Travel Itinerary and Road Trip Route

Day 1: Noble traditions

On the first day you will visit two old farmsteads, then there is lunch, and after that you will go horseback riding in the equestrian sports club.

Moscow

Ivanovskoye

First stop is the Ivanovskoe estate. The first mention of the noble manor, located on the bank of the Pakhra River, dates back to the first half of the XVII century. The classicism style building, which survives today, was built in the early 19th century by the order of Count Fyodor Andreyevich Tolstoy. Attention! On weekends and weekdays apart from Mondays small groups (8-10 people) are formed for sightseeing tours. Tours start at 11:00 and 15:00. For more information you can call the number given [on the website](http://www.muz-prof.ru/).

Church of the Sign of the Blessed Virgin Mary

The architectural dominant feature of the Prince Golitsyns' estate is undoubtedly the Church of the Sign of the Blessed Virgin Mary, built in the Baroque style. The facade is decorated with a large number of bas-reliefs, as well as sculptural compositions, uncharacteristic for the Russian-Byzantine tradition of church architecture. This architectural solution was too brave for the end of the XVII century, and at first Golitsyn received a refusal from the clergymen to light the temple. A year later, however, the lighting took place, and Emperor Peter the Great himself attended the service.

Staryy Zamok

You can taste the best Georgian cuisine and have a rest before the upcoming activities in the restaurant "Old Castle". Appetizing khinkali, juicy kebab, rich soups - the menu will please even the sophisticated gourmets!

Horse-racing club "Favorit"

We suggest to spend the rest of the day in the equestrian club "Favorit". Here are well-groomed horses, beautiful ground in the arena, professional instructors who will teach you the basics of horseback riding. After such hippotherapy opens the second breath. To book a horse riding tour, excursion to the stables or a photo shoot, you need to leave an application in advance. You can do it by phone at [website](https://favorit-podolsk.ru).

Fish Point на Симферопольском шоссе

You can dine at the Fish Point restaurant. The restaurant specialises in fish and seafood dishes. Specialities include chef's patties and fish cooked on an open fire.

Day 2: Are we flying?

The second day: visit to the airfield "Sky as a gift" for a flight with elements of aerobatics. After - Museum of Garbage "MU-MU", which is located near the airfield. Then - arrival to the bird park "Sparrow" and "Plyushkin Yard" - a colorful antique shop-museum.

Aerodrom Finam

Do you want extreme? Then this place is the right one! There are flights on literally everything that flies: planes, helicopters, paragliders, balloons, gliders and gyroplanes. For the special extreme, there is a parachute jumping service. Before the flight you are sure to get a qualitative briefing, because safety is the most important thing! Having received once these inexpressible sensations, you will surely come to repeat this experience more than once! **Important! **Before coming to the airfield you need to purchase a certificate for the flight in advance. You can do this by leaving an application on [website](http://www.nebo-v-podarok.ru). In addition, in winter flights take place only in good weather, so the visit to the airfield should be planned 7-10 days in advance.

Khudozhestvennyy Muzey Musora "Mu Mu"

In order to make your day even brighter and richer, we suggest stopping by an unusual museum. There is no point in describing its colourfulness, you just need to go there and see everything for yourself. There is a ropes course and a café on the territory, in addition to the strange exhibits. You can take part in quests, for example, to feel like a hero who saves lives, or to help a neighbor whose apartment is on fire, to find the key in the mess.

Plyushkin Yard

An interesting place for those who love antiques! Here you can not only look at various antique exhibits, but also buy something if necessary. The owner of the museum is a very friendly and welcoming person, who will be happy to give you a tour and treat you to apples or delicious coffee. You can have a little snack here, but there is no permanent menu, as a new dish of farm products appears every time.

Sparrows Bird Park

Another point of our trip is the Sparrow Park. It is the first bird park in Russia, an amazing place perfect for getting a closer look at fauna: there are pavilions of tropical and nocturnal worlds, songbirds and exotic animals. In the second part of the park is a rock garden, which will also be interesting to visit. The park's opening hours can be found on [official website](https://birdspark.ru/guests).

Cool Bistro

Coming back to Moscow, of course, you need to have dinner! We recommend to eat in a quiet and cozy atmosphere of the restaurant "Cool Bistro". It serves delicious dishes of fish and seafood, prepared according to author's recipes. Enjoy your appetite and a wonderful evening! **Pay your bill at restaurants of Novikov Group with exclusive discount of 10%.
