Tula is one of the oldest cities in Russia that has been founded in 1146. It is not only an industrial center but also a cultural point. Tula is a world famous place because of her once glamorous resident-the famous Russian writer Leo Tolstoy who lived at Yasnaya Polyana, which is just ten kilometers away from the town.

Moreover, Tula is famous for its gorgeous Samovars, the grandfather of the contemporary electric kettle.


Being an old city, Tula preserved a number of splendid churches and cathedrals and the Kremlin.
