Really worth to have a visit there if u r interested with Russian historical architecture. But definitely you must have a tour guide as it far from town. I think it's better if u come during spring.

liked the place - even in winter it was nice to walk through old wooden buildings drowning in snow. But when you get in (note - not all buildings are open in winter) you feel it alive, unlike many museums. Maybe that's because all buildings...More
