  • Mountain-not quite mountain-Hill. We went to it from Above the monastery is a beautiful road through the Woods, along the way-large ANTHILLS and stopping places. On the mountain-worship Cross and stone, which according to legend imprinted stop PDP. Cyril. Away visible dome Kirill monastery. In spite of the weekdays, people-had to wait until we were alone and enjoy the scenery. Recommend to visit!

  • In may 2016 g. carried out the climb to the top of Forest Hill. To mount it no pulls, except in name. Car parking, unfortunately, did not have any information about attractions, administered by the National Park "Russian North". Fortunately, in the parking lot were tourists from the Moscow region (judging by numbers on cars), who kindly pointed out the direction to the top of the Hill and briefly spoke about the history of the mountains and the local superstition Maura associated with so-called trace in stone. From parking meters 3 0000 road broken machines just in the trash. Didn't have time to move away from the car park as moving us towards UAZ project "loaf" Bravo flew past us, almost over with mud. Well, of course-the same national park historic landscape conservation area. Further down the trail, first on the field, then a sharp right turn and climb on the forest path to the top of the Hill. Pointers found nowhere else! On top-a wooden cross, the stone with "fingerprint legs" venerable Cyril and traces of fire. Formerly stood here Chapel burned down. 150-200 meters from the cross is something like build a Pergola. The mountain actually overlooks the part of kirillo-Belozersky monastery, in clear weather very nicely. Beautiful places, but all very neuhozheny and abandoned. Think Park "Russian North" simply does not pulls its mission to attract tourists to the historic landscape.

  • A delightful mountain accessible to all without exception: children and elderly. Were in the winter of minus thirty-five. Snow-covered spruce shake her fabulous outfit. The present Kingdom of Berendey or Barony Frost Voivode. Through spruce, winter sun shone punching thin strips of pink on branches and snow. Silence! Even though riders snowmobile and tube-slope-it was pretty deserted. On top of the stone with the trace Sw. Etc. Cyril Of Belozero. And the devotional cross. And display the kirillo-belozersky monastery on the horizon. Even with the naked eye. This is something incredible!
