Plyos is a town in Privolzhsky District of Ivanovo Oblast, Russia, located on the right bank of the Volga River, 70 kilometers (43 mi) northeast of Ivanovo, the administrative center of the oblast. Population: 2,340 (2010 Census). It was founded in 12th century.
Once this place was loved by the talented artist Isaak Levitan. It is thanks to his paintings, which he wrote here more than 200, other artists, writers, Moscow summer residents, and then tourists were drawn into the city.
That allowed to save Plyos almost as it was at the time of its foundation more than 600 years ago.
Here, in the northern corner of the Ivanovo region, they go just behind the historical atmosphere – colorful wooden houses over the Volga, silhouettes of ancient belfries and forests in the hills attract hundreds of thousands of travelers a year.
