  • Really enjoyed this museum. True, inside the cold and damp. But it's small. In the center of the excavations of the ancient houses of settlements of Slavs that lived in 11-13 b. Around stands and a detailed description of the utensils, household items, tools, jewelry of ancient peoples. We liked.

  • Looked inside to warm up in the hope of minus 20, eventually froze even stronger, as the Museum is not heated, but it truly remarkable.
