Ovsyanka village


The quiet village of Ovsyanka is located near Krasnoyarsk. It is worth coming here for the cultural and natural component. The village is famous for the fact that Viktor Petrovich Astafiev, a Siberian writer, a man of a big soul and a strong spirit, was born and lived here, which can also be seen in his works. There is a museum complex dedicated to Viktor Petrovich in the village, it includes the writer's house-museum, where the authentic furnishings and personal belongings are pserved, as well as the museum of the story "The Last Bow", which Astafyev had been writing for over 30 years. This museum is also called "The House of Grandmother Catherine". M. Gorbachev, B. Yeltsin, V. Putin, A. Solzhenitsyn, N. Mikhalkov and other famous people visited this village house. It is worth starting the excursion with it.

Where to have a snack?

We recommend taking a snack with you as there are no cafes or coffee shops in the village. But! There is a Mechta shop and a bakery where you can buy freshly baked pies and buns with different types of stuffing, as well as several types of brown bread (even fruit), which you can take home with you. You can find a bakery by smell. But we still give the address: the village of Ovsyanka, st. Naberezhnaya, 71. The same descent to the river is just a few meters away.
