The first point of our journey is the city of Berezniki. The city was given life by salt mines and later by salt mines located along the Kama and under the central part of the city. A walk through Berezniki will start in a triangular square. It is located in the very center on the corner of Lenin Avenue and Pyatiletka Street. At the intersection of Lenin Avenue and Sovetsky Prospekt there is a pocket where you can leave your car and go for a walk in the city. The square is quite small, but quite well-groomed and cozy. At the entrance to the square there is a monument to forester Valentin Mindovsky.

Lenin Avenue

Then we go for a walk along Lenin Avenue. This is one of the main and most beautiful streets in the city. Opposite the triangular square from which you just came out is the Avangard Cinema, an architectural monument. Further along the street will be Lenin square, which overlooks the buildings of the Historical Museum and the Lenin House. Then on one side of the street will begin the City Park of Culture and Recreation. This is the next point on our route.
