Perm Region: Gubakha
October 19, 2016 17:05


Gubakha is situated in the Perm region, in the center of Kizelovsk coal basin in 219 km from the city of Perm.

In 1755, iron ore was found on the ridge Rudyansky Spoy. This event gave rise to the formation of worker’s village at the Gubashka river (hence the name). The cross was made of the first cast iron and it was erected on the mountain, which was named in this connection as the Krestovaya. In 2011, a new wooden cross was erected instead of lost iron one on the mountain. In 1825, coal mining and mines were opened on the Cross mountain.

As Gubakha is exclusively industrial town there are no historical sites here. There is a temple of the Vladimir Icon of Our Lady on the Nikonov Street that was built in the 90s. At the beginning of the years 2000 – 2009, a temple of  Mother of God "Joy of All Who Sorrow" was built in the center of the city with bright-blue domes. It stands out against the background of faceless buildings of residence houses.

There is a Presbyterian Church on the Pravda Street. There is also a mosque in Gubakha. Despite the lack of historical monuments, many tourists come to Gubakha. There are unique monuments of nature – Temnaya and Mariinsky caves, Cross Mountain, karst bridge and karst arch here. Cross Mountain is the highest northern point of ridge Rudyansky Spoy and there is a mysterious stone city in the southern part of it. This beauty stretched for several kilometers along the river Kosva. Cliffs of whimsical shapes lined up there like houses making the 'lanes'.

Among the rocks the citizens of Gubakha like to arrange picnics and even pagan masses, leaving behind a rock "Painting". In mid-summer theater festival is held here: "Secrets of the Cross Mountain." The actors play performances right on the Mountain. In winter, Gubakha skiers are attracted by Gubakha land: the ski center "Gubakha" operates on the Cross Mountain. Moreover there is a base for cross-country skiers. There are two hotels in Gubakha: “Almaz" and "Metafrax".
