Vitoslavitsy Museum of Folk Wooden Architecture, Veliky Novgorod
(4.8/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
Immerse yourself in the everyday life of medieval Russia at Vitoslavitsy Museum of Folk Wooden Architecture, which features more than 20 original wooden structures dating from the 16th to the 19th century. Churches, chapels, and residential houses were collected from around the Novgorod region and then moved to this site in the 1960s. An authentically dressed guide will lead you down the village streets, along wrought-iron torch stands, peasant houses, vegetable gardens, windmills, and a bathhouse. Enter one of the houses, and try to imagine what it was like for several generations of the same family to share a single room--some sleeping above the stove and others in bench-beds.

  • One of the binding sites to visit during a visit to Novgorod. Especially useful to combine sightseeing with a local prazdnokom or event.

  • I was already in this open-air museum in small Korelah that under Arkhangelsk, so for me this format was not unusual. The Museum is divided into three sectors-Pritraktovo-Mstinskij, North-East and Lakeside. At the entrance there is a map where all buildings are marked: residential houses, churches, barns, stables. Church all closed, they can enjoy only by, admire a wooden carving, executed by Russian craftsmen. And here's to many houses you can log in and watch the life of Russian peasants. Here it is necessary to bring the kids so that they looked at the difficult lives of ancestors and rated, in which comfort and well-being they now live. Poguljaesh' not much in winter (cold yet), but in summer you can spend three hours at a leisurely stroll through the picturesque countryside. The ticket costs 150 rubles, the list of benefits is very private.

  • I could not even imagine that there are so many options for wooden houses. Very informative, very interesting. Well there to walk slowly. Breathe clean air. There is a café. On colder days you can sip tea from Samovar, wood can present and drinks stronger find. Sold as souvenirs in the Museum and on the market next to the parking lot.
