  • Rest all)))) the place where the fish bites itself even on a stick in children:)) rested in the last weekend of summer in the House Room 4. This is not just a vacation and the view from afar for a long time, when the eyes can not get used as, Yes, see far beskrajneju the long silence of Russian nature. If you want to come off with the head from the bustle as we spend time, relax in the sauna, take a ride on the kvadrikah with the breeze and breathe ... breathe ... You should go here. The ear of the local fish-wow how delicious)) and smoked I even smell for a mile off, and a lovely bath. Be sure to visit the desert Nile Stolbenskogo with a visit to the Bell Tower. You will see not easiest-superbly fascinating. And want to drive away demons from themselves if stick:))-call BELLS:)) wish everyone a wonderful holiday in winter, summer, spring and autumn. By the way, November we are again there.

  • Standard Lake, nothing supernatural. Fishing, boating, ice fishing in winter is all that possible. Honestly represented the Lake to the other. But really-there are places more beautiful
