  • PLEs visit is necessary, of course! At least for the sake of appearance because modern Ples gained popularity. The main place-Quay, where there are many interesting places. In good weather and in season is very nice. But not feeling moth ...

  • PLEs-small (from 1.5-to 2.5 thousand inhabitants) town in the Ivanovo region, in which a prominent artist-painter Ilya Levitan imprinted izumitel'nejshuju Russian nature. Arriving in Ples not bypassed visit the promenade, where you can enjoy wonderful views of the great Russian River Volga. Bright summer days you can sit on a bench and watch the animated cloth Levitan. What I had done in its previous visit. The truth is that many tourists bustling hampered contemplation that populate the town at this time of year, and violate the silent beauty of nature. This time I visited the city in winter, when the white silence skovalo Volga River ice. Belejshij snow lying around, and the silence on the embankment breached occasionally passing cars, yes few getting hustled passers-by. My daily for 18 days walks start from the sanatorium Actor-Ples and ended in the Museum landscape (approx. 2 km). Right on the course are residential and other buildings that survived, and partially restored, merchants ' mansions, which give the waterfront patriarchal charm. Just above, on the Hill, visible festive Golden domes of the Church of the resurrection. In the trade area they are viewed with a decorated Christmas tree and famous beer plesskim home. Next, beautifully restored mansion-building of city administration, finally, the most famous building is the Museum of Levitan, opposite which hangs a large reproduction of most of his painting "above the eternal peace". The next building-Levitan's Centre and finally the Museum landscape. On the Hill a modest church of martyr Varvara with its beautiful bell tower. After Sunday's service, you can hear the Bell ringing, almost concert. Here ends the promenade and equally beautiful road leads to the guesthouse, surrounded by snow-covered pine trees. On the left side of the promenade road leads along the banks of the Volga, immobilized by ice. Famous cat sculpture flies, dead to save her kittens, is on the left side, as well as sculpture, titled "summer resident" numerous black dots on the Volga is the fishermen, which you can see at any time of the day. On the other side of the Volga River visible snow-covered rooftops. Leisurely step, contemplating the natural winter beauty, enjoying the silence and bezljud'em at one end, you can spend about an hour and the same back. However, you can vary the walks visiting the shopping streets, where you can purchase linen products, gifts, original souvenirs. Visit the cozy Café on the promenade Kuvshinnikovoj also

  • Arrived on the boat at 7 pm, parking was 2:00, so I wanted to see much and quickly. Photographs along the promenade have reached commercial series. Series were all closed, the Museum of Levitan was also closed. We liked this town, in preserved merchant houses. Climbed the mountain church of the resurrection. Though already and it was getting dark, we were able to enjoy the views from the mountains to Volga and PLEs, ibid. at Mount liked do Levitan. And there is a monument to the creator of Isaac Levitan. But I expected more from Plesa. No special vpechallenij Ples has not left, perhaps time was tallow for inspection.
