Who doesn’t know the historical city of Ronda in Southern Spain, famous for it’s history of bandoleros who lived in the nearby Sierras. Well, these mountains are called the Serranía de Ronda and consist of the Sierra de las Nieves and the Sierra the Grazalema, both UNESCO Biosphere reserves. This area offers a magnificent scenery for hiking.
Over the last two years I visited most of the Golden Ring, a series of historical Russian cities northeast from Moscow. Most of them are Unesco World Heritage sites. The official Russian list includes Ivanono, Kostroma, Pereslavl-Zalessky, Rostov Veliky, Sergiev Posad (former Sagorsk), Suzdal, Vladimir and Yaroslavl. I did not visit yet the first two.
