Old Town in Chusovoi

We'll begin our journey with the town of Chusovoi. The most interesting part of it is the Old Town. Here you should walk along Lenin Street, which is built up with Soviet-era houses. Once you've reached the end of the street, turn to the crossing. Matrosov Street starts behind him. There are original Soviet-built houses on it, too.

Café "Hi, lunch!"

At the end of our route on Matrosova Street there's a cafe called Hello, Lunch! It is open from Monday to Saturday. If this cafe doesn't appeal to you, there's a cafe next door called Magnit.
