Rowan grove on the Klichen Island

On the Klichen island on Lake Seliger is located a miracle of flora – a rowan grove. Particularly striking here, of course, in the autumn, when the rowan fruits. The nature of the island is extremely picturesque. Inland lake is breathing the peace and quiet. The unique sand bar gradually goes into the water of Seliger more than a hundred meters. This is unique place on the lake attracts lots of travelers. According to a legend the name "Klichen" comes from Russian word "call". Island inhabitants disliked trading vessels, which took place at the Seliger waterway in ancient times.

When merchant vessels appeared on the lake, call was heard over the smooth surface of the Seliger; and traders, to put it in a modern way, "were soaked" in the literal and figurative sense. Perhaps because of this Klichen town was completely destroyed in the 14th century. The remaining inhabitants moved to the territory of modern Ostashkov. Neolithic period dwelling sights are known at the Klichen Island. People have lived there for 2-3 thousand years BC. On the northern bank of the Island, especially after heavy rains, fragments of flint tools and pottery which were used by our ancestors can be found sometimes.
