Honestly, I don't know.

I'll think up of a semblance of a valid reason to visit this hole of a place. What if I market it as "genuine" and "un-touristy" and "unrecognized treasure of a city" if that goes down well with you, the gullible traveller. A factory town in the state of economic and political crisis - that's what Tver is. Your typical blank Russian faces on the streets. Burning dumpsters. Groups of leather-clad young men in street corners. Yuk.

The location between Moscow and St. Petersburg is great however. And take a short side trip - and you are in the City of Staritsa, and the famous leaky wooden boat will take you across the Volga to the Village of Dubrovki, where I live if that can be called a living. And that's when your trip has a chance to acquire a measure of meaning in the form of $25/person/day contribution to my silly project in exchange for a place under the roof, access to primitive washing facilities, and the questionable pleasure of getting on top of agricultural animals and making them move around aimlessly.
