The west of Moscow suburbs is rightfully considered to be "little Switzerland" - nature, architecture, history - everything amazes the imagination and causes the desire to return there again and again. Let's get acquainted closer with the brightest estates, cities and temples of this direction?
On the first day I suggest to get acquainted with a small town Zvenigorod and its main sights, and then to go to New Jerusalem - the pearl of Christian Moscow suburbs.
We will start our journey from Zvenigorod, get acquainted with its main treasure - Savvin-Storozhevsky monastery. It is considered one of the most beautiful and ancient monasteries in Russia. Place of pilgrimage of thousands of believers from all corners of the Orthodox world.
Then I suggest visiting the unique People's Museum of Lubov Orlova. The museum is located here not by chance, People's Artist of the USSR, the favorite and idol of many generations - Lyubov Orlova, was born in Zvenigorod and spent her childhood and youth in these places. Here you will see unique costumes from filming and get to know a part of the amazing life of an actress.
Immediately after the museum, you can relax in a cozy cafe and have lunch before the road.
Having gained strength, we go to one of the main sanctuaries of Moscow region - New Jerusalem Monastery. At the moment the restoration of the complex is almost completed and you can enjoy in full the whole ensemble, relics and history of this unique place.
After a busy day, I offer dinner and a cozy homely restaurant. It is located near the monastery, which is very convenient. And also here every gourmet can find a dish to his taste.
We'll start the second day with fragrant coffee, then go to Solnechnogorsk. There we will get acquainted with the history and nature of the city, and finish the day with a dive into the life and poetry of Alexander Blok. "Pharmacy, street, lantern..."
I suggest you start the new day in a wonderful coffee shop in the city, where they make fresh, fragrant coffee and bake delicious buns for breakfast.
Isn't it time to stop on vacation? You can warm up, fill up and buy goods on the way at Gazpromneft's filling stations.
We suggest to start the second day of the trip from the city of the sun. The city is rightfully considered one of the brightest representatives of merchant Russia. Let's start our acquaintance with the Way Palace of Solnechnogorsk. I advise to visit several halls of the exposition: "Road Hall", "Noblemen's Drawing Room", "Merchant's Hall", "Room of a townsman", "Peasant Hut", "Hall of Military Valor".
After getting acquainted with the history of the city, we go to explore the natural landscape. Solnechnogorsk is the only city in the Moscow region, to which belongs its own lake Senezh. On the lake embankment, in the city park, there is an alley of unusual sculptures. The residents themselves call Solnechnogorsk Park "a park of strange sculptures". The most original of them is the monument to the Mermaid in a telogrike and with a harmonica.
We'll have lunch at a restaurant not far from the lake. The service is quite fast, so it won't take long.
After lunch, we'll go to Alexander Blok's homeland. You will be able to get acquainted with the history of the poet's family and creative work, as well as understand his desire to return to his homeland all his life.
Next to the estate there is a museum dedicated to Alexander Blok, and in the square you can admire the monument to the poet and his lady of the heart Lubov Mendeleeva.
Not far from the museum there is a cozy little restaurant where you can have dinner and share the impressions of such a bright day.
On the final day we will visit Klin: get acquainted with the history of the city, visit the estate of PI Tchaikovsky. On the way back home you can look at the outlet and go shopping.
You can have breakfast in a small home café. Then we'll hit the road.
We will go to a small town Klin and get acquainted with ancient monuments of Russian culture. It is worth paying attention to the Trinity Cathedral! The grandeur of the building amazes the imagination.
The Church of the Assumption is considered one of the oldest. Its construction dates back to the middle of the XVI century.
We'll get some rest and have a bite to eat at the café. Then we'll go to the main object of the day.
We go to the house-museum of P.I. Tchaikovsky. The whole atmosphere is preserved and you can immerse yourself in the life and life of the great composer. For fans of classical music it is a unique opportunity to immerse themselves in the times of great composers and performers. Also the nature and the location of the estate allows you to walk and feel like a real musician.
On the way to Moscow, I suggest you take a look at the "Black Mud" outlet. We'll go shopping and take a little detour from the busy trip.
Here you can have a little snack and go to Moscow.
