Ruins and nature

The journey starts from Krasnoselsky district, where you will find an abandoned factory settlement and the ruins of the palace of Emperor Alexander I. Spend your lunch in the countryside in the coolness of a pine forest, to the sound of a murmuring stream. And don't forget to visit the nearby N.K. Roerich Manor. Wander around and find the building of the Agricultural Colony School, the Trout Tower and the ruins of the former lime factory, where giant kilns have been preserved. All this is a reminder of what the village of Izvara was like in the past.

The second day of the trip will be equally exciting. You will visit an abandoned mansion with the strange name "Consolation" and the closed church of the Holy Virgin. And of course lunch is a picnic in the countryside with a magnificent view from the cliffs of the Devonian.
