  • A typical path in the usual forest of Central Russia. From the top, nothing can be seen, slopes overgrown with trees, as is written on the site of the Park "Russian North". I do not recommend.

Went down and marveled the beauty and the little miracle, very interesting, drank from the spring, organised on the territory of the monastery, talked and drank herbal tea, we kindly invited. The extraordinary beauty of the place, especially in winter when weather is sunny. All excellent mood and excitement!

  • Previously, Maura was famous for the Chapel, but now the chapel burned down and in its place there was only Grand Cross (status St 2016). However, if you visited the town of Kirillov and its monastery, and mount the aura you should make time. First of all, it's a good walking trail along the way offering wonderful views of the landscapes, particularly enjoyed the unusual for our forests Juniper Heath (will call it so). The best kind, of course, from the top of the mountain on the kirillo-Belozerskiy monastery. In addition, this site and religious pilgrimage-according to legend, Saint Cyril here came the idea of founding a monastery and on the spot where he stood, supposedly preserved stone with a thumbprint of the legs, and the fingerprint is considered useful ensue. Important: do not wild in this adventure after several rainy days, trail blurs scary, utonete in the dirt. Choose the days are sunny and dry.
