Best Time to Visit Vyshny Volochyok

Vyshny Volochyok is famous for its canals which perfectly mix with the picturesque nature of the Valdai Hills.

The climate in the area is moderately continental, which means not very cold winters and warm summers.

The average temperature in January is -10 ° C, and in July + 20 ° C. A visit to the town without a walk through the canals would be incomplete. You can rent a boat or catamaran at the boat station, near the place where Tveretsky canal begins.

History

The settlement on the place of the modern Vyshny Volochyok was founded in 1437.

In 1703 Peter I decided to lay a canals system through the town, which was completed in 1708.

An interesting feature of Vyshny Volochyok is the fact that there is only one traffic light installed here in the entire town. A cypress shrub is growing in front of the estate of Serdyukov that lies on the banks of the Vyshnevolotsky water reservoir on the western outskirts of the city. They say, it was planted by Peter I himself when he visited these places.

Unfortunately, it is not easy to get into Kazansky Monastery. The Monastery opens its doors only during the services on Saturday nights and Sunday mornings.

Channels

A visit to the town without a walk through the channels would be incomplete. You can rent a boat or a catamaran at the boat station, near the place where Tveretsky canal begins.

A cypress shrub grows close to the Serdyukov’s Estate which lies on the banks of the Vyshnevolotsky water reservoir on the western outskirts of the town. They say it was planted by Peter I himself during his visit to these places. Unfortunately, it is not so easy to get in Kazansky Monastery. The monastery opens its doors only during the service on Saturday nights and Sunday mornings.
