  • The territory itself and built on her very interesting and unusual for Orthodox churches, especially if you take a tour there as well (cheap, but the campaign will be from 20 to 40 people). An interesting excursion, but as promised zazyvaloj at the box office of the Museum, we were not told about the struggle of Prince of the founder of the city with a bear. Museums for such a large and ancient city staff and special no catch, just as in a usual Museum. Although we were told on the tour about a large number of finds. Maybe it's not their fault, and Moscow which is usually the best picks to indulge in Museum funds. In general how to write some tourists: "you can go for common development", than all their support.

  • Quite interesting to wander through the exhibitions for lovers of antiques and history. The Museum exhibitions are divided into blocks: a Treasury of the Museum, the tale of Igor's campaign, icons, utensils (can't remember verbatim the name). The other did not. For sure there are the Museum of nature. Exhibits many interesting enough. Material in the Museum provides visitors with a clear. True, part of the exhibits (mostly books) are not presented in the original. Regarding the Interior, certify what is written in the previous recall: not quite snug, because there are places with ragged walls that was pretty strange to watch. A very large range of choice of souvenir products.

  • The old fortress. In winter without excursions-on 10 minutes. Watched the exposition about the treasure is also fairly typical.
