In the southern part of the Rudyansky Spoi ridge, on the territory of the Gremyachinsky region, there is a group of bizarre stones called the Stone City. Millions of years ago, a large river flowed here, which made its way through the rocks, made of sandstone. Later, the ancient channel rose, and under the influence of tectonic processes and weathering, it acquired a bizarre shape, reminiscent of the walls and streets of the city.
The "city" is cut by deep and wide "streets" along which tourists can stroll. The place is suitable for rock climbers, who can create many interesting routes here.
