We check-in in the hotel, leave the bikes at the parking and go for a walk around the center of Tula, and we will also visit the Weaponry museum. Did you know that Tula is famous for the weapons?

Day 2. Tula – Kulikovo Pole – Ryazan, 300 km

In the morning we go the new museum Kulikovo Pole. This is the museum dedicated to the big battle of 1380 between Russians guided by Dmitry Ivanovich and mongols. This battle is now called Mamaevo Poboische or Poboische on Don. After the lunch we go to Ryazan and see Kremlin and historical places.
