For this trip participants need to be in Moscow July, 20.

Deadline for payment of the trip – June, 22. REGISTRATION FOR THIS TOUR IS CLOSED

We suggest a field trip (2-nights, 1-day) to Yaroslavl city.  The tour group is limited to 20 participants. Our destination point is a depository of Russian superdeep drilling cores (including the 5-km-deep drill core of the Puchezh-Katunki impact crater and the super-deep Kola borehole). In addition we plan to visit the adjacent museum where microscopes can be used to study thin sections of the best samples. Although Yaroslavl is a very nice old city and the capital of the Russian Gold ring, we do not plan extensive sightseeing. For those, who are interested in Russian history and architecture, but not in geology of impact craters, we do not recommend this trip. Instead, you can visit this city by yourself.

We plan to depart from Moscow on Friday (July, 20) late evening and return back to Moscow on Sunday (July, 22) afternoon. Travel time from Moscow to Yaroslavl by train is approximately 3 hours. We have booked rooms in Ring Premier Hotel in the center of Yaroslavl (http://ring-hotel-yaroslavl.ru).  The final tour price is 14000 RUB per person (accommodation in shared room). This includes transportation Moscow->Yaroslavl->Moscow, accommodation for two nights and all scheduled visits.
