  • Interesting historical sight although there is not much to see here.
  • A very good Museum-farmstead. Drove fine, although the road not Ahti. But who has written about the need to go to the car with the high ground clearance-not right. You just have to go slower and go around the pits, it was no problem even for my matizki. Parking can be found, but was occupied by tourist buses. Put on the sidelines, benefit, there is no prohibition signs. The place is beautiful! Class!

  • Beautiful park, interesting exposition. But there are a bunch of cons. This is a staff that is not ready to be of interest to visitors. Noise-you cannot, you cannot touch, close approach-it is impossible. The question hanging in the air "Che cornered?" entrance charge, each exhibition stands alone.

  • "The road" (if it can even be called pricey) before this monument is missing. I advise you to go only on cars with high ground clearance. Find parking, too, not really.
