L is for ..... Labitnangy!

In Yamalo-Nenetskii Autonomous Okrug, This is a Northern town where traditionally they fish and herd reindeer. I've never been there but chose it because I found some stunning photos on the official town site.

N is for Nizhny Novgorod. Another favorite of mine. If you ever go make sure you take a boat cruise on the Volga.

Never been to Orlov (where is it?), or to Nizhny Novgorod, but I'd like to.

P is for Perm,

In Perm region, South and East from Moscow, over towards Yekaterinburg. Another of those places I just haven't had the chance to get to

It's in Siberia, near Baikal, named after the Decembrist and poet Wilhelm kuchelbecker, who as far as i can discover is buried there.

R is for Rostov Velikiy

This is Rostov the Great, not Rostov on the Don. It isn't very large, but has lots of churches, and sits on a lake which Peter the Great I think described as a big, filthy puddle
