Expedition to the terem at Pogorelovo


Located in the forest, 20 km from Astashovo, is another terem built by a seasonal peasant worker at the beginning of the 20th century. In terms of its historical and artistic value, it is truly the crown jewel of our area. Here, the terem’s untouched early 20th century interiors with exquisite paintings on plaster, carved decor, and stained glass windows have been preserved.

It’s not easy to get to Pogorelovo, but it’s worth it. As a rule, you must leave your car and walk the remaining 2.5-4 km on foot along the forest road and scenic meadows. Our guide will show you the way, and, with the owner’s permission, will give you a tour of the terem.

There are expeditions to Pogorelovo all year round but they don’t take place every day. The excursions are usually on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, and may take place on other days upon agreement.

If you need a transfer, you can order it separately. We set off for the excursion from Astashovo after breakfast, at around 9:30 a.m. Excursions are conducted when there are at least 4 guests participating.

You can also make your way to Pogorelovo by snowmobile/ATV (must be booked separately).
