"Silver Horseshoe" in Tatarstan - a new tourist route-analogue of the "Golden Ring" along the rivers.
Kazan philanthropist Garafutdin Khisamutdinov proposed to create a tourist route along the rivers of Tatarstan under the Silver Horseshoe brand - "Qomesh daga".
- At the Uslonsky Mountains, the Volga makes a sharp turn of 90 degrees. If you look from a bird's eye view or look at the map, you can see the shape of a horseshoe, explains Khisamutdinov.
According to him, the route he proposes, on the one hand, would be interesting and informative for tourists, and on the other hand, would allow a good rest and fun.
The route should start from Bishbalta and the Bakalda pier, which was actively used before the construction in 1957 of a new river port in Kazan. The pier had a length of 1.5-2 km. Later, it lost its original name, they began to call it "Mouth", and the Tatars sang it in songs as "Usiya".
He also spoke about the means and transport that tourists will be able to use the proposed route. So, from May to October there will be an opportunity to sail by motor ships along the river, river buses, motor boats, kayaks. In November-April - snowmobiles, sleds and hovercraft. Any vehicle is suitable throughout the year.
