Owner description: On the 8th of June in 2012 the national show-museum «Grand Maket Rossiya» opened its doors hospitably for the wide auditory. By this time, thousands of citizens and quests of our city watched this unique exhibition. On the layout area of 800 square meters you will see the generalized images of cities and regions of Russia. Hundreds of moving trains and cars, sound and light effects add dynamics to the exposition and thousands of tiny figures make the genre scenes. Add the astonishing effect of day and night changing doesn`t leave a single visitors indifferent.

“An amazing work of engineering!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2013 via mobile

I was blown away by the Grand Maket! Almost all of Russia is represented here in miniature. This isn't your kid's train set! You could spend all day here and still not see all the cool details that have been worked into the scenery. The more you pay attention to the details, the more you'll be rewarded.

All in all, the Grand Maket is sure to be a hit with the kids or make you feel like a kid again. A nice bonus is the command center where all the automation is monitored. Also be sure to pick up a picture book for a few bucks (not advertised, just ask)!

“The world's biggest country in miniature”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2012

As we all know Russia is the biggest country in the world. And to travel it all through is pretty hard... But this exibitions offers perfect opportunity to have slight look at the every part of the country!

Don't expect every detail will be realistic and exact copy of the originals. No - to do it they would have to build the museum equal to the city by it's size! Lots of installations are schematic. But still it is amazing to watch "sun goes down" above plastick country in the right side of the showroom and already "comes up" in the left side!

More than that. The installations are not static! Trains are moving, farmers are working and the lights turn on when "the night comes"! Really cool! St.Peresburg is represented on the biggest part of the maket and this one is the small copy of the most famous city's attractions!

You can take pictures without any additional price!
Worth seeing!
