  • Wanted to tell you my impressions about the rest on the Zhizdra River. We went with my family 4 July this year in district d. Gordikovo on the territory of the National Park Monmouthshire. Upon arrival all places were simply overwhelmed with debris, mud, one had to scavenge and re-organization. After installation of tents decided to go off to fetch water in the spring and we suffered another problem-it silted up, had to borrow a shovel and 2 hours to clear. The water approach is not possible everywhere 1.5 meters above the nettle that would swim had overcome great at the following distance day we pulled up the employees of the National Park and discharged us permission to stay (price per entry machine and rest 2 adults and one child was 500 rubles per day) to our questions about who must scavenge and oblagoustraivat territory said that not they, but the money with campers gather. Poradyvalo the only one that this year many berries and in the rest of the vacation was spoiled.
