Start your day by admiring the take-off planes near Sheremetyevo Airport. Then go on an unusual excursion to the Falcon Hunting Center, and in the afternoon sharpen your skills in the ski resort "Volen". In Dmitrov, visit Genesis, a creative laboratory for children and adults, to take a carpentry quest together or learn to draw with a 3D pen.
Next to Sheremetyevo Airport there is some kind of observation deck from where you can admire the take-off and landing planes. Alas, the platform is not equipped: cars park right along the road. But when you see metal giants flying right above your head, you will immediately forget about these little inconveniences.
At the Falcon Hunting Centre, you can get to know birds of prey and learn the secrets of falconry in a close and safe way. The standard 2-2.5 hour programme includes a visit to the farmyard with goats and sheep, introduction to birds in the falconry yard, tea drinking in the yurt and an open lesson on how to deal with hunting birds. Falcons can be held on their hands in a protective glove and finally taken a memory photo with them. The cost of the excursion in the Falcon Center is 1500 rubles. Be sure to make an appointment by phone in [group](https://vk.com/falconry_museum). The museum is open daily from 10:00 to 21:00.
For lunch, check out the Carousel Self-Service Bistro, located in Yakhroma Park. The menu offers a wide choice of Russian and Ukrainian dishes: from salads and borscht to pancakes and pies. Quick, tasty and inexpensive - and as a bonus there are great views from the window!
Recently, in the sports park "Volen" there is an educational slope with an artificial surface, on which you can ride without snow. In snowy weather ["Volen"](https://www.volen.ru/) turns into a full-fledged ski resort of European level. There are 15 slopes (one of them belongs to the children's ski club), 7 lifts and 4 baby lifts, equipment rental. If your child is not skiing, you can send him to the children's room with toys (400 rubles per hour). Details on [site](https://www.volen.ru/katanie). The park is open on weekends from 9:00 to 2:00 at night, on weekdays from 11:00 to 00:00.
One of the most interesting places in Dmitrov with children is the creative laboratory "Genesis" with modern digital equipment. Every weekend and sometimes on weekdays there are interesting clubs and workshops for children and adults. If you do not have time to attend the master class with the group, you can try to enroll individually. This can be a 3D pen drawing, a carpentry lesson and even a carpentry quest. For more information on the schedule of events, please call [website](https://vk.com/genesis_dm).
For dinner, you can stop by the Hippopotamus and Mouse grill bar. Parents will be delighted by the rich choice of juicy steaks and spicy snacks. Children will love chicken soup on golden broth, homemade dumplings and creamy pasta with four kinds of cheese. For dessert - cherry ice cream or apple strudel. And while waiting for the dishes you can play darts and table football!
In the morning, go to meet charming raccoons, and in Sergiev Posad, go for a dogsled ride and meet little Huskies. In the afternoon, drop by the Nomad Ethnopark for real yurts and camel rides. Don't miss out on quad bikes through snow-covered forest and then pick up water from Radonezh's springs. Finally, visit the farm to buy organic produce and check out goats and geese.
In the morning the way lies to "the only museum in the world where the tours are conducted by the raccoons themselves". Coon House in Khotkovo is a wonderful place to get acquainted with these charming creatures. All visits are strictly individual, on the premises in gazebos and by appointment by phone or in the [group](https://vk.com/domenota1). The museum is open daily from 11:00 to 18:00.
Dog sledding, husky talk, photo shoots - all this you can try in the "House of Husky" near Sergiev Posad. Husky's house is not a museum or a zoo, but a residential building in the private sector where dogs are bred and where all friends are invited. You can also go for a dogsled ride in winter and when the snow is not enough (there are summer structures on wheels). Detailed information by phone at [site](https://xn--80ahnhilx4a.xn--p1ai/).
Cozy, hearty and nourishing place in Sergiev Posad - "Varenychnaya № 9". Your children will be delighted with the range of dishes: favorite vareniki with potatoes and mushrooms, spinach and cheese, apple and cinnamon... ...can go on forever and ever! The cafe is open from 9.00 to 22.00.
A unique ethnographic project in the open air invites to get acquainted with the life and traditions of nomadic peoples. Excursion and entertainment activities are temporarily suspended, but you can always come to the park for a walk - ride on camels, wander between yurts, buy original souvenirs or drink tea in an unusual cafe. Entrance ticket for the period of restrictions costs 250 rubles. Warning! The park is open only on Fridays and on weekends, from 10:00 to 17:00. Please note that only cash is accepted as payment in the park. For more details about the park, please [here](http://ethno-park.ru/).
Not far from "Nomad" is [rented](http://www.quadrider.ru/) ATVs, which operate all year round. As long as there is little snow, all routes of any duration are open. When the weather is snowy, only short walks of 30-40 minutes are available. You can ride ATVs with children from the age of three - but it's up to you. Be sure to book walks in advance by phone at [site](http://www.quadrider.ru/).
The Radonezh holy spring is a wonderful place for a short evening stroll. The place is ennobled: there are stairs and paths, wooden baths with changing rooms, an artificial lake and a water wheel. There are lanterns along the paths, so you can even come here at dusk. Drinking water from the spring flows separately from the four pipes, so you can collect water here. There is a spacious parking lot for motorists, and you can find a toilet a little away from it.
Take a last look at the Golden Cockerel Farm. It breeds breeding goats and dairy sheep, chickens, quails and geese. To get on a tour of [the farm](http://xn-----6kcchhpn4ag4acbabrfsthgw3c0d.xn--p1ai/), you need to buy products for 5000 rubles. The farm shop sells goat and sheep milk, cottage cheese and yogurt, cheeses, eggs, butter - in short, a lot of everything delicious, natural and healthy. You can book the excursion and get answers to your questions by phone at [site](http://xn-----6kcchhpn4ag4acbabrfsthgw3c0d.xn--p1ai/).
A great end of the trip will be a dinner at the restaurant "Sosny". Pizza from a wood stove, fish from the restaurant's own smokehouse, a huge selection of seafood - this is the perfect shot against Russian winter. **Pay your bill at restaurants of Novikov Group with exclusive discount of 10%.
