Grand Maket Russia, St. Petersburg

4.7
Boasting one of the largest railway models in Europe, Grand Maket Russia features a three-dimensional layout with mountains, lakes, forests, rivers, and small towns. Hundreds of modelers and artists worked on this display, opened in 2012 with the aim of introducing visitors to the country's diverse communities and lifestyles. The layout contains street scenes depicting modern Russia, with functioning factories, flying helicopters, moving cars, and lifelike figures of people and animals. The museum's two-level railroad links the entire setup, with automatic changes from day to night and back giving the representation an added feeling of reality. Photography is permitted free of charge, so don't forget to bring your camera.

  • Drove on the insistence of the baby! Her friends had already visited. Not very convenient to get there. From Metro "Moskovskie Vorota" 20 minutes on foot. This is, apparently, a former industrial zone. Done perfectly. Qualitatively. And with humor. For kids-very informative. Recommend to families with children.

  • Interesting place not only for children. I think, the second such in Russia. A miniature collective image of Russia. Detailed scenes. Trains and cars scurrying back and forth, day turns to night. It can be seen that the project invested a lot of manpower and resources. In addition to the layout and has a café, where you can eat cheaply. All stylish, clean and tidy.

  • One of the most exciting places to visit with kids! What a brilliant idea and execution: very cool to see "behind the scenes" what makes the trains go, switch lanes, go all the way up and down. Build with such precision, humor and love. We loved the fact that some spot are still in development - something new to see next time! Spent 3+ hours easily!
  • Excellent and humorous display of vast Russian territory and it's inhabitants. Features moving vehicles, interactive displays, day/night changes with consideration of geography, and hours of fun! Decent cantine on site where you can rest your legs over a cup of tea. One can easily spend the entire day there.
  • The word amazing wouldn't describe. It's very beautiful and there where small details that are so funny you have look deep to find it such as Putin on a bear. That made my day The level of creativity is oh my god, the details made my heart melt.. I wish visit it again to find more hidden funny messages.
  • Impressive ! 2 to 3 hours to look at everything. An extraordinary level of details: from 5 to 99 years.
  • Wonderful maket museum ! It's a must if you have kids. The place it's really big and have plenty of different places of Russia .
