Drive to the dense forests – Day 1: One day in the forests of the Moscow region.

Today we start our trip to the nature of the Moscow region. There are quite a lot of wooded areas, so we plan to go east and make a few stops in the most quiet and remote areas.

Пляж на озере Бисерово


Not so far from the exit from Moscow, on Lake Biserovo, there is a rather picturesque and not very crowded beach. Almost all the territory around the lake is occupied by forests, as well as occasionally private plots are located near the water. Most of the places for walking can be found on the southern coast, where there is both a beach and a deserted grove.

Лес в Купавне


Near the lake Biserovo, on the southern border of Kupavna district begins a fairly large and dense forest, where we walked. Moving further south, we came across a small lake where locals were fishing.



After the walk we moved on, and the next stop was the small town of Electrostal, where we stopped at the Café Entresol for lunch. Among a large number of different dishes and snacks we liked beet ravioli, as well as cream soup made of cauliflower with pork breast.

Новый сосновый лес


The evening was approaching as we were approaching the small village of Plotava. A little before we reached it, we decided to make a stop to walk in a pine forest, which is located at some distance from the track. There are village houses along its borders, so you can find mushrooms in the forest itself. And in the area of three hundred meters from the road begins a thick forest, where sometimes there are small meadows.



Passing the small town of Orekhovo-Zuyevo, we found ourselves in a village called Snopok Novy. On its outskirts there are medium size quarries, the east coast of which is a large sandy beach, and on the south is an impenetrable thicket.


Cafés, Restaurants

Tonight we were to spend the night in the small town of Shatura, so we went to one of the local cafes called Veranda for dinner. The prices are democratic, the interior is pleasant in the style of Provença and the orange pinkie is delicious.
