TOP interesting places in Chusovoy, Perm region

Tourists should definitely visit Chusovoy - a small town in the Perm region. It was founded in 1878 on the banks of the Chusovaya river of the same name. The rapid flow of the river, the Ural Mountains, magnificent natural attractions - all this has made the city a popular destination for sports and ecological tourism. Fans of excursions and cultural recreation also like to come here. Without visiting local museums of history and ethnography, not a single trip around the city goes.

What to see in Chusovoy in one day

A tour of Chusovoy, as a rule, begins with its main tourist sites. Below are certainly the most interesting places that have become symbols and pride of the city. You can visit them in 1 day.

Ethnographic complex "Park of the history of the Chusovaya river"

  • Address: st. Drummer, 30.

The Chusovaya River History Park is the main attraction of the city and a "magnet" that attracts tourists here. The ethnographic complex is an open-air museum. It was founded in 1981 at the foot of Mount Arina. The initiative to create the complex belonged to the honored cultural worker Leonard Postnikov.

The exposition of the museum is dedicated to the peasant life of the XIX-XX centuries. It is made up of old peasant buildings that were transported to the park from the depths of the Chusovsky district. Historical buildings have retained their original appearance.

Among them you can see a smithy, a pottery, a trading shop, a fire tower, a village theater, chapels and several residential buildings. All buildings are made of wood in the style of Russian architecture. They are decorated with traditional carving, kokoshniks, half-columns and tents.

The interior has been recreated with authentic household items dating back to the 19th century. The museum works according to the principles: "we keep everything that we can" and "it is imperative to touch with your hands." All excursionists must hold and touch the museum exhibits without fail.

The Chusovaya River History Park is a venue for folk festivals, animation and costume parties, as well as literary events.

Chusovaya River

  • Coordinates on the map: 58.87267, 57.19431.

If you want silence, stars, a snowy forest and touch the history - go to the village of Sloboda, which stands on the glorious Ural river Chusovaya.

It's not far away - only 90 km, about an hour and a half by car and 2:20 by bus. A ticket from the Northern Bus Station will cost 284 rubles.

Another option is to get there for 1:40 and 131 rubles. by train, but you will have to walk another 3.5 km from the Kourovka station to the village. "Lastochka" is 20 minutes faster and 35 rubles. more expensive, but in terms of arrival time it is not very convenient for excursions: at 19:16 in winter it is already time to look for a place to sleep.

How the history of the village of Sloboda began

The Sloboda was founded in 1651 and at various times was called Chusovskaya, Utkinskaya, Kourovskaya Sloboda and even the Sovereign's Duck. The variety of names is associated with the location of the settlement - it stands at the confluence of the Utka River into Chusovaya. The name of the river Utka, in turn, comes from the Mansi "duck" - water. "Chusva" is translated from Komi-Permyak as "fast water".

At the beginning of the 18th century, ore was found in the vicinity of Sloboda, and already in 1702, by decree of Peter I, the first state-owned pier on the Chusovaya was set up at the mouth of the Utka River to send iron caravans. In the spring of 1703, more than two centuries of history of the Chus alloy and legendary iron caravans began here. Chusovaya becomes the main transport artery of the Urals.

In Soviet times, a collective farm was formed in Sloboda, in 1934 one of the first tourist centers in the Urals was opened - the famous "Chusovaya". In 1965, an astronomical observatory was established near the village.

No matter how you arrive in Sloboda, the path will lead you to the bank of the Chusovaya, to the pedestrian bridge and the white-stone church. Take your time to cross the bridge, admire the panorama of the village and the church on the rock.

St. George's Church was not closed even in Soviet times

In 1801, the wooden St. George Church, which had already burned several times, burned down in a terrible fire, and a white-stone church in the name of St. George the Victorious, called St. George, was built in its place. It was consecrated in 1831, and the bell tower was completed only in 1894.

Since then, the church on the bank of the Chusovaya, staring into the sky, is the decoration and the main attraction of the village. It was not closed even in Soviet times - thanks to a letter from the villagers transmitted to the "All-Union headman" M. Kalinin himself.

The intercession, however, did not prevent the arrest and exile of the priests, or the removal of bells from the church bell tower in the 1940s.

Burials of the 19th - early 20th centuries have been preserved in the inner fence. Go into the fence and walk to the river bank, views of the Ural expanse and Chusovaya - this is the main thing on a trip to Sloboda.

Evgenia Pryakhina, who has studied all the nooks and crannies of the Urals, tells how to find Demidov's masonry, ride a canoe and look at the stars with minimal costs and as quickly as possible in one day.

In order not to think in three months that you spent your summer senselessly and saw nothing but barbecue at the dacha, I suggest that you save this text to your bookmarks and next weekend go on a small trip around Pervouralsk, which will leave a lot impressions. To start it, go to the farthest point of this route - the village of Treka, which is located 97 km from Yekaterinburg.

Treoka Village

"Welcome, good people." It is this inscription that meets everyone who steps on the pedestrian suspension bridge across the Chusovaya. Only with the help of it, the village of Treka, cut off from civilization, communicates with the "mainland".

In the first years of the village's existence, there were numerous Old Believer monasteries here. Later, workers from the Verkh-Isetsky plant lived. In 1891, a huge fire broke out in the village of Troke, which destroyed 44 courtyards. The victims of the fire were rebuilt and still live here, farming and harvesting willow tea for sale. According to the 2010 census, only 40 people permanently reside in Troek. The rest are summer residents.

Treoka's most notable building is a two-story wooden house. In the past, it housed a school, club, library. Now the building is abandoned, it stands without windows.

Stone High

There are several limestone cliffs near Treoka. The most beautiful of them is called "High Stone". The way from the village to Vysoky Kamen will be 2 kilometers on foot along a dirt road.

Above (it is 30 meters high) a beautiful view of the river flowing below and its surroundings opens up. In the 19th century, on the right bank in front of the stone there were powerful mooring posts - "grip". Barge haulers hooked on to them ropes to stop the barge and moor to the shore for the night or make a temporary stop. The route of the famous "iron caravans" from the Ural factories ran here.

Lower village

Chusovaya is the legendary Ural river with amazingly beautiful nature and rich history. The Cossack Ataman Ermak with his retinue, who went to conquer Siberia, wandered through these places. During the spring flood barges with the products of the Ural factories fought against these stones, not in vain nicknamed by the fighters. We invite you to embark on a fascinating journey along the route where every stone, every turn of the river keeps its own history.
