    Try to be silent while walking around in the forest and you might be lucky to see the sweet squirrels around here.

    Exit into the unknown!

    Loose yourself in the park and exit into the datscha area and walk back that way to the railway station. Ask people for directions and observe a bit of non-touristy stuff.
