The Imperiia Project: a spatial history of the Russian Empire


I would like to call them "river-mountains" (my own fabricated, childish, and highly unscientific term). They rise in limestone and chalk, a hundred feet from the river. The Shtchutchi, Undariski, and the Gorodishtchenski Hills (I had an acquaintance write down the names on the back of a napkin at lunch just as we passed a series of wooded islands).

Otherwise the river is hemmed by pastures.
