The most important step in unification of Rus was almost 200-year rivalry between Moscow and Tver for leadership in this process. Looking at today's provincial Tver with its population less, than of Makhachkala, it is difficult to believe that it successfully challenged superiority of Moscow and could have become the capital of Russia if things . In 1317 Tver forces even defeated the Muscovites on the battlefield, but very few people know this episode and even less who have seen the place of this battle.

We invite you to go there together with us – on the way to the ancient Staritsa where we are awaited by labyrinths of amazing caves, we will certainly make stop on the Bortenevsky field and recall the fate of St. Michael of Tver’, martyred for such a glorious victory.
