Kurgan

Gazpromneft filling station #322

The journey begins! For a smooth trip, we recommend stopping at a gas station - fill a full tank of quality fuel, pump up the tires, buy aromatic coffee and snacks on the road.

Pokrovskaya Church

We begin our journey with the village of Cagapolier. Here is the Pokrovskaya Church. It was founded in 1821. In the Soviet years, the church was not in operation. And it reopened in the 2000s.

Landscape Park in Cargapolia

This is one of the best parks in the Kurgan region. It has a great variety of trees and bushes, there is a small pond with an arch above it and a pine memory alley along which there are pedestals with the names of the heroes of WWII.

Shadrinsk center

Zagorodnyy kompleks Salyut

Confectionery "Sweet Fairy Tale"

The pastry shop is located in a kiosk on Komsomolskaya Street. Here you can try the branded Shadrin gingerbread.

Church of Sorrows in Kataisk

Built between 2007 and 2010. On the square near the church there is a rowan alley, an alley of fame and the Palace of Culture "Luchesar". The palace building has a complicated history. Before the revolution it was the Epiphany Church, but the Bolsheviks rebuilt it first as a cinema, and then as a palace of culture.

Соборная площадь

Plazas


Kamensk-Uralsky was founded here. Not far from the square was located Kamensk-Uralsky plant, from which the city went. The square overlooks the cathedral, drama theater and local history museum. Go to the pedestrian bridge from the square across the Kamenka River. It overlooks the dam of Kamenka pond.

Maminskoye village

The village has a lot of old brick houses. Unfortunately, many of them are in desolate condition. There is a temple of Archangel Michael in the center of the village. It was laid to commemorate the victory of 1812. Next to the temple on the Gabiyevka River there is a small pond. It is unusual because its plum is made on the rock. This decision was made after the dam of the pond washed off twice. On the outskirts of the village on the right bank of the Iset there are ruins of a power station and a dam.
