About the wealth of the Russian land and its people.

This day will be exciting and a bit unexpected (in a good sense ;)), so get ready for surprises and discoveries. In Gus Crystal you will see the crystal for which Russia was famous and learn that gold glass is not always made of gold. In the Meshchera National Park you will learn more about how people lived in Russia and get to know the black and brown fox. In Guse Iron - you'll see an Orthodox church more like an English abbey. And in Kasimov - you will find out who was the first to translate Andersen's fairy tales into Russian.
