Historic Sites

Ingermanland is a distant past. Nowadays, the village of Gostilitsy in the Leningrad Region. Nearby there is a small waterfall flowing from the grotto. A crooked bridge over the river, there are paving stone paths in the forest. Through the holes in the ruins of the palace you can see the Church of the Trinity of the Life-Giving.

family cafe (ХоРоШо)


The route to Ivangorod is not rich in gastronomic delights, so we turned to Kingisepp. The HoRoSho Cafe fits its name perfectly. The menu has a lot to choose from. The portions were more than we expected. Many of the interior details are handmade, which complements the positive impression of this place.

Иваногородский художественный музей

Art Museums

Provincial museum near the bus station. The bus station is closed almost always. Remember the children's illustrations from the fairy tales of the gray wolf or the roast bird? The exposition is dedicated to their author. Furniture from the Leningrad office of Ivan Bilibin has also been moved to the museum. Paying with maps in the city is quite a difficult task, but across the street there is a Sberbank building, where you can withdraw cash.

Ivangorod castle (Ивангородская крепость)


Ivangorod Fortress and Narva Castle peacefully exist opposite each other, separated by the Narova River and connected by the "bridge of friendship". It is considered to be the largest fortress in the Leningrad region. A sense of peace fills the space. The entrance ticket costs 125 rubles, payment in cash.


Pedestrian Plazas

Renovated part of the city. Stroll along the Narva River, comparing the Russian and Estonian shores. Ask the local fishermen about the catch and life. The promenade on the Russian side ends quickly enough and a narrow path overgrown with grass begins, lit by interesting lanterns.

Cafés, Restaurants

A place where you can have a snack on the way to the Pskov region. Velvet armchairs and Japanese cuisine. Provincially, but nourishingly.
