  • Each city is unique, has its own history and the exclusive originality, which no doubt proud and hurry to share local residents. Hence the creation of ethnographical open-air museums. Arkhangelsk is no exception to this rule, so Small Karelians is likely the first thing that will offer your travel provider or visit friends/relatives. If you find yourself on Shrove Tuesday, the day of Ivan Kupala, Trinity or any similar feast, you'll see another and festivities, reflecting both historical and modern coloring of the local population. Here you can try to get into the spirit of what Russian Pomerania, who did not know the Tatar-Mongol yoke and serfdom. The Museum's area big, there are 2 long jump in the form of stairs, which can be tiring to climb with young children or friends aged or "heavy lifting", but spent the time and effort worth it. It's really a beautiful place any time of the year to be boring and it is useful to spend time with your family or a loved one, immerse yourself in the history of the sport.
