  • Were in August of this year. We've been dipping a little bit in the old days! I liked it. Good territory, museums. The staff are friendly. The bell tower overlooks the city.

  • Were this weekend at our museum. Only the bell tower and the bear Masha visited. I did not find whether there is any description about the bell tower, but the bear gladly read with the child her story. Very surprised that it is written only in RUSSIAN. In my time foreigners photographed the story, I thought to then translate. The museum is aimed at all tourists, why is there no translation?! Otherwise: on the bell tower beautifully, the bear slept:)
