It is a museum of wooden architecturein the outskirts of Novgorod on the place of the former village of Vitoslavlitsy. The village was founded in the 12th century but the museum was created only in 1964. On the territory of the museum you can see traditional Russian wooden houses as they looked in the 14th-19th centuries. So cool! We liked this experience to visit it! It was really hard work to make those wooden houses… We are really lucky to live today!
The Cathedral of Christ the Saviour (sounds in Russian as “Khram Khrista Spasitela”) in Moscowis considered as the largest and the tallest Orthodox Christian church in the world!
The building was rebuilt in 2000 (after the original was demolished by Stalin) so it is not as old as it looks (although it does not really matter). The cathedral is really impressive and we do like it a lot!
BTW I want to warn you (for not to be disappointed as we were) that if you want to visit it mind that there is certain dress code for entering the Cathedral, and for example if men are in shorts they are not allowed to come inside.
For a meal in Great Novgorodwe stayed in the restaurant “Yurievskoe Podvorie”. There were lots options of a good, quality and healthy food in a menu. Everything looked good and tasty. We liked lovely garden around area where we ate and enjoyed our light lunch.
“Eliseevsky shop” in St.Petersburg really is an amazing!It is beautiful ancient building outside and so nice yummy place inside! Once you are there you do not know where to look first! Sooo sweet “paradise”! Mmm… :) We never passed by! :)
p.s. But… Why? Why are NOT all those things healthy? :(
