Before the constriction of a railway, every spring, along with floods, heavily loaded barges departed from the marinas in the upper Chusova and headed to Perm. To further increase the water level, dams of factory ponds were opened. Floating rafting was very dangerous for heavy wooden ships, many of them sunked quickly hiting against coastal cliffs.

It so happened historically that the Ural has always been a place of exile and hard labor for Russia. Due to the harsh climate and difficult living conditions, due to the wealth of the subsoil, as well as its geographical location (in the very center of Russia, where there is simply nowhere to run from), the Ural has become an ideal place for exile and an ideal area for labor camps. During the time of the Russian Empire, there were Demidov iron ore mines and iron mills, where hard labor peasants worked in hellish conditions, during the Soviet era. Therefore, the main point of today's day will be the Perm-36 GULAG museum camp located on the territory of this camp. In 2004, UNESCO experts ranked the museum among the most significant monuments of the world.
The key point of today is the famous Stone Town (Devil's Hillfort) The rock mass of the hillfort is cut by numerous deep cracks (up to 8-12 meters). Thanks to this, the outlines of the rocks and cracks in them are very similar to the houses and streets of the old, abandoned city.

Today we will be following the path along the road that made Russia! This is the Babinovsky tract - a direct road from Solikamsk to Verkhoturye, which in ancient times served as the main postal route to Siberia. According to one version, Artemy Babinov, secretly following a group of Mansi who came from Siberia, used the Mansi path and made it into a road. The tract played a huge historical role in the fate of Russia. It was along it that the development of Siberia and even the Far East started. On it through the Ural Mountains, taiga and rivers, royal decrees, a treasury of money were carried; many ambassadorial delegations, postal carriages and scientific expeditions passed through here. Thousands of Russian peasants who settled in Prikamye went this way in search of free, liveable lands. At the end of the day we will reach the Northern Ural! And we will admire its beauties at the mountains of Polyud and Vetlan which are covered by many legends.
