(from the poem "Vyshny Volochyok")
Not in Italy, not in Greece,
This wonderful old man.
And in Russia there is Venice -
Vyshny Volochyok ...
Such beautiful lines were described by the poetcity, it's better not to say. Then the poem speaks about native fields, and about the encirclement of the town of Tznoi, about forests more often and old canals, epic legends. All this is the best description of this region of the Tver region.
Located between Peter and Moscow, a smallthe town of Vyshny Volochek is called Russian Venice because of the abundance of canals and rivers. Little Volochek in the Tver region is a transport hub. It is 3-4 hours drive from Moscow, and on the high-speed train the journey will take even less time.
It is adjacent to such cities as Torzhok, Rzhev and Tver.

You can ride a boat or go to the forest for berries. Blueberries, blueberries, cranberries, cranberries grow in abundance here. Beautiful lakes in lilies and water lilies among the pine forests will be remembered forever for their beauty.

Many vyshnyolohane, as residents themselvescalled, live in private wooden houses, since the tree here has good quality. In the town it is still possible to pump water from a well. It is worth visiting the museum of local lore, as well as the museum of sailors-veterans. In addition, visit the glass museum from the plant "Red May", where a ruby glass was produced for the Kremlin stars. Walking around the city is pleasant, here and there the seagulls fly, and the white sand cheerfully crunches underfoot.
The map of Vyshny Volochok with the streets clearlydemonstrates that they intersect at a right angle. The town has many ancient buildings and architectural monuments. These include the Epiphany Cathedral, the building of the Magistrate, the Merchant Row, as well as the Vanchakova Line (a street with many old houses), the Kazan Monastery (female) and many ancient stone buildings of historical value.

Here everything is history, everything is natural beauty andgenerosity. The air is filled with aromas of pines and poplars, landscapes - as if from pictures of Shishkin and Vasnetsov. Vyshny Volochek, whose sights, in fact, are enclosed in its picturesque types of lakes and forests, in ancient buildings that keep the history of Peter the Great's times, lives with his modest and measured life. There is no place for idleness here. A cozy place for nature lovers and their gifts.
