Tver is a picturesque city that is located on both banks of the Volga River where two small river flows meet: the Tmaka and the Tvertsa river. Tver was the capital of the powerful medieval Tver Principality and one-time rival to Moscow as Russia's preeminent power base. The medieval center is long gone, a victim of centuries of fires, Nazis, and general rebuilding, but the downtown area is nonetheless quite attractive, dominated by neoclassical architecture erected during the reign of Catherine the Great.
