Bolshakov (Horun et al., 2003).The water spring is a shrine of the Tula land; therefore, it has a cult and historical-cultural significance. It is a place of pilgrimage for Orthodox Christians of Tula and neighboring regions (the water from the spring has miraculous properties according to numerous testimonies). The catchment area and its natural complexes containing plants and animal species requiring protection are also protected.
