Located on the Turgoyak lake, this island has always been famous for its legends. It's said that Russian Orthodox Church old believers and monks used to live on this island in stone huts. Yet the truth surpasses any expectations. Archaeologists have found out that the old believers only used these buildings for their rituals instead of living in them. But, even before the old believers came here, other people would also come to this island for tens of thousands of years to worship their gods. Evidence of that are numerous places of worship found on this tiny island.
The Ignatyevskaya Cave
The rock art in this cave is what truly makes it unique. The cave paintings have been adorning the walls and vaults of the cave for over fourteen thousand years. There are so many paintings, in fact, that this cave is often called the oldest art gallery.
A mysterious ancient fortified city of bronze age. According to archaeological data, it thrived somewhere between the second and third millenium B.C. Considered as part of
the Arkaim - Sintashta archaeological culture, a peer to the pyramids of Gisa and ancient Babylon, this city is ancient compared to Rome and Troy.
