We will take a walk along the lake shore amidst huge boulders. The rocks have an extremely bizarre shape, and you can see portraits of ancient atlantes and giant mushrooms in them. As it turned out in the course of archaeological excavations, these rocks of ancient people had a sacred value, even if it were, because they look very impressive.

The Kyshtym dynamite plant was built during World War I. About a hundred years ago there was an explosion at the plant, after which the building was not subject to restoration and was abandoned. Here you can take a walk in a mystical atmosphere amidst half-destroyed walls. Over time, a small pond was formed near the building - a picturesque place, here you can safely come to the artists in the open air.
