What awaits you
Uncharted surroundings of Serpukhov I spent many years collecting information about my region and understanding how it all looked before and what kind of life was in full swing here. You cannot imagine how unusual and thoughtful the mechanism of the mill was! Nearby, it turns out, lived one of the inventors of the telephone! Waterfalls are fantastic for our latitude! And what discoveries we made with friends, comparing old maps with modern ones! I am ready to show all this during a leisurely walk. I know the area well, so adjustments to your interests and mood are possible along the way
Historical fragments of ancient and recent years First of all, we will go to the important monument of Protvino - the memorial "Line of Defense", once a place of fierce battles. From there, along the path to the river and through the suspension bridge we reach village Yuryatino … Here you will see an old dam with the ruins of a five-story mill of the 19th century in a brick style and hear about its creators - the Bobrovs merchants. And then I will introduce you to the history of the ancient settlement Spas-Gorodetsthat rises above the bank of Protva. And I'll show you the 6-meter giant mound left from the Vyatichi
Natural wealth of the region I will also take you to the Kaluga Niagara - an unusually high waterfall for these places, hidden in a small ravine, among spacious fields. And later you will discover two more lovely specimens in the gully by villages Ershovo … And, of course, all this time you will be accompanied by the views of the fabulous forests and the banks of Protva
