Road Trip Categories:
Day 1: Park Pekhorka, lapta and towns, Kolokshinsky Istukan, Dyukinsky quarry
Today we'll be on our way to Goose Crystal. On the way we'll have a look at the balashikha park (surprisingly stylish and cozy), then we'll visit an agricultural farm where we'll learn to play with our hands. Under Vladimir we'll visit Kolokshinsky statue, and the sunset we'll meet at the edge of the most beautiful quarry in the surroundings.
Day 2: Piestra is a land of pristine nature.
Meshchera National Park is an area of 110,000 hectares. Tourist objects are scattered throughout this area tens of kilometers from each other. Let's try to conquer at least a small part of the reserve, exploring three ecological paths.
Entrance to the trails is paid, but it costs a penny: 50-100 rubles. You can use the services of a private guide - he promises to show the habitats of waterfowl, the oldest villages and abnormal areas. The cost of his services is 1000 rubles per hour (if on his car, it will be cheaper). You can leave an application for the tour on the park's website or by phone.
Day 3: Kayak fusion on the river Pra and ancient Kasimov
Most of today will be rafting on a kayak along the Pra river, which is called the pearl of the Mieszczar region. On the banks of the river there are a lot of equipped parking lots for rest. The shores are high, forested, and there are comfortable sandy beaches somewhere. The river is calm, there are no rapids - only sometimes there are small rubble. After the rafting we will go for a night in Kasimov - a town with an amazing history, which deserves a separate trip.
Day 4: Bisons and cranes in Oka reserve, Drunken forest, Terekhovskoe ancient settlement
In the morning we'll go to Oka State Reserve early - to get acquainted with cranes and bison. After that we'll visit Tsiolkovsky's homeland and wander through the "Drunken Forest" - an amazing natural monument.
Day 5: Adventures at the airport, Old Ryazan, beautiful beaches of Oki
In the morning we will go to the local airfield: parachute jumping, soaring in the air tube and test small planes. In the afternoon we will visit the manor of Ludwig von Dervis, where they say they shot everyone's favorite Soviet film "Cinderella". Then we will visit the ruins of Old Ryazan and enjoy the steep banks of the Oka, which keep thousands of years of secrets. In the evening we will arrive in Ryazan, where we will sleep.
Day 6: Ancient fortified settlement, White Mountain, racing track.
The final day of the journey will be filled with new experiences. In the morning we will visit the place of the ancient Ryazan city on the high bank of the Oka, then conquer the "snowy" mountains near Moscow. Finally we will go in for extreme sports on a modern racing track "ADM Raceway".
