Bicycle tour "The desert of the Holosievo forest"

Level: beginner
Duration: 1 day
General distance: 30 km

Probably you would be quite confused if you have already imagined the camels, wandering through the desert sand-drifts. According to the Orthodox tradition so called "desert" or skete is monastic settlement, which is far away from the main monastery. There are three of them in Holosievo: Holosiyivska , Kytayivska and the most mysterious one - Serhieyva deserts. The monks have chosen these places as the local deep forest has dozens of secluded by-corners hidden from the daily routine and curious eyes. Even today you can easily stray in the forest among plenty of paths, which flow in various directions. Fortunately, the forest is surrounded with stads, so that finally you will be lead out of the deep forest. The point is that you don't know where exactly you will be lead to. So many surprises and mysteries are waiting for you in Holosievo: park of M. Rylskyi and the ponds "Horihovatski"; the desert "Holosiyivska"; the desert "Kytayivska"; main observatory of National Ukrainian Scientific Academy; Holosievo gills.
