Uspenskiy Vodopad

While you move along the Ob river, in Uspenka village it's worth seeing the small Uspensky waterfall on the Poros river.

Umrevinsky ostrog

Here, on the bank of the Ob River, there is a unique structure, preserved since the XVIII century. Umrevinsky ostrog is considered to be the first defensive point of the Russian state in these regions, which was built in 1703. It became a part of the eastern defense line of the Russian kingdom: this line went from Tobolsk upstream of the Ob River.
