Rest in the middle lane is an opportunity to arrange a little time out without a tedious road and a significant impact on the wallet. An amazing region harmoniously combines fascinating beauty of nature, a favorable moderate continental climate and rich history with lots of interesting sights.
Moscow, Tver, Ryazan, Vladimir, Smolensk, Tula, Yaroslavl regions – it’s nice to rest here at any time of the year. In this case, you do not depend on the work schedule of the visa center, insurance company or airport, on the dancing exchange rate and language barrier. And yet – do not fear acclimatization (an obvious plus for travelers with small children!).
Going to the open spaces of the Russian province, you follow the golden rule of healthy recreation – traveling “from winter to winter” and “from summer to summer”, which means you are not undermining your immunity. Rather, on the contrary, you strengthen your health, especially if you choose a boarding house or sanatorium, which involves, in addition to traditional rest, various rehabilitation and treatment programs.
No wonder the middle zone of Russia is called a real climatic resort!
A voyage to the central part of Russia is above all a rest from the bustle of the city. People come here to get clean air filled with aromas of herbs and needles, behind the clear water of rivers and lakes, beyond endless fields and silence – in general, for peace of mind.
Most recreation areas are located in picturesque places – on the banks of the Volga, Oka, Don, Dnieper, Western Dvina. Yes, many rivers of the middle belt cannot boast an amazing width of imagination. A restful, discreet beauty, evoking thoughts of Alyonushka from a picture by Vasnetsov, will most likely appear to the eyes of the rest.
But isn’t this a special charm? Connoisseurs of traditional Russian landscapes will be delighted by the famous Meschersky forests – a paradise for active recreation.
On the territory of this protected area is now located many camp sites that offer to participate in cycling routes and kayaking in the summer, and in the winter – to admire the beauty while walking on skis.
The middle lane is the “face” of the Russian province, which in some places completely preserved the architectural appearance of the XVIII – XIX centuries. Her cities and towns are rich in sights, so intellectuals can easily relax rest and admire natural beauty with interesting excursion programs around monasteries and temples, old manor houses and thematic museums.
Of course, the main pride of the Russian province is the famous Golden Ring. Rostov, Yaroslavl, Vladimir, Suzdal, Sergiev Posad, Uglich – each of these cities has its own unique atmosphere.
True, in order to fully penetrate her, you will have to walk a lot, so it’s better to go here with older children who can withstand long walks. And parents traveling with kids should first of all visit Myshkin and Pereyaslavl-Zalessky. In the first one, a full-fledged program was prepared for them, including a visit to the unique and unique in the world of the Mouse Museum and the Russian Valenki Museum, as well as a tasting of delicious pancakes and pies.
The second option, more “intellectually charged”, is suitable for families with preschoolers (and especially with boys). In Pereyaslavl-Zalessky, in addition to traditional thematic and handicraft museums, there is a Museum of steam locomotives, where you can not only see everything, but also touch (and even ride!), Peter the Great Museum and even the Museum of cunning and ingenuity.
A lot of interesting things can be found outside the Golden Ring. Lovers of the animal world will undoubtedly be interested in the Voronezh region, where you can visit a beaver nursery and chat with live beavers, or go to the horse stud farm, the homeland of the world-famous Orlov trotters.
Those who wish to diversify the peace in nature by visiting architectural monuments are advised to take a closer look at Seliger and Valdai, where famous Russian monasteries and churches are located in close proximity to protected areas affecting grandeur and magnitude.
The majority of us associate a regional boarding house or a rest house with boring Soviet-era buildings with a worn-out number of rooms, state-owned kitchen, a common dining room and Friday discos with a retro look. Fortunately, there are more and more places where you can relax today enjoying the service of the European level.
We will tell about one of them.
Event-hotel “Konakovo River Club” is located 120 km from Moscow, in the place of the Tver region, where the Ivankovo reservoir spread, called by the people of the Moscow Sea, spreads to the fullest extent. Wherever you look, there is water everywhere: a seven-kilometer coastline and a magnificent panorama of the Volga delights the eye from almost anywhere in the country club.
But the creators of the unique recreation area didn’t seem to be that much: the developed network of artificial channels literally approaches the ownership of the private sector of the club, repeatedly increasing the sense of closeness of the water and opening up vast opportunities for entertainment. Yes, this place is ideally created for lovers of fishing, water sports and those who, having to spend their weekdays and weekends in the urban jungle, yearn for water!
And those who prefer to stand firmly on their feet on the ground, will appreciate the dense deciduous forests spread out along the banks of the reservoir – a real treasure of nature with rich mushroom, berry and hunting grounds. It will have a great time and connoisseurs of secluded relaxation, and lovers of noisy outdoor activities in the fresh air.
“To feel at home in a hotel, and in native walls – just as comfortable as in a high-class hotel” – this was the motto of the club’s creators. In the Konakovo River Club you can stay for a few days in a 4-star hotel complex in a well-equipped room or in a rented cottage, carefree using the services of a first-class European service.
And you can become the owner of your own apartment on the river bank or a plot of land in the private sector of the village. The opportunity to enjoy all the pleasures of a hotel holiday: a developed infrastructure, service and rich leisure facilities – while this will continue!
It remains only to choose an apartment to your liking – a hotel room, a cottage, a townhouse, or even a house with a Russian bath on a separate island, where you can retire from everyone.
The territory of the Konakovo River Club is a space without borders! Here you will not see high fences, no matter what territory you are in – the “private” sector or hotel. Around – only the sky, water and space.
Communion of holidaymakers with nature and with each other is not limited by anything, therefore in “Konakovo” a creative and friendly atmosphere always reigns. Contributes to this and the original style of the architectural ensemble of the club.
Extravagant and provocative, he will surely be liked by active and creative individuals.
Rest in “Konakovo River Club” is an opportunity to escape from the bustle of the city and stay in harmony with nature, at the same time not indulging in entertainment. The hotel offers an incredible amount of sports and leisure activities for every taste: cycling marathons and “trips” on the ferry, fitness and spa, art festivals and concerts, a yacht club and a sailing school, a variety of tastings and even its own “fashion week”!
Real expanse awaits in the Konakovo River Club kids of all ages. The children’s club “Kapitoshka” organizes leisure activities for kids. At the disposal of the little guests of the club are a children’s island, a cafe, a mini-farm and a zoo, playgrounds and trampolines, and even a special “stocked” pond for children’s fishing.
And all this is not just in the fresh air, but against the backdrop of amazing nature and in good company! In the meantime, children frolic under the supervision of sensitive animators, parents have the opportunity to spend time arranging a romantic rendezvous at a restaurant or with a breeze taking a ride on a boat.
Mom can pamper herself with beauty treatments at the spa studio or beauty salon, visit yoga or pilates, and dad can play a game of billiards or visit a sports bar with friends.
