A unique place in the Altai and all Siberia. Ribbon pine wood is called because it stretches along the river with ribbons, 5-40 km wide. It is a light coniferous relic forest. The best place for a serene walk and lovers of coniferous landscapes.
Oh, that eternal debate - pizza or pasta? For lunch, visit a highly rated establishment among locals.
At the beginning of the 18th century this building played a huge role throughout Siberia. It was in this building that the pharmacy center was located, which supplied hospitals and pharmacies with necessary medicines. Now the Museum of Altai Pharmacy is situated here - a small but very informative one. It is open every day from 10:00 to 19:00.
After a long drive, you are likely to be tired. Don't worry about dinner - stop by the restaurant in Berdsk before returning home.
