Taking a road trip through the villages, towns and cities in the vicinity of Belgorod will reward you with a true feel of the architectural and social makeup of Belgorod Oblast. Belenikhino and Belenkoye are two more places worth visiting while you're in Belgorod Oblast.
Head outdoors and make the most of Belgorod Oblast's gardens. If the weather forecast isn't that great, spend some time in Belgorod Oblast's art galleries, theaters and art museums.
Explore a side of Belgorod Oblast most visitors don't see by joining a knowledgeable local on one of the city walking tours.
Regardless of whether you're traveling on the common tourist trail or taking the path less trodden, memorizing at least some Russian phrases will endear you with the locals. A great example of a useful phrase is "Xotite potancevat?" (Would you like to dance with me?). "Otkuda ty?" ("Where are you from?") is another handy one to keep up your sleeve.
Russia Day is celebrated on the 12th of June, so if your visit coincides, take a break from sightseeing and spend the day celebrating with happy locals.
As your sojourn winds down, you'll be sure to bid Belgorod a sad "Poka!"
