Bird of prey nursery

Near Sysert, in the village of Kashino, on the territory of the recreation center "Owl" is a unique Bird of prey rehabilitation center. The centre offers visitors exciting excursions where they can get to know eagles, hawks, falcons and owls. The excursion lasts about one hour, it is better to record in advance, all information on their [site](https://www.holzan.ru/contacts).

Ruins of the Church of the Holy Apostle and Evangelist John the Theologian

For lunch stop by the village of Tyubukskoe or simply Tyubuk. The Cossack village is more than 300 years old, it has a monument of historical and cultural heritage - once a majestic stone church, built in the XIX century in the style of classicism with baroque elements, now ruined. Look inside (you may have to do it through the old window, as the entrance is covered with planks) and see the preserved frescoes.

Ancient paintings on the "Stone Tents", rocks of bizarre shapes that appear as sphinxes, knights, cows, and pyramids, and a wonderful view of the lake. You can drive on concrete through the village of Red Partisan, and further, as the broken primer begins, on foot.

Бессонова гора

Another iconic Ural elevation on our way. The time for the visit is already later, we will examine it from the car window. Some interesting facts: here were found traces of an ancient man, this mountain has a lot of legends, which mainly boil down to the fact that at the top live demons, which is where the name came from. But today they are protected from them by a large cast-iron cross mounted on the top.
