The Shushenskiy Bor is a national park located on the right bank of the Yenisei. It was created to preserve an ecosystem of Siberian forests in the foothills of the Sayan Mountains in 1995.
Despite plain part of Shushensky bor is also included to national park, its value is historical, not natural. The flat part of the park is just near Shushenskoye. Lake Perovo is 15 kilometers from the village. It is a favorite recreation place of the natives. And it is there that Lenin liked to hunt and rest during his exile. On the bank of the lake there remained a hut where he used to rest with local peasants during a hunt.
Zhuravlinaya Gorka (a sand dune of 35 meters high) and the Peschanaya Gorka (a sand dune of 45 meters high) are near Lake Perovo. Also, it will be interesting to have a look at Macherkina Gorka. It is a small dune (up to 4-5 meters) on the border of the Shushenskiy Bor and to the south-west from Shushenskoye. In this place there were discovered the dwelling sites of the Bronze Age and the Iron Age, as well as the dwelling sites of the Afanasyevskaya, Tagar and Tashtyk cultures.
