he beginning of spring, and I continue the story of the fall trip to the Volga and the Urals, and today is the first part of the report from the city of Orsk.

Most people who come to Lake Baikal, go first in Irkutsk region - this is the west coast of Lake Baikal. But also its eastern shore has many beautiful and interesting places.

In this article we will talk about the Goryachinsk village in which I have been in the summer of 2013.

Fergana city was founded in 1876 and until 1907 and its name was New Margilan. From 1904 to 1927 it was called Skobelev, in honor of the Russian General M. Skobelev, the conqueror of the Khanate of Kokand and the first head of Fergana Region. Later, Skobelev had become the hero of the Russian-Turkish war of 1877 – 1878 as well. For a long time Fergana city remained as the city of officials and the military. After the Soviet power came, an industry began developing that significantly weakened after the collapse of the Soviet Union. Currently, the city is the administrative center of Ferghana region, its population of 350 thousand people (in the area of 3,350,000 inhabitants).

Trip from Andijan to Fergana takes about an hour away by car. On the way I thought about how difficult it was for me to change money in the bank. One of the passengers commented my words:

- Yes, we have problems with the export of the country's currency, and just with its purchase of the bank. But this has its advantages. Our officials are more difficult to export capital from the Uzbek. And the turnover of money in the country is clearer...

This past summer we decided to visit the Pskov and Novgorod, near which we found Vyazhishchsky Monastery that is near the village Vyazhischi of Novgorod region.

It was founded at the end of the XIV century by monks Euphrosyne, Ignatius and Galaktion. The first mention in the annals is - 1411.

In 1411 St. Nicholas Cathedral (made of wood) was built. In 1419 a wooden church was built in honor of St. Anthony the Great. In 1458 in the monastery was buried its tonsures, Archbishop of Novgorod Euthymius.

In the XVII century the monastery had the patronage of the first kings of the Romanov dynasty. In 1670-80 respectivelyit was added Nicholas Ponedelsky and Spassky Syabersky monasteries. The initiator of a radical restructuring of the monastery at the end of the XVII century was Bogolep Sablin (from 1683 to 1697 - the abbot Vyazhishchsky Monastery), which is characterized by contemporaries as a man of ambition, well-known in Moscow and who had close ties among the higher clergy.
