  • Excursion to the Museum very much! A great open-air museum. Well-groomed territory, beautifully preserved home and work and entertainment-all great! The Museum really reminds Museum Skansen in the Swedish capital. Photos to enclose

  • There were several times in this great open-air museum. Among birches stand a century-old wooden hut Kostroma province. In izby presented Interior and household items at that time, held the ancient ritual performances. On the territory there is a playground with elaborately carved wooden figures of heroes of Russian fairy tales. You can walk around the whole day, it's a pity that there are no cafes, just at the entrance of a drinks machine.

  • Have been here twice. If you are with a sidecar, then get ready to wear your baby's hands, because good tracks there. A playground for an additional cost. Café closed.
