About City 

Ryazan is one of the oldest cities in Russia and the capital of Ryazan Province, located in the western part of the country. It is believed that the city was founded before the 8th century BC, and there is plenty of historical evidence of that fact. There is an old historic Kremlin in Ryazan, built in the early 9th century. Ryazan is a cultural center, historical center, and educational center, as well as a center of arts, and a great number of Russian painters, actors, writers, and musicians are born in this city.

The favorable economic and geographical position of Ryazan on the navigable Oka River, and its proximity to Moscow predetermined the significant development of the city. Ryazan’s buildings are not characterized by any single architectural style. Many noted Russian architects worked in Ryazan, including Kazakov, who worked and died in this city, and built the house of Politech University. ​​A “green” ring of forests, parks, and garden associations surrounded Ryazan, with large parks located in each area of the city, and compositions of flowers and vertical gardening became customary, not only for the main streets but also for industrial zones and factory buildings. Ryazan repeatedly wins recognition among the cities of the Soviet Union for its landscaping. 

The most beautiful sightseeing is the light and music fountain, located in front of the Opera and Ballet Theater. The city is full of attractions for young people and international students such as modern museums, Indian restaurants, Asian restaurants, Russian restaurants, food stores, art galleries, cinemas, and recreation areas.
