  • Went to this place with children. Get easy, anywhere there are pointers. There is a parking, a small café. Before the reserve there is a museum with his stuffed animals. It's certainly not the Darwin Museum in Moscow, but also interesting. True, a little strained note guide about stuffed boar: "do not touch, they are from 1957 onwards, there are a lot of ticks. If this is true, it could alienate them, that children do not touch. If this is not true, then why would scare children? The reserve allowed only with a guide. Guided tours every hour. Adult ticket 400 rubles. Children are treated free of charge children. To reserve you need to pass a 700 m walk. The reserve entry and exit only with a guide in the truest sense of the word (the door locked with a key). Inside the reserve you need a lot of walking, about 1.5-2 km. The whole tour is a track between the huge corrals. When the bison may be next, or may go deep. We were lucky. Many bison and bison at the end and turned around the fence. Although, as we have learned from the Guide are guaranteed close sits just one. The rest is as lucky. At the end there is an observation tower. Also on the road met the cage with white a marmot. Our children loved it. However, they are very tired 2-2.5 km back and forth on heat-it's not easy. Overall, the tour took 1.5 hours. The Guide talked a lot, but some old Soviet-style museum guides. I.e. information primarily for adults. Considering the monotone voice, the kids lost interest very quickly. As a result, the Museum next to the Guide has only a third of the group. In reserve he requested to walk beside him so nobody disagreed. Yes, you will not be here by yourself. In General, the trip went well, but it could have been much more interesting if organizers tried to!

  • Many attracted by the prioksko-terrasny nature reserve, but in vain. If you want to enjoy nature, it is better to visit for free the surrounding forests. Immediately you for quite a large sum, accompanied by low the Guide (well maybe we got this, I will not say about other), will walk on heat do spend way between lattices of bison. Bison and bison grazed primarily vglubine forests, so even with the observation tower they were not particularly prominent. Near rests lazily only young Yes a couple of females. Inter-EE-Cho, even breathtaking. And children and even more so, they just by this time are beginning to ask for drink, whining that tired feet etc))) in the reserve there are shop with souvenirs and old Soviet museum with dusty stuffed. It is clear that the reserve is not enlightening, and security purpose, but it's still something. Before (as our enlightened Guide "in dashing 90-е") reserve arranged trips for small groups on its unique terraces with different climatic zones. Now that was really cool! Now, "fatty 10-e" is stopped. Stupidly decided to beat the price for watching a herd of lazy cows. Dear gentlemen!

  • We visited the Nursery at the beginning of August the weather was sunny and we had a nice walk in the woods. It's very easy to spot the bisons and if you are lucky enough you can even see their calves...  more »
