Pereslavl-Zalessky

   
 
 

Only the name of this ancient country town fascinates and attracts at the same time. As if it invites into this old Russian fairy tale-true story that lives at present time.

The history of Zalessky land was born somewhere many ages ago. Its first stages - the going away of last glacier, appearance of taiga and rivers with their different inhabitants, and as a consequence - coming of first people.

The biggest stand from a great number of ancient settlements in the Neolithic age was situated on the east coast of lake near the creek of the river, later called Trubezh. Nowadays this place is known as Pereslav- skaya Rybnaya Sloboda (“Fisher settlement”). It represents the oldest part of the town, the nook upon the river - favorite place of artists, with weeping willows reflecting in water and ancient wood huts along the banks.

The other stand of old inhabitants was situated on so the called Bolshaya Pesoshnitsa ("Big sandbox") - the bank of the same river, where Trubezhnaya Street is. The evidence of it are finds, such as broken pieces of crockery with ornaments and many animals bones.

Hilly north-eastern lakeside of Zalessky lake, called Kleschino in ancient times, was all times attractive for people. According to archaeological researches in IV century of our Age this coast was settled by Finno-Ugric tribes merya. In IX-X centuries during the move of people from south to northeast of Russia the Slavs came from Novgorodskaya and Pridneprovskaya lands.
