Events, facts, documents and evidence: Information was given on the page The director's house about how directors of the national park got an accommodation to themselves. A former small hotel-house in the Pashukovskoe forest area, in the village of Podbelskie Ogorodniki which became an apartment house for the today's director of the national park is also shown there.
