  • Rested in the Tver region, on the shore of the Lake the Volga and decided since we have gone so far from Peter, you must go to the source of the Volga River (were there the last time 20 years ago, the horror). Scored in the Navigator route he paved the route and off we went. The road passed through the Ostashkov, on Smith and the road in volgoverkhovie village. With informative everything seems okay pointers appear regularly so that it is almost impossible to get lost. Ran out of Ostashkov, ended and the road. I have a parketnik and I was going at a speed of 25 km per hour no more than me so strongly was shaking, so I would have seemed a washboard flat surface. The road was once the asphalt overlay and then went on the patch the patch yet and so many many times. just chilling! on this road to go 12 or 15 km road then suddenly became better right much better and could go up to a hundred. In Svapuŝe twist and end of asphalt beyond 20 km on a dirt road (good road). Reached the Volga upstream of the village as before hanging the brick front of the village, next to the village by car ride you can't walk about 1 km. But all still drive by car to the source. For 20 years, that we were not there nothing fundamentally has changed erected another Church of St. Nicholas the Wonderworker, he delivered monument a few restored the Church of Transfiguration of and probably everything. All the same House on the place so much the source of the Volga River, all the same stone (Ah the memories). Truth merchants appeared all kinds of stuff. Overall, the place is beautiful, quiet, calm. We were early in the 10:00 when people have already left, was not so quiet and cozy. Therefore, who rides for silence and come early. Of course this place is worth a visit and see how originates such a great beautiful river. We they washed their face with water, climbed the Bell Tower of the Transfiguration and overlooked neighborhood. Charge of positive energy and vitality you provided.

  • Every year we are in Volgoverkhovie village on a fishing trip, and be sure to go to the Source of the Volga River. Beautiful and legendary place. The beautiful chapel on the Istok, the first bridge across the Volga, and the first dam. The Pearl source this Olginsky monastery, now it is restored, inside already have icons and the walls were restored. Not far from the monastery on the Hill stands the chapel of the cross in it which shows that in this place originated the four rivers that flow into the sea are different. These rivers flow to the South of the Volga River and flows into the Caspian Sea, to the West the Dnipro River and empties into the Black Sea, to the North of the Daugava River and it flows into the White Sea, to the East, Lovat in the Baltic Sea. As in any tourist place sell souvenirs, mostly articles from birch, Basswood, oak. Beautiful bracelets, combs, bottles and baskets. mugs and salt shakers. Many products made from clay.

  • Find this place pretty easily, especially if there Navigator. True, the last 10 km of the road-primer. Around the dense forest. The source itself is beautiful too: in the beginning of the river stands the picturesque House from which the streamlet is the great Russian River. House, a bridge, a large stone at the entrance-all looks interesting and somewhat fabulous. More there is nothing there. From a distance, two restored (not through) the Church and, of course, souvenir market. The village has a café where you tasty rustic meals for little money, cakes and crêpes. There must try Birch kvass-very good!
