The sights of Kireyevsk tell the story of the town and its environs plainly and vividly. Tourists come here for outdoor recreation and in order to learn new things about our country and region.
Kireyevsk acquired town status only in 1956. Until that time, the work settlement of Kireyevka was located here. Ore and coal were mined nearby. The village itself was formed thanks to the settlers who left Dedilovo, one of the fortresses of the Great Zasechnaya Cherta (Great Abatis Border).
A more detailed story awaits you in the wonderful local lore museum. Within these walls, you will be told about the capital of the greatest Slavic tribe Vyatichi, Dedoslavl, about the all-Union achievements of local miners, about the attacks of the Crimean Khan Devlet Giray, and about his defeat. Dioramas and original exhibits of the museum are available to you at Chekhova St., 6A.
Another Kireyevsk landmark is located on Lenina St. – an old water tower shaped as a Venetian campanile. Similar structures are found in several other settlements in Tula Region. It is remarkable that such a tower was built in the middle of the 20th
century. It’s a good idea to take a photo with such an unusual tourist attraction in the background.
You can relax in the fresh air in Kireyevsk walking along the shady alleys of the town park. Here you can sunbathe on the beach and swim in the Olen River.
When visiting Kireyevsky district, don’t forget to visit the ancient village of Dedilovo. You will find many earthen holes, Slavic temples and burial mounds around this settlement. In the center of the village stands the Church of Saint Paraskeva Pyatnitsa, the painted walls of which will capture your attention.
