Gazpromneft filling station #605

It's a great trip, isn't it? And to make it dynamic, come to the Gazpromneft filling station, take water and a snack.


Built during the capture of Kazan by Ivan the Terrible, Sviyazhsk rises on a small island. A wooden church, built in 1552 without a single nail, has been preserved here. In addition to the church, the Sviyazhsk Monastery of the Dormition of the Virgin is also interesting here. Take a walk and see the local sights!

Fish Yard

The bream is not without reason painted on the city's coat of arms - it is a local gastronomic attraction, which is certainly worth a try.

Музей Гражданской Авиации

History Museums

The museum belongs to the local aviation school. Among the exhibits there are quite rare specimens, produced almost in singular numbers. The doors of the museum are open daily from 10 to 17.


The dishes are cooked on a classic grill and in a Russian oven. Here reigns a cozy atmosphere and traditional recipes with an admixture of brought fashionable dishes of Peter the Great from Europe.

Средний Венец


Pleasant street for a walk after a hearty dinner and before returning home.

Старый Город

Historic Sites

I suggest you take a short break before you go home. Unfortunately, no historical buildings have been preserved here, but the Kuibyshev water reservoir, on which the city stands, is remarkable. Take a short break to get home, too.
