In winter, everything is much easier, you can reach the depths. In the offseason it can be dangerous. Because of the abundance of underwater springs, ice thickness in some areas may be less safe.

What kind of fish is found (and pecks) in the lake:

  • roach
  • bream
  • bleak
  • Pike
  • perch
  • burbot

Sights around Lake Plescheev

Map of Plescheyev Lakes

Pereslavl Zalessky

Large vintage city on the lake. There are many ancient temples, including the most ancient temple of Vladimir Rus, trees of ancient fortress, monasteries and museums. There is a city beach.

Be sure to find information on the frescoes on the walls of the Transfiguration Cathedral.


The most famous object of Lake Plescheyev and the most uninteresting. What only by the magic properties do not give it to the sake of attracting tourists. Visit this place is worth it for a tick.

The stone remained here after the departure of the glacier after some time it was found by local pagans, made the object of worship. Then Christianity came and the stone was lying in a ditch for a long time, from where it was dragged to the shore. Lies near the north shores of Plescheyev Lake. You need to go through Nikitskaya Slobod. It’s not to drive past – the road has a pointer.

There are no parking stones, the cars are all left along the curb, but it is forbidden. Almost in the face hanging a sign prohibiting parking, it is not visible from the stone. They say, sometimes drives the DPS car, prescribes fines. I myself did not come across. May be lucky.

To approach the stone, you need to pay 50 rubles.

This fee is not for the stone itself, but for visiting the National Park, the amount is established by law.

After the entrance you get into the corridor between stalls with souvenirs, where you are attacked on both sides. If you managed to pass without buying a ribbon, you can mentally praise yourself.

Legends of blue stone

Despite the fact that this is the most common stone that brought a glacier about 30-40 thousand years ago, we want to believe in a fairy tale and dream that our desires are performed by themselves.

Legend # 1: Blue Stone – Blue

In fact, he is not blue. It is said that the blue shade is noticeable when the stone is wet.

Legend # 2: Stone moves itself, without assistance

There is a legend (with interpretations) that once this stone wanted to use in the foundation of the Orthodox church. While we were lucky, drowned in the lake – the stone went under the ice. But after a while he "crawl" to the shore.

How to get to Myshkina from Moscow – there is no train, but there is a ferry

Legend # 3: Stone executes wishes

If you are very asked and drawing the ancient pagan spirits, the desire will definitely fulfill.

How to make a desire: On the stone you need to leave a small gift, candy or coin. Then mentally ask the stone so that the desire is. After that you need to tie a ribbon on a nearby tree. Ribbons are sold in souvenir shops next to the stone.

Legend # 4: stone treats diseases

If you make a silent place to the stone, the disease will definitely leave.

What would you believe and whatever your thoughts go to the stone, remember: Nadya’s stone, and not the bad. All this is just legends, and sat on the cold stone is unlikely to add you health.

Petra’s first boot

Hence the our fleet.

This shore of Lake Plescheev, 2 km from Pereslavl Peter I chose for the base of his fun flotilla for the base.

The first water descent took place here on May 1, 1692.

Ships were built here and on shipyard in Pereslavl. Now there is nothing left of the Pereslavl shipyard, she was located between the Znamensky Church and the Bank of the River Truzh. Tsar at that time lived in Nikitsky and Goriensky monasteries.

In the Znamensky Church, in Soviet times there was a wine shop. Locals So I remember.

In the museum there is a real Botik Fortune, made by the king. This is the only one, the preserved vessel of a fun flotilla of the king.

There are several other private museums on the territory of the Bem:

  • Pavilion Rotonda
  • White Palace
  • Near the Museum of Gramplastinos

Walk to the lake and habitats of local birds.

Entrance is free, no one, beautiful, silence and peace. The trail begins from long parking from the north side of the lake. The route comes to the shore of the lake, then turns back. Just about 1 km.

Activities on the Plescheev Lake


About hiking (ecological trail) I already said it in the surrounding forests. They, here, by the way, very beautiful. If you go to the Museum of locomotives, not the expensive, where everyone goes, but to turn in the Kupansky earlier on the old road, then go through the high pine forest. There is very beautiful.

However, just a couple of kilometers closer to Pereslavl will be endless fields overgrown with a borevik height of three meters.

People are engaged in the Miscellaneous Lake People are engaged in windsurfing and kaiting (kaitsurfing). There are places where lovers of these sports are usually going to.

Because of the wide shallow water here is convenient to beginners.

There is an equipment rental station, she is a school of kiting and surf Surf-Pont.

Diving on the lake is not particularly interesting. Monotonous bottom – or rare vegetation. Interesting objects on the bottom no. Visibility is good.

Due to the features of the bottom profile, enter the water more convenient from the vessel or from ice. On one of the diversional sites, the point with coordinates N56º 44.512 ‘E038º 45.788 ‘is indicated as the most interesting for dive.

Boat rental

You can rent a boat in many recreation bases.

For example, rental is in the bases:

  • Urev
  • Plescheyevo
  • Sphere

There is a summer cafe on the banks of the river in Pereslavl Zalessky. It is in the center near the Sergiev Bridge. You need to turn to the Plescheevskaya street and immediately on the left there will be a square, in it cafe. On the other side of the street parking opposite the city administration. Immediately in the only building at the corner of the Rostov and Plescheevskaya streets in the old building there is a cafe La Foret, it can be navigate.

In addition, there is still such an organization: http: // Sailing catalog.RF offering walks on the sailing catamaran on the lake. Can take fishing.

Information on other sites, including tourist pereslavl and recreation sites on which the event will be supposedly undergoing may not fit true. They just attract tourists.


From Wikipedia:

Plescheyevo Lake – Morny Freshwater Lake in the southwest of the Yaroslavl region. It is part of the National Park "Plescheevo Lake".

Moray Lake – Lake Educated in Morane, that is, in the relief, which was formed when the glacier was melted.

  • Lake Square – about 51 kV. KM,
  • Paibol length 9.5 km (from the mouth of the river Truzhnya to exit from the Lake Vices River),
  • Maximum width of 6.5 km (along the line of Solomidino village – the village of Gorodishche),
  • Maximum depth – about 25 m,
  • The middle depth – 11 m,
  • Water volume – 0.58 cubic meters. KM,
  • Waterborne Pool Square – 436 kV.KM.

Divers say that the maximum depth of the lake is 26 meters.

Plescheyevo – the second lake of the Yaroslavl region (after Lake Nero) and the 246th Lake of Russia in the area of ​​the water mirror. The age of the lake is about 30,000 years – then there was a period of late Stone Age.

In that period, there were several types of people on Earth: Neanderthals and Cryanonians were not extinct. They saw Plescheyevo Lake not as it looks now. At that time it was larger and the water level was higher. Traces of the ancient shore are still visible from the north side of the lake. High hill where Alexandrova Mountain is now – this is the original coast.

The name of Plescheevo probably comes from the word to splash.

The most famous period in the history of the lake is the period of the fleet of Peter I.

For the first time, the king came here in July 1688. He already had a small fleet in Moscow, but there was not enough space.

Shipyard stood on the banks of the river. This is in Pereslavl. Where now the Museum of the Botik Peter I (at the village of Slahko) was a palace for receiving guests, several workshops and shipyards for small vessels.

From shipyard to the lake conducted channel. He still has been preserved called Voznesensky ravine.

Plescheyevo Lake is a beautiful natural place, I hope the guide will help you find a place to stay in a tent or at the recreation center and will introduce the sights of the lake.
