The City of Smolensk
We are excited to be heading to the City of Smolensk, with a population of almost a million people and some fascinating history it should prove to be a very interesting visit. The river you are looking at here is the Dnieper River. I will be posting many pictures once we arrive and have had a chance to do some exploring. It is my understanding that there was a very heavily fought battle just outside of the city between the Russians and Napoleon’s army in 1812.
