  • If you are a tourist and suddenly found themselves in Arkhangelsk is the place be sure to visit. The huge territory is forest massif, with lots of monuments of wooden architecture. There is a gazebo, a swing and vintage games. In part you can enter houses. Also often hosts various exhibitions. In each sector there are toilet and catering point. Recently, a couple of years ago there were none. Thanks, that is taken care of. Summer in sunny weather, you can go on all day. Autumn-winter-2-3 hours is enough. You can ski, ledyankah, etc. The workers are very friendly, all questions are responsible. How to get to a place, if not by car. There is public transport. 104 bus. You can sit at the railway station, you can on VWD. On the way back-stop is next to the Museum. The schedule can be found in the Internet. Periods between buses great-you should take this into account. Price 64. Taxi is better with a fixed rate. The approximate cost of 300-400 rubles per one way. That is, if 4 person-is easier to taxi. If you call a taxi back, note the machine will go 15-25 minutes. It makes sense to make a reservation.

  • In the village of collected several dozen homes and other buildings of 18-20 centuries of wood from all over the region. Many homes there are supervisors who will gladly tell about the peculiarities of life in the North of Russia. For a walk I recommend found at least two hours.
