Old Vesyegonsk
May 18, 2017 11:50


The name of the town hints that Vesyegonsk is ancient and has a rich history. Not many things preserved from old times: the ruins of the Kazanskaya Church at Sokolova Hill, a couple of small churches, several pre-revolutionary wooden houses and Vesyegonsky Winery founded in 1914.

The buildings that survived managed to escape the area of flooding or were moved to a new location upon creation of the Rybinsk water reservoir. A sense of “a bear’s corner” quickly gives way to a huge respect to this town.

The love of its residents to their land is felt everywhere: clean streets, a touching Museum of Local History on the territory of the ancient Winery with the statues of Roman gods and modern Italian equipment.

People here strictly adhere to fishing rules. Using electrical rods is subject to severe condemnation, up to serious consequences. Due to the effect of such rod,s fish becomes unable to reproduce and is gradually dying out, the water reservoirs become empty.
