Rostov Veliky Kreml - status of repairs

Can anyone tell me any details on the CURRENT condition (state of restorations) in Rostov Veliky?

As well as experiencing the area, I am interested in photographing as much as possible. I know there had been extensive scaffolding on the KRemlin buildings.

The extense of the repairs may make me decided to divert my trip somewhere else!

Anyone have recent experience and assessment of the condition?

And What about the surrounding monastaries/architecture?

Also - has anyone been to nearby Borrissoglebsky? Is the local transportation somewhat frequent?

I am interested in your impressions

Hi, Missing inSP!

I redirected your question to the local tourist forum and today I’ve got quite a recent info from Rostov: http://forum.awd.ru/viewtopic.php?t=68625

In your other post you said that you can speak Russian; thus, you can register at the forum awd.ru and ask any questions on Rostov and Golden Ring there – people at that forum are very friendly and active and responses will come quickly. If you don’t have Cyrillic at your computer, write questions in transliterated Russian – they will understand you.

Borisoglebsky is only 18 km from Rostov, and I think the best option to get there will be a taxi.

Enjoy your trip!
