Belaya Kalitva environs - Avil Mountains, Two Sisters Mountain, Kayal Readings

The final article about White Kalitva. It seems to be a small town, and we kept going along it and its environs 3 days from morning to evening. We could barely persuade our tireless guide finish the tour and give us a rest in order to collect our thoughts and put our impressions in the memory cells.

Avil Mountains

Avil Mountains are located right next to the town of BelayaKalitva, across the river. The mountains, of course, loudly said, but they are definitely rocks. And this, which offers a good view, and for which the most fun to climb. There is also Avilova Cave, named after the monk who once lived in it. Perhaps all this is a legend, because I am not sure that you can live in this cave.

Mountain Two Sisters

Mountain Two Sisters consists of two mountains, which Ifrom a certain angle, they recalled the ridges of two sleeping reptiles. Being directly on the mountain, one can see from above the White Kalitva, as well as the expanses of the Don steppes stretching into the distance. It seems not at all high, but the feeling of flight does not leave.

Kayal reading

Every spring in the farm Pogorelov near BelayaKalitva festival Kayal readings. Since we were at the end of the summer, we didn’t catch the action itself, and could just walk around the places where the event is held. The Kayal readings are devoted to the reconstruction of the battle, described in the book "The Word about Igor's Regiment", which took place in these parts. Thousands of people come here, dress up in costumes of those years and the armor of Prince Igor’s squad. In addition to the battle itself, a folk arts fair is held here, as well as other recreational activities.
