Tourist route “In the footsteps of the Pugachev rebellion” to appear in the Orenburg region

The press service of the government of the Orenburg region reported that a new tourist route will be created for the 225th anniversary of the birth of A.S. Pushkin. It will pass “Following the footsteps of the Pugachev rebellion” through the settlements of Tatishchevo, Nizhneozernoye and Ilek.

Tourists will be able to drive through the places where the events of the Peasant War under the leadership of Emelyan Pugachev unfolded. A.S. Pushkin visited here when he wrote his story “The Captain's Daughter”.

The route is currently being tested. The expert group includes employees of the Center for Tourism Development of the Orenburg Region, the Orenburg Governor's Museum of History and Local Lore, teachers from OSU and OGPU, as well as tour operators. Now they are making proposals to adjust the route. It is expected that schoolchildren will be the first to travel along it.

The route begins from the former Tatishchev Fortress. Today its borders can be determined by the elements of the landscape of settlements and by the surviving ruins of bastions. It was here that one of the largest battles that determined the outcome of the war took place. The fortresses of Nizhneozernaya and Tatishchevo were taken by Pugachev’s army and were held by them for six months.

Nearby is the Catherine Bridge and the road along which Emelyan Pugachev led his troops away from government troops. The villages of Nizhneozernaya and Tatishchevo served as prototypes for the Belogorsk fortress in The Captain's Daughter.

Another point on the route will be the House-Museum of Cossack Life in the village of Kardailovo. Unique and one-of-a-kind exhibits are presented here that characterize the life and way of life of the Orenburg Cossacks.

“The new trip will expand the excursion potential of Orenburg, Ilek and Perevolotsk districts, demonstrate new locations associated with historical events, and create children’s excursion and educational programs,” the statement says.
