Russian birches

This birch grove is located right nearby the houses of the North-West district of the city of Chelyabinsk. On a hot summer day people like to walk along the paths of the grove, listen to the birds singing and enjoy the bright colours of summer. Many residents of the area come to the grove with their families or just alone. Someone organizes a picnic for friends and someone just wants to become sunburnt. When you unexpectedly see horses, a strong feeling of close contact with nature comes.

The grove smoothly turns into the forest, which stretches for tens of kilometres. In summer and autumn you can collect mushrooms and berries there, and in winter you can enjoy skiing.
