    More about the town...

    by Lalique Written Oct 10, 2002

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: More info from MT:

    One of the most beautiful places to camp is Lake Pleshcheyevo , the main attraction of the Pleshcheyevo National Park in the south of the Yaroslavl region.
    Located near the historic town of Pereslavl-Zalessky, the lake covers more than 51 square kilometers and is traditionally included in Golden Ring tours. It is fed by 19 rivers and streams and has shallow water for 200 meters from every shore, making it a pleasant swimming spot in summer and ideal for windsurfers.
    Pereslavl was founded by Prince Yury Dolgoruky in 1152, five years after Moscow. Since then, the town and its lake have played host to many of tsars and leaders, starting with Alexander Nevsky, who was born here in 1220 and is commemorated by the St. Alexander Nevsky church in Pereslavl.
    At the end of the 17th century, Peter the Great built a training fleet of boats and galleys on Lake Pleshcheyevo. Unfortunately, the fleet was devastated by a fire in 1783, and only one boat survived. The boat, which is known as "botik," or Peter's Boat, is exhibited now in the local museum.
    The area's peaceful landscapes also attracted Ivan the Terrible in the 16th century, Vladimir Lenin in 1894 and Tsar Nicholas II in 1913, during celebrations to mark 300 years of the Romanov dynasty.
