Ray Cafe

I suggest starting the day with breakfast in the cafe "Luch", which is located near the hotel.

Палаты Строгановых

History Museums

Today we will visit Usolie. Here on the bank of the Kama river there is a complex of historical buildings, completely devoid of buildings of the XX century. Unfortunately, many buildings are in poor condition. But there's some restoration going on somewhere. The best view of the complex opens from the Stroganov Chamber. Nearby there are the Spaso-Preobrazhensky Cathedral, bell tower, trading rows. The building of the Stroganov Chamber now houses the Usolie History and Architecture Museum. Works Wednesday through Sunday from 10 to 17 hours.

Historic Sites

Near the Stroganov chambers there is Golitsyn manor house. There is now a branch of the Berezniki History and Art Museum. He works from 10 to 17 Wednesday to Sunday, too.


BBQ Joints

You should have lunch before the long journey. There are no places to eat in Usolie. But your further way goes through Berezniki. There is a large selection of cafes and restaurants. Pretty well fed at the Grill Bar "Montenegro".



The last point of our route is Dobryanka. Here we will visit the embankment of Dobryanka river and look at the houses located along it. Immediately after the dam there will be the Church of the Nativity of the Virgin Mary, and behind it there will be a turn to Lenin Street. There are several pockets along it. Park and go to the embankment. The embankment covers almost all historical buildings of the city. The first two-storey building is the building of the plant management of Dobryanskiy metallurgical plant Stroganov. Then there will be a local history museum building. And the embankment ends with the River Station.

You can also have dinner in Dobryanka. The cafe is cozy, the menu is small, but there's a good selection of salads and hot dishes. Have a little rest before your return journey if you don't want to wait for your home-cooked meal.
