Moscow

Peredelkino House of Art

Peredelkino is rightfully considered to be a haven for creators of the first half of the 20th century. It is believed that Maksim Gorky was the initiator of creation of the country writer's residence. The dacha village houses the museums of Boris Pasternak, Korney Chukovsky, Yevgeny Yevtushenko and Bulat Okudzhava. But the main goal of today's visit is the renovated House of Writers. It is a cozy art space, which combines laconicism of modern architecture and "lameness" of Soviet interior details. Amateur photography is allowed, if you are going to use professional equipment, it is necessary to arrange a photo session in advance by writing to [direct](https://www.instagram.com/peredelkino_dt/).

Усадьба «Вязёмы»

Another poetic place. Vyazemi estate belonged to the Golitsyn family, but it became famous thanks to the name of Alexander Pushkin. It was here, at the ball, that the poet saw his future wife for the first time. You can take a walk along the alleys of the manor park, see the exposition on your own, or order an excursion in advance by phone at [website](http://www.museum-gol.ru/service/index_tours.htm).

Кафе «Француз» (на тропе здоровья)

It's worth making a short stop for lunch before heading further afield. Have a look at the Frenchman Cafe. Pleasant bright interiors, quality service, a decent choice of dishes on the menu. And a pleasant bonus for gourmets: the cheese shop, where you can buy the tastiest eco-products, is open at the café.

Усадьба Петровское-Княжищево

The main manor building is in a state of ruins, however, in some places, ancient bas-reliefs are preserved on the facade. A walk among the trees reveals the pedestals, but the ancient sculptures, unfortunately, have not survived. The best preserved outbuildings have survived to our time. Not far from the estate there is a restored church, it was built in 1756 by the architect M. Kazakov.

Church of the Intercession of the Mother of God on the Desna River

A beautiful wooden church with atypical for Moscow region architecture. You would rather expect to find something like this in Karelia than in the vicinity of the capital. Next to the temple there is a refectory and a Sunday school building, decorated with fine wooden carvings. Surprisingly, this sample of wooden architecture was erected relatively recently - in the late 1990s.

Наш бараш

And the end of this mini-voyage will be a dinner at the oriental cuisine restaurant "Nash Barash". The facility's interior is a work of art in its own right, with many original and very unusual details. The same can be said about the menu.
