We will stop at a house that is associated with Seraphim Vyritsky and pharmacologist Gramenitsky and recall an interesting fact from Pushkin's life on Rakeevskaya Street, as well as visit an exposition dedicated to the famous native of Vyritsa - science fiction writer Ivan Efremov. You will learn about the tapestry factory and the trading school of the merchant Efremov, see some of the oldest pioneer camps - "Mayak" and "Juventa", as well as the Vyritskaya hydroelectric power station.

Pastoral landscapes After the story about the dacha boom in Vyritsa, you will go for an independent walk. The golden Shudibil beach will give a picturesque view of the steep banks of Oredezh and the holiday village of Bor. You will be surprised by the bare roots of pines and the river will be enchanted by its run, you will learn about the extraction of Devonian sand and you will find fragments of ancient shells on the shore that glisten like rhinestones.
