The Ryazan kremlin was founded in 800 by Slavic settlers as a part of their drive into territory previously populated by Finnic peoples. Initially it was built of wood, gradually replaced by masonry. The oldest preserved part of the kremlin dates back to the 12th century.

Due to its close location to Moscow (three hours by train) modern Ryazan has a boisterous nightlife. Every weekend local clubs and pubs host euro-dance, house and occasionally RnB parties. Clubs like Sunset, Maska, Molotov, Cosmic and Fusion cocktail hall had gained popularity among Ryazan upscale youth and some foreign students. Newly launched restaurants Nebo, Paravoz and Carroll also host irregular parties.

Be ready for lots of military uniforms: no less that 3% of Ryazan's population is employed by the army. The city is home to several major military centers, and to a large extent the army - along with ordinary folks and intellectuals define the character of the city.
