  • I was here with friends at the Festival of ethno-music. A large open space, authentic folk architecture, quality music, the ability to transfer from Metro Robin, the friendly staff-all on the level.

  • Trip. All was very natural. The Guide, however, did not take. But the kids have run about with interest on various "exhibits".

  • Came to the Museum by car, some difficulties arose with the navigation-there are pointers. to Have booklets with buildings, but it is better to take the tour, conducted by researcher (I think 10.5 BYB). Much of course depends on the weather, since a large part of the exhibition is under the open sky. I liked the Museum. On the territory of the Museum there is a tavern, where you can eat and get warm.
