Around Moscow in 6 days: forests and reserves

Trip duration: 6 days

Alexandr Kosar

Ресторан "Петр Великий"


In order not to lose a lot of time, we decided to go for breakfast to the already well-known to us "frigate", located in the eco-park Yukhnovgrad. Several cakes, as well as a glass of orange juice in the morning came in handy.

Заброшенный Мост


The first stop for today was the Ugra River coast near the bridge that leads to the A130 highway. We decided to walk along the northern bank, where in addition to descents to the river, there is also an impenetrable forest thicket, where we also went.


Sculpture Gardens

On the territory of the famous Ugra National Park, the art park Nikola Lenivets is famous for its unique art objects as well as for the incredible nature around it. Those who want to spend time here can spend time fishing, walking on the river or in the forest, as well as see architectural objects made of natural materials. Next to the installation "Firebird" on the lake shore there are two cafes where you can have a snack or a full lunch.

Best Western Kaluga Hotel



Well, at the end of the day we decided to visit one of several sand quarries far from Kaluga. There are several beautiful beaches here, as well as quite a large forest near the coast. You can also take a stroll along the banks of the Ugra River.

Gazpromneft filling station #76

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

Восточный Базар

Eastern European Restaurants

East Bazaar is a very cozy, spacious and modern restaurant in the heart of the city. It is difficult to say for sure what kind of cuisine the restaurant has, because here are prepared and European, and Russian and oriental dishes. For example, we liked boiled tongue with horseradish, and veal with mozzarella homemade.
