Bears Corner - Vesyegonsk
December 13, 2016 00:39


Vesyegonsk fits the description of a provincial town with a scent of indestructible agricultural past.

Locals themselves gave Vesyegonsk the nickname “Bear’s Corner”: it is long and difficult to get here, to the very north of Tver Oblast and the Rybinsky water reservoir.

The air in Vesyegonsk is truly magical, especially on the coast of Rybinka. The woods can boast an abundance of mushrooms and berries, as well as many animals, the waters of the bay and the many local rivers are rich in fish.

Besides, people go fishing there all year round. And the relevant service is well developed: everything - from the gear to the boat - can be rented.

The name suggests that Vesyegonsk is an ancient town with a history. Few things have remained since ancient times: the ruins of Kazanskaya Church on the Sokolova Mountain, another couple of churches, several wooden houses built before the Revolution and Vesyegonsk winery founded in 1914. The things that survived did not fall into the flood zone or were moved to a new location when creating the Rybinsk Reservoir. The feeling of “Bear’s Corner” is quickly replaced by the sheer respect for this town.
