The national capital Moscow is located 110 miles (177 kilometers) southwest of Petrovskoye.
Of course, visiting just one place, no matter how popular, will only ever furnish you with a limited view into the wider rhythms and life-ways of a region. So allow time to explore Tver Oblast's other sights and attractions. Interesting places in the vicinity of Petrovskoye are Kriushkino, 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the northeast, and Pereslavl-Zalesskiy, 25 miles (40 kilometers) to the northeast.
Drop into Tver Oblast's historically significant historic bridges, it's an excellent way to gain an understanding of the region's colorful past. Take a trip to Tver Oblast's theaters, art museums and craft workshops. These are great destinations to hang out, especially on overcast or inclement days.
Pack your gear or rent some when you get here, and get out onto the water. Canoeing is a popular activity. Another good option is boating.
Take the time to learn some Russian and communicate with the locals in Petrovskoye. "Xotite potancevat?" is the Russian way to say "Would you like to dance with me?" "Otkuda ty?" means "Where are you from?"
When it's time to return to your friends at home, you'll be bidding Petrovskoye a fond and teary Poka! (farewell).
