Proval'ye Things to Do

  • The Upper Precipice River

    We enjoyed walking along the bank of the River Verkhne Provalye ("the Upper Precipice River"). The picturesque river reminded me of the magnificent Crimea.

    We had lunch at the terrace of the village bar located next to the village shop.
    You can sit comfortably there after you have done some shopping in the store.
    I would recommend you to buy some local bread that is very tasty like homemade one.

    Favorite Dish: We had Ukrainian varenyky with mashed potatoes and some beer. It was great!

    You can get to Provalye from the central market of the town of Chervonopartizansk ("Red Partisan Town"), a satellite town of Sverdlovsk, located to the east of it and near the Russian border.
    Another alternative is to hire a cab by hour from Chervonopartizansk or from the bus station in Sovietskaya Street in Sverdlovsk. It's up to you.
    The cab fare by hour was $10-$15 plus you might have to pay extra fee for the distance.
    We paid the cab driver $25 for our five hours' trip, which was quite reasonable.
    In 2014 this trip would have cost us at least $50.

    The state reserve stretches to the state border of Ukraine.
    There is a small lake whose opposite shore belongs to Russia.
    You can see a pole on the Ukrainian shore with a shield and an inscription in Ukrainian,Attention!
    The state border of Ukraine.

    The inscription is the same in Russian on the reverse side of the shield.
    Of course there are no frontier troops, only the militia station in the nearest Russian village a dozen of kilometers away.

    On the way back we observed a huge cow herd at the pond located on the outskirts of the village opposite the office of the state reserve.
    It was funny to observe how the cows relaxed.
