Uninhabited Islands for the Spoilt Tourists
September 11, 2013 17:23


The Ivanovo Oblast competes with Canary Islands and the Maldives. A small town on the right bank of the Volga River has turned into a large tourist center this summer.

Yuryevets with the population of just over 10 000 people is one of the oldest cities of the country. People come here to see the landscape depicted by Savrasov and Levitan. They also hope to understand Tarkovsky: the great director was born near Yuryevets and lived here in the evacuation.

Yachts made of lightweight white plastic, decorated with white leather and fitted with a powerful engine are most popular here. That's what old faithful vacation on the Volga always preferred by the inhabitants of the town Yuryevets can be turned into if desired.

A vacation on Asaph Islands in Ivanovo Oblast successfully competes with Canary Islands and the Maldives. The queue for a ferry has stretched for the week ahead: you need to have time to book a boat by the phone in order to get to the wild beach. The ferry costs about one thousand rubles. This market of river traffic is so attractive that every fourth inhabitant of this place has got a boat. It takes five minutes to get from the town to the nearest island, if you sail a good boat.

The Ivanovo Oblast is situated on the left, the Kostroma Oblast is upright, the Nizhny Novgorod Oblast is on the right. It seems that this place is the heart of Russia. But the islanders themselves call these places "Riga Vzmorye (Seashore)": here you can find white quartz sand, pine trees, and no mosquitoes at all. This is perhaps the first example when our spoilt tourists spend an entire summer on uninhabited islands in Russia.
