Description of Divnogorye

Divnogorye or Divnogorie is located in the Voronezh region, 130 km from the regional center and 12 km from Liski. Divnogorye - Cretaceous plateau, towering tens of meters above the surrounding forest-steppe. The name of the area received from the "divs" - chalk pillars and remnants of geologic formations that formed on the bottom of ancient seas that once covered this area. In 1991, the territory of the plateau received the status of a museum-reserve.

Unusual chalk formation, magnificent views of the Don and Silent Pine that flow down below, rare for Russia monasteries and churches make Divnogorye one of the most interesting sights of the region. The best time to visit is from May to September, in dry weather.
