  • Firstly, there are stunning, at Elabuga River (Tojmu and Kama). Secondly, this is an ancient monument, everything breathes this antiquity. And more and have nothing to say. It is a symbol of Yelabuga, Elabuga and don't see the Devil's settlement-unthinkable!

  • Unique archaeological complex "Elabuzhskoe gorodishche"-the remains of an ancient settlement of the Volga Bulgars. It is also called the Chjortovym settlement. Why? Yes, all because of the legends about a pagan temple on the top of the mountain, where he lived the serpent-Oracle, that is, the devil. But for his predictions of hell took the victim. But shortly before the fall of the fortress the snakes disappeared. See again predicted the invasion of enemies and smylsja no one saying. The settlement was founded in the second half of the first Millennium as generic shelter local tribe. In 1005-1010 was built the fortress heralded Internationally. "Centenarians" such Tower in my photo can only be seen in the old Bulgare. Now Elabuzhskoe mound is the archaeological complex of over four hectares, three rows of ancient fortified moats and ramparts, ruins of the former fortress with towers. From Elabuga settlement offers panoramic views of the Elabuga, floodplain meadows and the river Tojmu, flowing into the Kama. Perched on two hundred meters above the River, settlement is the most picturesque part of the old city.
