Day 1: Mysteries of ancient estates

Saint Petersburg

Sergievka Park

Here you will find a mysterious stone head looking out of the ground. The sculptor of this monument is not exactly known, the only clue is the work done by F. Brower. According to the author's idea, the head was to depict a Russian warrior in an Orthodox helmet. According to one of the legends, it is known that once upon a time there was a spring above the head. After it has run out, the "warrior" began to grow in the ground. If it grows fully, the end of the world will come.

Усадьба Волковицы

Another unusual abandoned place, around which various legends walk. You will have to solve the mystery of the ancient half-destroyed tower on your own. The tower itself is a bit deep in Volkovitsy village, you can walk to it through the park on its main alley.

Церковь Святой Троицы

The ruins of the church are very much like a Greek temple. Walk around and take unusual photos.
