    Stop at the art object "Valley of the Hares"

    The Valley of Hares is a place that is open to both adults and children. And what can impress more than a rock with a thousand hares?

    The artist Sergey Gapanovich set a goal to carve 1000 hares on a rock, now he has already managed to embody about 600 hares. 

    Everyone will find for themselves the reason why hares live in the valley, and perhaps they will want to become the owner of a new big-eared animal on the body of the rock.
