Ivanovo Region

­Cultural life doesn’t stop outside Moscow and each year more and more media-grabbing events are taking places in Russia’s various cities. On the show this week, culture vulture Martyn Andrews fills the RT van up with petrol and travels 300 kilometers to the quaint industrial city of Ivanovo also known as the “City of Brides!” There the English host and his crew visit an exciting art photograph exhibition, a fun filled fashion show, meet the local creative community and explore the fifth year of a growing international cinema festival. Cannes watch out! It seems you have competition!
