The Vyshnevolotsk hydraulic engineering system is an engineering miracle. Its ancient canals, bridges and bridges, encased in granite, have become a source of inspiration for many.
In 1703, by order of Peter I, hydraulic engineers from Amsterdam created the first system of canals and locks in Russia to connect the Tvertsa and Tsna rivers and thereby make the route from the Volga to the Baltic easier. But the invited masters suffered a fiasco, and only thanks to the solutions of the talented self-taught Mikhail Serdyukov, the hydraulic system began to function successfully. Today it is a magnificent open-air museum exhibit. The atmosphere here is conducive to leisurely walks and creativity, it is not for nothing that these regions are associated with the names of famous artists - Alexei Venetsianov and Ilya Repin. The canals, urban architecture, surrounding landscapes seem to transport us through space and time, making the trip to Tverskaya Venice so special and unforgettable.
