From Balabanovo we came by bus to Borovsk which is a small but historical town. It has about 12 thousand inhabitants but is known to exist at least since the 13th century. The famous Pafnutiyev monastery (of Saint Paphnutius) is close to the town but we didn't visit there this time. We walked in the town and watched its beautiful old buildings and many murals.
