  • Single hike in February took about two hours. As usual in movement "that" side was longer back-in short, somehow turns move back faster. The machine can be put at the bridge and at the Church. Beautiful building in the graveyard now restore. Near-mass grave of Soviet soldiers. Five years ago at the tomb of the 21-year-old Olga voenracha Leont'evoj standing cross, taken from somewhere. sovestkaja is still grave. Cross is now removed, graves led "in order", apparently in honor of the anniversary of the victory. With ogradkoj and lists knocked out in stone. Olga Leont'evoj, a whopping two portraits and commemorative stone ... Further down to the left of the road (cemetery-right) and behind the houses of local residents (paths are!)-former mill. Cliff immediately visible stone Foundation dams on both sides of the river. Right-the right bank of the river abandoned millstones. Next, on the right bank (left is populated and too cool)-Lomonosov bridge. It's an old 19 century bridge on the former Arkhangelsk tract. According to a legend this road Lomonosov walked into the capital for knowledge. Cobbles, but in winter has been preserved it is not visible. And bridge-still not lomonosovskiy, as academician walked in the 18 century, 19 bridge. However, it is still romantically))) for bridge-bridge new, reinforced concrete and high. Go to it, there is a staircase. From the bridge view of the Canyon of the river of lava. And here you can see the cliff-those most outputs ordovikskogo and Cambrian age. In them, if you dig a little, just a few minutes you can find remains of Trilobites is long like pipe stems, tracks, excellent color to the rest of the breed. It's their limbs and bodies, which were food and tentacles and legs. And yet the fossilized seashells. Mesmerizing! Further on at the Canyon is surrounded by steep cliffs to the waterfall and climb up next to him. In the village of city-views from the cliff and the ancient (dopetrovskoe) city-frontier outpost. Here was the fortress guards Fusiliers. The Lava was the border with Sweden. When Peter pushed it further. Mound gradually went into decline and from the fortress with its substantial surrounding settlement remained a tiny village. Within the old fortifications visible caponier. The impression that this is an artillery positions of the WWII. Cliff, species. Return to the Church and approach the cliffs and on the other side. On the road leading to the track "Cola" standing yellow "Lava River Canyon"

  • Amazingly beautiful place ... thinking person will crack from the Rapture))) Completely did not expect such beauties. usually on photo priukrasheno. Come and razocharovyvaesh'sja. Here, on the contrary-the photo does not give a full impression. Now (May) of water in the river lot and it's very rough, so it happened to pass only a small plot, but even this is enough for vivid impressions. First passed a little upstream from the bridge to ruins from mills, then no. then went down, there happened to pass a larger plot. Beautiful at every step. Oh and does without a spoon of tar-those who live next to the garbage dump blankly from behind a fence on a slope and into the river. I don't know who should be so shamelessly spoil ...
