean Tatars
  • Mtsensk — a large town near the country house-museum of Ivan Turgenev at Spasskoye-Lutovinovo, where he wrote his Hunter's Sketches

Other destinations



As throughout the majority of Russia, few foreign languages are spoken, and not often spoken with much proficiency; knowing some Russian will certainly come in handy.
