Every year, I go to my grandparents. They live in a beautiful town. This is Borovichi. Borovichi is the second largest town in Novgorod Oblast, Russia. Administratively, it is incorporated as a town of oblast significance (one of the three in Novgorod Oblast). It also serves as the administrative center of Borovichsky District. The town is located in the northern spurs of the Valdai Hills, 194 kilometers (121 mi) east of Veliky Novgorod. It stands upon the Msta River. Just upstream Borovichi there are the famous rapids of Msta popular among tourists.
The Msta was an important waterway since at least the 10th century, since it connected Novgorod with the river basins of the Volga and the Northern Dvina. The settlement was first mentioned in 1495. It was granted town status in 1770 by Catherine the Great. The main occupation of the town's inhabitants was piloting ships through the rapids of the Msta River that used to be a part of an important waterway connecting Central Russia with the Baltic Sea (hence a rudder appears on the town's coat of arms granted by Catherine II). However, by the middle of the 19th century, after opening of the Volga-Baltic Waterway and the Moscow-Saint Petersburg Railway, the significance of the Msta River as a transport route has decreased. In 1905, the first arch bridge in Russia was built in Borovichi across the Msta.
The town of Borovichi contains one cultural heritage monuments of federal significance which is the arch bridge across the Msta and additionally ninety-nine objects classified as cultural and historical heritage of local significance.
I love this town.
