Saransk is the capital of Mordovia, a mosaic city with an astonishing blend of different cultures. The reason is that since the dawn of time, the land was shared by three nations: Russians, Tatars and Mordvins. The charming provincial scenery of the city stands juxtaposed with majestic architectural monuments, and the Orthodox temples stand alongside the characters of Mordvin mythology.
The locals revere tradition and are tickled by innovation. All of the indigenous harmoniously intertwines with the rest. This would be one trait worth taking away from a visit to Saransk.
