Necessarily buy smoked bream, in the village of vkuuusno can be not bad to eat in a restaurant, especially of souvenir pottery. Solyanka and many more. Even arrange horseback riding, shorter won't be bored!))

  • Very beautiful places, high far seen from the fortress. Excellent Lake with it into the keys. The water is pure and very tasty. Swans and ducks. Very quiet place, you can even stay on a night that will not be in a hurry and all show.
