  • It is better to visit in warmer months. It is interesting to stroll through the caves, swim to the boat and ride the rope over a lake.

  • Another approach, from afar, visible large rock beautiful marble, all obihozheno, scattering crumbs were in March, cute flashlights, belvederes. Ever be even better are restaurants, but better would be ennobled, parking for car. Away communication with Husky for is 200rub. Souvenirs are expensive, and in principle or anything special, marble magnet 400r. Travel across Russia, the place is very beautiful, I advise you to visit.

  • Have long wanted to visit the Mountain Park and finally the permit was purchased! Stand up 4 in the morning to take a taxi to Zvenigorod and on a comfortable bus (as minibus) from leaving the city. Go for quite a long time, but on the road were stopped. The Park was very beautiful, picturesque, clean and fresh.;) But the dress was clearly warmer (September). The excursion was not very interesting, almost nothing is remembered, except, of course;). Ahvenkoski-beauty! And Karelian wickets very delicious with cheese.;) Time for a walk was much photos sea impressions good;).

  • One of the most beautiful places in Russia. This is a real place of power.
  • must see
  • Very pretty unusual. There is a café, souvenir shop, clean restrooms. Extra fun in the Park: boating, dog sled excursion in underground mines, etc. bring Pro stock money to Park enough for all desired.

  • Mysterious place. It is a pity that the Lake was stiff with ice. I want to enjoy them. You'll have to go back!

  • Nature, equipped trail. It will be interesting to all. Trolls over the quarry-400 metres! All rekomduem. Night lights-worth what would come specifically for the sake of it.
