The first stop on the way will be a private museum, where cars, motorcycles, bicycles and other equipment of the USSR times are collected, then we'll head towards the museum-reserve "Shushenskoye", where we'll see the exposition devoted to Lenin's exile to Siberia, and in Sayanogorsk we'll touch the ancient times, looking at the artifacts found at the archaeological site. I recommend to go on a trip on Saturday, because on Sundays the museum "Automobiles and Motor vehicles of the USSR" does not accept visitors, and the local history museum Sayanogorsk closes an hour earlier.
