Dendrosad in Divnogorsk

Divnogorsk (25 km from Krasnoyarsk) justifies its name (meaning wonderful): the nature here is truly wondrous, and there is a dendrological garden at the entrance to the city. This man-made miracle of nature, has the status of a monument since 1981. Over 40 species of plants grow here, more than half of which are foreigners that have successfully taken root in a new place. The novices of the Znamensky Monastery created such a miracle, then students of the Krasnoyarsk Technical School intercepted their work.

Beautiful Birch

Yes, birch is a natural monument! What is in it? - Better come to the area of ​​the Morozovka tract, which is 20 km from the village of Aban, and see! Birch is not young, for more than 70 years it has attracted travelers. Its strong trunk diameter is about 30 cm, height - almost 18 m. It is unique with its crown - lush, dense, consisting of many leaves. Its branches are arranged in tiers, like steps of a pyramid. This beauty was noticed in 1991, when birch and the surrounding area with a radius of 7 m were declared a natural monument.

Preserves of the region

Park "Ergaki" is a ridge in the Western Sayan. It is one of the most popular tourist places of the Krasnoyarsk Territory. The shapes of the mountain peaks of the natural park are whimsical and they were given special names, for example Mirror, Camel, Dragon's Tooth, Parabola. The peaks are an open-air stone sculpture museum. The most recognizable is “Sleeping Sayan” - a chain of mountain peaks resembling a sleeping giant with arms folded across its chest. Traveling along the “Yergaki” eco-track is the best way to get to know the nature of the park, enjoying its beauty.
