Moscow, the national capital, is located roughly 240 miles (386 kilometers) east of Michajlovskoje.
Don't limit yourself to Michajlovskoje; this region has a wealth of natural and cultural attractions which await the savvy traveler. If you're looking for other places to check out, you'll find Velizh, 45 miles (72 kilometers) to the north, and Novosokolniki 45 miles (72 kilometers) to the east.
Learning a few common Russian words and phrases can be the difference between a run-of-the-mill vacation and a journey into the very heart of Pskov Oblast. "Xotite potancevat?" means "Would you like to dance with me?" "Where are you from?" is also useful, so try getting your mouth around "Otkuda ty?"
Be aware, if you are likely to be in Michajlovskoje around the 12th of June, Russia Day is celebrated at that time and many businesses may not be open.
When it's time to leave this special part of the world, bid a fond Poka! (farewell) to the interesting people you've met and the great places you've seen.
