  • One of the places you want to visit in pereslavl-Zalessky. The Museum opened, the ensemble consists of several small buildings. Tickets for a lot of personal feelings. The exposition there are unique items that will be of interest to lovers of history of the Russian fleet.

  • On the territory of the Museum there nice walk, not very many people, nature. Interesting to see the little "Fortune", the remainder of the fleet were Peter well decorated Hall Rotunda-buildings for public receptions and dances. The inconvenience is that to purchase tickets must go through the whole estate to the end, to buy tickets at the White Palace and then come back. It would be easier to buy a ticket at the entrance and gradually go through the territory, entering the building.

  • On Lake Pleshcheevo shoe mark "swim." Strange, because very clean bottom and to go to the depth needed to pass ~ 1 km. Botik itself is very beautiful. Ticket it estate 180 rubles (single), grace school or student 100 rubles and pension 130.

  • Beautiful stylized under old ship. Prices are a little awkward, because of the abundance of interest of Muscovites, and here's a little hamovity waiters. But it is treated by the size of tip.

  • I liked. The complex consists of several museums, all nbol′šie, 1-3 rooms. Botik is impressive, though it would be great if you could listen to the story of the shoe.
