Пляж «Тишково»


Our little nature trip will start with a visit to Tishkovo beach. It is very close to the village of the same name. Its shore is surrounded by a small forest, where those who do not like to swim and sunbathe can go for a walk.

Голыгинский карьер


Next stop is Golyginsky quarry, which is relatively close to the village of the same name. There is a small picturesque lake, which is a favorite place for recreation and fishing among locals. The landscape here is very memorable thanks to the unusually beautiful blue color of water.


Gastropubs, Bistros

A small cafe "Svoi" in Sergiev Posad is perfect for lunch. Here you can cook a variety of American and European dishes and snacks, among which, for example, we liked the classic burger "Joe to Meat" with a cutlet of marble beef. The pork chop with potatoes and the chicken thigh in punko breadcrumbs with teriyaki sauce are also noteworthy.

Troyka Hotel

Ваулинская плотина


In the afternoon we are also heading out to nature, and the next stop is the Waulinskoe Reservoir. There are several small marinas for fishing and diving in the water, also on one of the banks of the reservoir - not very thick forest for those who like to be in the shade.

Дендрологический сад


Already in the evening, on our way to Pereslavl-Zalessky, we made a stop at its outskirts to visit the local dendrological garden named after S. F. Kharitonov. As we were told at the excursion, there are about 600 species of different plants on its territory. Here you can rent a bike, as well as walk along thematic routes.

Альбицкий сад


Cozy restaurant of European cuisine Albitsky Garden is the place where we decided to spend our evening. Its interior is made in a very elegant and luxurious style. The dishes prepared here also look very beautiful and original. We remember the cottage cheese pie with berry filling and salmon steak with teriyaki sauce.

Troyka Hotel

The day was very lively and intense. We discovered a lot of beauties in the Moscow region. Tomorrow we will go west to the city of Dubna. On the way there we also expect to stop in some picturesque places.
