Tulberry town ethno-ecological museum-reserve

Tulberries - the ancient Turkic-speaking people, who came to Siberia long before the appearance of the Russians, lived here - in the territory of the Reception for a long time until today. The main feature of the museum is considered to be the medieval ritual fortified settlement Gorodok, with a well-preserved rampart, moat, remnants of burnt-out residential buildings, metallurgical workshops and a cult altar, which belonged to tulibers - the aborigines of the Rechithuania. Weekend: Monday.

Leninsk-Kuznetsky Local History Museum

One of many cities in Siberia, founded during its active development. Not so long ago the city celebrated its 250th anniversary. Leninsk-Kuznetskiy is the first settlement named after Vladimir Lenin in his lifetime.


Not far from the next location, in Belovo we stop for lunch. The menu includes salads, first courses, pilaf, shawarma, khinkali, pasta and other dishes. We eat, have a rest and gain strength for another portion of historical and ethnographic facts.

Cholkoi Historical and Ethnographic Museum

The Kemerovo region is famous worldwide for its coal Kuznetsky pool. Kuzbass. Of course, such a large-scale, region-forming enterprise could not remain without a museum.

Lake Tanai

After all the interesting stories, myths, legends, irrefutable and not very facts, there is nothing better than a walk in silence along the lake. That's what we'll do. There's also a ski resort nearby, so if you still have the strength...

Tanai Café

At the exit from Churavlevo, a village near Tanaevo, we stop at a cafe. The menu includes Russian, European and Uzbek cuisines. Dinner, socializing. And without rush we go straight to Novosibirsk.
