Arch Cape (Dirovaty)

Arch Cape is a rock which reminds an elephant with its trunk put into the water from one viewpoint, and from another side - grey turtle which gobbles the water, while on the 3rd viewpoint - it is totally an extraterrestrial animal. Such unique shape was formed as a result of weathering and destruction of crystalline mountain rock under the the influence of physical-chemical processes and wave impact. In high water conditions there in enough space to go by boat under a "trunk". The cape looks like a lancet construction of Gothic style of 4-floors house size from far away, which reminds Roman or medieval bridge span of massive masonry, which led to a reason to call this place an "Arch".
