Travelling To Voznesenka Village
December 17, 2016 21:38


It is not easy to reach Voznesenka: you may choose only a bus from Uchalov as a public transport. The problem is that the bus runs once a day and there are no hotels in the village.

The village of Voznesenka strikes the approaching travelers immediately and from a long distance: a huge seven-headed stone Cathedral of the Byzantine style stands in the Bashkir province, among the nearly pristine nature - the mountains, the valley, the lake. It is ragged, but still magnificent, rising above the roofs of the village houses. By this cathedral one can guess that Voznesenka is historically a Russian village and that it had seen better days. Now there are no more than five hundred people living here, Russians and Bashkirs, almost in equal parts. Real wilderness reigns around: it seems as if they have not heard about asphalt roads, there is no transport or communication with the “Mainland”, almost no work, men traditionally drink strong alcohol. It remains only to recall the distant past, when the nearby copper mines and gold mines were feeding the entire population of a huge village, almost the fifth part of them have survived until today.

Pieces of original malachite can be met not far from the village, across the shallow creek, on a rural road beneath the feet. Further away there is a local curiosity: the mysterious ancient pyramids. No one knows who created them and why they were placed in such area.

Only one thing is clear: pyramids are man-made. They are built of stones in the shape of an equilateral triangle. Their sides are oriented to the cardinal directions. However, part of the pyramids is destroyed, and the survived pyramids do not look impressive: they are about two meters high.

It is not easy to find them without any help as they are lost in the woods. You need some help of either the locals or the guides from Uchalinsk tourist and sports center on the street Pervostroiteley, 38.
