How about some pancakes for breakfast? Not only are they served here, but it's the pancake menu that's worth special attention. A lot of different kinds to suit every taste.

Nature Preserves

Next to the town there is a large reserve, where most of the bison are protected. Be sure to take an excursion so that you can go where you are not allowed without a tour, and see animals close by. Apart from bison, there are bison, deer, wild boars and rabbits, which can also be seen if you are lucky - the reserve is quite large.

Пляж р. Ока


In the warm season, you can relax by the water and take a swim in the Oka while you're around. If the weather doesn't allow, on the way here you'll pass through the village of Pushchino, from where you can enjoy beautiful views of the river, as well as there are places to walk and what to visit.
