Despite the lack of snow, Ryazan literally from the first second took the baton. They organized a large-scale parade of Santa Clauses and other beloved New Year heroes. Over 2200 people took part in this action!
The parade was led by Santa Claus from Ustyug, riding in a white convertible. The participants reached Lenin Square, where they all gathered in the end: our characters met with guests from Yakutia. From this moment the fun begins: a fire and laser show, a flash mob of dancing, a festive concert!
Ryazan received many guests from different regions of our country, which is not surprising, because it is famous for historical monuments and attractions.

We paid special attention to the treats: they chose a guelder-rose with a festive taste. This is a dessert made from rye, wheat and bird cherry flour, the filling is made from viburnum jam.
Drinking was also given the honor to present “Taste of Ryazan.” The drink of the same name can be ordered in cafes and restaurants. It is prepared according to an original Russian recipe: from St. John’s wort, Ivan tea, ginger, sage, eucalyptus and thyme.

A report from the moment of “birth” of Ryazan has been going on since about the 11th century, just with the arrival of the East Slavic immigrants. At first it was called Muromo-Ryazan land, later from which the Ryazan principality stood out. But after the destruction of Old Ryazan (the capital) in 1237 by the Tatars-Mongols, as well as the subsequent invasions of nomads, its place in the principality was taken by Pereyaslavl-Ryazansky, which was founded, presumably, in 1095. (To be more precise, the first mention in the annals refers to the above date). In 1521, it became part of the Moscow state, and in 1708, in the Moscow province. But then it was renamed to Ryazan.
In the XVII-XVIII centuries, the territory of the state gradually expanded to the south and east. Ryazan Territory became the central province of the Russian Empire.
