  • If you have time, you should go to this quiet and authentic area. In principle, get there easily. We were with the excursion. A unique open-air museum.

  • Good afternoon! All people interested in culture in the historical direction (NAR. architecture and everyday life) very I advise to visit the Museum. Visited him many times and still going in the long term. Was there in the winter and spring, and summer. Each season is perceived differently due to the natural environment. Pros: near Minsk-you can get both by bus and by car; -the museum itself is extensive. very picturesque Stretches. The feeling that there are living people; -It will be interesting to see how the Museum with your friends and with children or alone. -is "Inn", where you can grab a snack or try the national Slavic drink-for example, sbiten. -You can come during the festivals of folk music and combine a visit to the Museum with dancing. The Museum has planned to expand. Hopefully, there will be new exhibits-home from different parts of Belarus. -If you wish, you can go with a guide.

The place is very atmospheric, and children can show history and the walk interesting, learned a lot of new and interesting excursions, pleases the Museum maintains the tradition. Everything always friendly in Karchme and simple atmosphere and insanely pleases care for younger guests entertained. Recommend and the citizens of Belarus and our guests!
