People come to Terskol, just like to the Elbrus region in general, not only during the ski season and not only for skiing.


The name Terskol belongs both to the gorge and the glacier, as well as the river flowing from it, but for tourists Terskol is mainly the village in the Baksanskoe Gorge, the administrative centre of the recreational area of the Elbrus region.

The Patriarshiy Garden belongs to the most ancient city district of Vladimir - the so-called New City surrounded by ramparts in XII century at the time of reign of the Prince Andrei Bogolyubskiy.


The Prusovskoe Lake is called Our Baikal by the locals - for the purity of its water.


Ancient Vladimir lives peacefully on the banks of the Klyazma River, welcomes and sees the travelers from Moscow to Nizhny Novgorod and back, puffs with factory chimneys and flatters the curiosity of the tourists studying The Golden Ring.


Monakhovo stands on the coast of the Chivyrkuysky Bay washing the Svyatoy Nos Peninsula, almost at the very entrance to the peninsula. The name of the village speaks for itself - once there was a monastery here.


There are four islands in the archipelago: Bolshoy (Large), Tonkiy (Thin), Krugly (Round) and Dlinny (Long). One of the main attractions of the archipelago is the legendary Baikal rookeries of very cute and very rare seals.


When the Prince Andrei realized that the struggle for the throne of Kiev would not bring any results, he left the South Russian Vyshgorod given to him by his father and went to Rostov. Andrei took the icon of the Holy Virgin that was later called Vladimirskaya.


According to one version, the name of Svyatoy Nos was given to the peninsula by Cossack settlers, and the word nose simply means cape.


Svyatoy Nos (Holy Nose) is the largest peninsula of the Baikal Lake located in its eastern part on the territory of Buryatia.


Svyatoy Nos has a civilization of three villages.


A stay on the territory of the Trans-Baikal National Park should be paid.


Manzherok is surrounded by the mighty mountains: Sinyukha and Malaya Sinyukha. Their eastern and south-eastern slopes are covered with forests. One of the main rivers of the Altai Katun flows near the lake.


Kamenny Bay is a stone basin bordered by forests. It is always very quiet and beautiful here - the place is perfect for picnics and relaxation far away from civilization. The origin of the Kamenny Bay has remained a mystery until present day. Some argue that it was formed by a meteorite fall; others say that a landslide is to blame.


Shira is a very picturesque lake of impressive size: the lake stretches to ten kilometers in its length.


The Teletskoye Lake has several beautiful and honorable names, in addition to the main one. This water reservoir is called the younger brother of the Baikal Lake, because the purity of the water and its depth are close to the sea lake.


The Altai Biosphere Reserve occupies a vast territory in the north-east of the Altai Republic in Turochaksky and Ulagansky districts. Together with the Katun Reserve it forms the so-called Golden Mountains of Altai the natural object included into the UNESCO World Heritage List.


The first description of the Shira Lake was made by the famous traveler, Academician Peter Pallas who visited these places in 1770 and 1772.


Shira, Itkul and Shunet are only three of the great variety of beautiful lakes making Shirinsky District of Khakassia surprisingly similar to Karelia.
