The current tourist season in the natural parks of the Volgograd region was not the most widespread for obvious reasons. But even in such conditions, promising projects for tourists continue to develop. About the most interesting of them and prospects for the next season - in the review "AiF" -NP ".
Everyone remembers well that the opening of the 2020 tourist season in the natural parks of the region was postponed due to the pandemic. However, the employees of the institutions have been actively preparing to receive guests since April-May of this year.
So, in the Donskoy park, a recreation area was set up near the village of Tryokhostrovskaya, next to the ferry crossing. The place is popular with locals and visitors to the region. There are magnificent views, excellent fishing, sandy gentle shores, a forest by the water. And now more people will be able to relax and fish in a civilized manner in a wonderful corner: this year the territory for tents and barbecues has been expanded, new gazebos have appeared - by the way, they are made exclusively from environmentally friendly materials. The equipped recreation area can accommodate up to 250 guests at a time.
Another natural area that is famous throughout the country is the Volga-Akhtubinskaya floodplain. In this natural park, at the Bakalda parking lot, gazebos and barbecue areas were additionally installed, as well as the beach. And now it will also be able to receive more guests.
“A few years ago, the staff of the park equipped a resting place on the banks of the Verblyud river,” says Natalya Lopantseva, a representative of the State Institution “Natural Park“ Volgo-Akhtubinskaya Poima ”. "This experience has been recognized as a positive one, and now we continue to equip other places."
Entrance to the territory of green parking lots is paid. The amounts are small, they are charged for the use of infrastructure, garbage collection, repair and construction of small architectural forms.
The pearl of the floodplain is a lotus lake near the village of Krasny Buksir. It attracts tourists not only from the Volgograd region, but also from outside it. Delicate pink clouds of flowers are striking in beauty, but in order to admire it, tourists previously had to go down narrow paths on steep slopes, risking twisting their legs at any time.
This year, by the efforts of the staff of the natural park, decorative paths and slopes to the water near the lake were equipped, information boards were installed, so now it will be much more convenient for guests.
During the summer, kayaking took place in this natural park.
