The Blue Stone on Lake Pleshcheyevo

The Blue Stone, or, as it is also called, the Blue Stone, can be seen on the shore of Lake Pleshcheyevo near the town of Pereslavl-Zalessky. The place is very popular among tourists, many want to see with their own eyes a stone to which the popular rumor attributes a mysterious magnetic force. Some believe that it is able to make wishes come true and even cure diseases.

The blue stone is part of the “Lake Plescheyevo” national park.

This boulder is not the only one in the Pereslavl district, there were other blue stones in the vicinity, even now you can see several preserved ones. However, this very stone near Alexander’s Mountain has become a local landmark, which is mentioned in many guidebooks. It is worth visiting the place not only for the sake of the Blue Stone itself, but also to admire the nature. If you climb one of the mountains, you can appreciate the magnificent panoramic view of the lake and the area as a whole.

Reviews of Xin Stone

Some tourists remain slightly disappointed by what they see. Many imagine the stone to be of impressive size, in fact, now you can see only the top of it. This is due to the fact that the boulder began to gradually sink into the ground, a few decades ago it towered higher. Travelers are also surprised that the color of the stone does not correspond to its name. The blue stone has a gray hue, you can observe the change of color only in sunny weather after the rain – when it gets wet, its surface becomes really blue thanks to the refraction of sunlight.

Unfortunately, the popularity of the sight has its downside – someone tries to chop off a piece of miraculous stone as a keepsake, and inscriptions also appear on it. Because of the large influx of tourists to come freely to the stone and take pictures can be problematic, you have to wait your turn.

Legends of the Blue Stone

It is believed that the stone was brought here by ancient glaciers. Some sources state that the boulder weighs up to 4 tons, more modern researchers voice an even more impressive figure – 12 tons. One way or another, the appearance of such an imposing stone in a flat area has taken on a mystical character in the eyes of people. The pagan Merrians, who inhabited the land at that time, believed it had appeared there under the influence of higher power. For this reason, the stone began to be venerated as a deity, offered sacrifices to it and performed rituals there. Later the Slavs that settled here continued the tradition of honoring the Blue Stone. On holidays here were brought flowers, the boulder was also decorated with flowers and there was a round dance around it.

Even with the establishment of Christianity for a long time, people still revered the Blue Stone, continued to gather around it and conduct rituals. The church was concerned about the manifestation of the remnants of pagan beliefs and tried to combat this. With the blessing of the Monk Irinarkh, the deacon of the Pereslavl church Anufrii dumped the unwanted stone into a dug-out hole. However soon the waters washed away and the Blue Stone reappeared.

Several years of struggle with the boulder brought no success, and then it was decided to use it for the benefit of the Orthodox faith – to build the foundation for a new church, which was planned to be built on the other side of the lake. They loaded the huge boulder onto a sledge and drove it on the ice, but it failed under the weight of the Sin-Kremlin. So the boulder appeared at the bottom of the lake Plescheyevo. Approximately 50 years later it appeared on the shore in its present place not far from the Alexander’s hill.

The Blue Stone on Lake Pleshcheyevo

For a long time various assumptions concerning the reasons of its mystical appearance have been made. One of the most plausible versions was a scientific explanation of the phenomenon: the stone froze into the ice in winter, and the ice moved it closer and closer to the shore due to the spring wind. But researchers of paranormal phenomena still see something mysterious in the appearance of the stone on the lake shore.

Now the stone is beginning to go underground. Comparing modern photos with earlier images, you can see that it has subsided quite a bit.
