  • A friend decided to plunge into the history of our Navy. Persuaded arrive at this museum. First himself and escaped. Just amazingly dull Museum. Can, of course, and not a season, but in other places the guides and Rangers at least react to the arrival of visitors. In General, only in memory view on Lake pleshcheyevo

  • Visited this Museum November 5, 2016 after leaving the car parked below, climbed the hill where the Gremyach farmstead. It consists of 5 buildings and several monuments. Chose to view the most interesting exhibit-bot "Fortuna", the only surviving. Made it somewhat clumsy, but firmly and securely. BOT-vesel'nyj 10, mast folded. Ticket in this building is 50 rubles. Exposure in other buildings look, like, looked obelisks. The Museum was founded in the year 1803, one of the oldest museums in Russia. Is in the village of Veskovo village near pereslavl, look can be interesting.

  • 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.
