Berdsk is a city in the Novosibirsk region of Russia, it stands on the banks of the Berd River, from which it got its name. The city of Berdsk is quite old and dates back to 1716, but there are very few ancient buildings here, most of the monuments were built in the second half of the last century.
One of the important attractions of the city of Berdsk is the Transfiguration Cathedral. An unusual three-level cathedral, in which the relics of St. Acacacy of Athos rest.
A few years ago, the Transfiguration Cathedral became the owner of the recently cast bells. From that day on, their ringing spreads throughout the county. There is a parochial school at the cathedral. And many cathedral shrines contain part of the relics of various martyrs.
Provides services and manages the activities of the temple – the rector of the Transfiguration Cathedral, Archpriest Basil. Also in the cathedral there are several priests who talk to parishioners about God’s topics.
The architecture of the cathedral is designed in the classical Russian style, as required by tradition. Since the temple is in the public domain, anyone can come here during working hours. This is the second temple in the Novosibirsk region, which has the status of a cathedral.
The territory of the cathedral is fenced. Here, near the altar, you can see several graves of the bishops of the cathedral, who served this temple all their lives.
The cathedral does not have a long history, it was founded only in 1992 by the architect Chernobrovtsev.

House with cannon
Those who visit the house of Gennady Teplyashin, do it with his mouth open and admire the next masterpiece of the artist. This house, in which the architect lives, looks like a work of art. There are so many things here: painted walls, paper pots, guns firing fireworks, and even a cat that caught its paws on the roof so as not to fall off it.
We built this house very quickly. Gennady and his sons built the frame in just a month. And his plan was, drawn on paper in just half an hour.
Teplyashin’s family moved to the city of Berdsk from Kazakhstan after the perestroika of the 1990s. The first significant work of the young architect was the airport in Kazakhstan. He designed it himself and built it himself. After perestroika, there was not enough work, so Gennady traveled around the country and worked in many cities from Moscow to Kurgan. And only after that he went to his homeland – in the Novosibirsk region.
Now Gennady is retired and, as he says himself: “There is nothing more to do, only to decorate the house. With children.”
Tourists mainly inspect the house from the outside and not many manage to get to visit the architect. But inside, the house also impresses with its works of art. For example, the kitchen is painted with paints, in the bedroom a composition of sawdust on the entire wall. Going up to the second floor of the house, you cling to the bizarre railing of sawdust with special processing. And above the railings made a panel of shards of marble.
Of course, on the street the design is not worse than in the house itself. On the territory already known to many concrete gun is installed. This is the Shuvalov unicorn. You put down fireworks and shoot. And on the facade hangs a cat made of plastic.
To start and finish the next invention, Gennady Vitalyevich takes about a month. First, the model is made, then the form is formed. And only then it is necessary to treat with a protective varnish. The model can be made of any material and anything.
Children help Teplyashin to equip a family house. Most of them followed in their father’s footsteps.

The purpose of the formation of the city park “Berdskaya Spit” is the preservation of the rarest and most endangered species of flora and fauna, as well as the preservation of the aesthetic value of natural ensembles. On the territory of the “Berd Spit” recorded 210 species of invertebrates, 55 species of birds, 17 species of mammals, 4 types of amphibians, 2 types of reptiles, of which 9 species are included in the Red Book of the Novosibirsk region.
Also, these places are popular due to esoteric legends. The presence of energy zones (some of which remove negative energy, while others charge a person with positive energy and restore health) have a unique positive effect on the human condition.
The beautiful nature and diversity of flora and fauna make this park unique. But in connection with the expansion of the city limits, everything began to be built up here, as a result of which deforestation and pollution of adjacent territories began. The city park has turned into a real dump.
Subsequently, the adopted law on paid entry into the territory of the city park solves this problem with pollution. When paying 400 rubles for a car, vacationers are given biodegradable garbage bags so that they can take out the garbage behind them.
On the territory of the park “Berdskaya Spit” with the permission of the city council allowed picking berries, amateur and sport fishing. There are tables, toilets and even sports equipment. The sandy beach is equipped with sun loungers and umbrellas, you can rent jet skis and bicycles.

Berd forest dacha
The geographical position of the Novosibirsk region at the junction of natural zones determined the rich landscape diversity of its territories. Near the elements of the lowland taiga of Salair there are steppes, taiga and forest-steppe. And among them are large reservoirs of rivers, lakes and swamps of the region.
Among them, a special place is occupied by the nature of the basin of the old Berd River. On its banks, in the north-western direction from the city of Berdsk in 2002, the “Berd Forest Dacha” was included in the list of specially protected natural monuments of the Novosibirsk region. The western border of the “Forest Dacha” runs along the shore of the Novosibirsk reservoir. The northern and eastern boundaries are determined by quarterly clearings.
The natural massif “Berd forest dacha” was one of the first to be recognized as a reserve and for many years has been and remains a popular holiday destination for residents of the region. All guest houses, hotels, sanatoriums and sports facilities located here are protected by a beautiful untouched forest.
The most important attraction of this place is a pine forest in the form of so-called ribbon forests, which arose from ancient times. The famous local birch groves are called “pegs”. White birch trunks, which glow at sunset and burn with the bright yellow color of autumn leaves, always attract people with medicinal herbs, mushrooms and berries.
Continuous thickets of sea buckthorn, hawthorn, currants and rose hips filled the lower protected areas of the Berd forest dacha. And also there are a large number of birds with nesting sites and shelters for night and winter.
All forests of this territory are inhabited by numerous animals. For many of them, the main diet is sprouts, shoots, birch earrings and needles. There are special conditions for the formation of an ecosystem with rich flora and fauna. All this, coupled with the extraordinary aroma of the pine forest, makes you want to visit these places. The city of Berdsk is also very close.
Thanks to the creation of the natural monument “Berd Forest Dacha” it was possible to clearly define what is possible and what is not possible here. This is a great contribution to the solution of the common task of protecting and preserving nature.
