December 5, 2016 12:43


The famous “town of the flooded bell tower on the Volga River”.

The average January temperature is 9 degrees below zero, and 17 degrees above zero in July. Air humidity is increased, especially in spring and autumn.

Fishing fans can enjoy their hobby at the fishing and sporting centre “Sknyatino” which is neatly located at the confluence of the rivers Volga, Volnushka and Nerl. Here and in the nearby lakes you can find the following fish species: roach, nerfling, perch, pike, pike-perch, catfish, burbot.

River banks in these areas are rich in mushrooms and berries.
