I’m starting a series of travel-note-style postings with this one. I’ll describe a trip to Russia’s Vologda region’s centre and northern regions.
Litega is the administrative center of the Prigorodny rural settlement, located in the Sokolsky district of the Vologda region. By road, the Sokol city district center is 15 kilometers away.
The settlement is situated on the Sukhona River’s banks.
And also in the area of the bridge over the Sukhona and in the place where the federal highway M8 Kholmogory runs at 496 kilometers.
Also in the vicinity of the Sukhona Bridge and the 496-kilometer federal route M8 Kholmogory.
Litega has a population of around 800 people, which is a large number for a village.
If we’re talking about the river, this is almost the start of the Sukhona.
A little farther upstream is the city of Sokol, which is home to a huge pulp and paper mill as well as a great condensed milk factory.
There will also be a confluence with the Vologda River downstream.
All of the photos were taken immediately from the river bridge.
