On the Dru’t River, surrounded by mixed and coniferous forests, the Chigirinsky Reservoir was lost. This is a great place for fishing, outdoor activities and quiet seclusion. On Chyhyrynka has something to do at any time of the year!
Chigirinsky Reservoir was established in 1960. And now more than 50 years of his water work at Chigirinskaya Hydroelectric Power Station . However, this does not prevent the reservoir from being an excellent place for recreation and fishing.
As for the latter, fishing at the Chigirinsky Reservoir is popular all year round. Pike, bream, perch, roach are found in the pond. In August, at the Chigirinsky Reservoir (on the so-called “Moscow shore” near the village of Grudichino), even a celebration of fishing lovers “Big Bard-fishing” is taking place.
Chigirinsky Reservoir is also an excellent place for rowing, water-motor sports, catamaran and boat rides. The northern shore is the least popular among tourists, which has recently become much more overgrown. The maximum depth of the reservoir is 8 meters, the bottom is silted. The reservoir freezes in early December and keeps ice until early April.
Chigirinsky reservoir is difficult to feel for one day. Therefore, on the banks of the reservoir, mushrooms grow in manors. “Quiet Island”, “Chekmarev Manor”, “Grace in Chechevichy” – these are just some of the estates accepting the adherents of tourism in Belarus. Do not forget about this place of rest and local: the inhabitants of Bobruisk and Kirovsk, as well as all surrounding towns and villages every summer “occupy” all the gently sloping banks of this pond.
Around Chigirinsky water reservoir there is a recreation area of national importance “Chigirinka”, which is the best way to promote the popularity of this place. Whether tourists come with savages, with tents and songs for a guitar, or they will choose an organized holiday in a cozy agro-life, this place will be remembered to them in any case. And one day they will return here.
