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.


Mineral resources were found on this land before the appearance of any settlements. Tanalykovo-Baymak was founded in 1748 as the ore base of Kananikolsky and Preobrazhensky copper-smelting plants.


The city was founded to protect the Russian borders after the conquest of Kazan by Ivan the Terrible.


It is not easy to reach Voznesenka: you may choose only a bus from Uchalov as a public transport.

At first glance, Kimry is not much different from any other neglected provincial town with a rich history: the entire town is now represented by the remnants of the old buildings craving for capital repairs.

In XVIII century the Novgorod Governor-General Yakov Efimovich Sivers wrote to Catherine II that Ostashkov was the second Venice. The Russian Venice is situated on a peninsula cut into the clear blue waters of the Seliger Lake.

There is a feeling that the town stands right on the water.
