The history of Russia is incredibly complicated. Even the most educated people can find it hard to understand. In this trip we intend to go to places where the events that once changed our lives and the lives of millions of our compatriots took place directly. On the first day it is planned to tour the places of childhood of the famous Russian writer and poet Alexander Pushkin, in addition, we will visit the famous park of the Ministry of Defense "Patriot", where all the details about a variety of military equipment and major historical events. The second day of our trip we'll be spending on one of the three race fields, Borodino. There are plans to go on several excursions, as well as to visit monuments to the heroes who protected our country from invaders.
On the first day of our trip we will go to the southwest direction of Moscow suburbs. Ahead of us there are such sights as Patriot Park, as well as the manor, where he spent his childhood years, perhaps, the most famous Russian poet and writer Alexander Pushkin.
You can start our journey from the very place where once the great Russian poet and writer Alexander Sergeyevich Pushkin spent his childhood years - from the estate Zakharovo, which is part of the State Historical and Literary Museum-Reserve of Alexander S. Pushkin. Its territory is very pleasant and well-groomed, also there are many architectural monuments of 16-19 centuries.
One of the most interesting sights in the Moscow region can be called Patriot Park. On its territory there are opened a number of military historical complexes, where you can see a variety of military equipment, from tanks of the Great Patriotic War to modern weapons. In addition, the park also hosts various interactive exhibitions, a shooting competition, car racing, weapons training, reconstruction and much more.
After walks and excursions in the park, you can go for lunch in a dining room located on its territory called Polite people. The food is simple but generous, with several soups to choose from, meat and side dishes and salads made from fresh vegetables.
Gazpromneft's filling station network is located on the M1 federal highway "Belarus", namely the city of Kubinka. The station operates under a post-payment system, where customers first fill up their cars at one of the fuel dispensers and then pay for the fuel in cash or by bank card. Thanks to this system, the time spent at the filling station is halved.
One of the largest historical objects in this direction of Moscow suburbs can be called the Mozhaisk Kremlin. This white-stone fortress was erected according to the estimates of scientists around the 12th century, and it was thanks to the foundation of a strategic outpost on this territory that the city of Mozhaisk itself later emerged. Unfortunately, the Kremlin has not been preserved in its entirety, many parts of the walls and towers have been destroyed, but restoration work has recently begun and many buildings in the area have been restored.
The day is coming to an end, so it's time to go to a local café for dinner. A place called Chocolate would be perfect for that. Here you can prepare a traditional set of dishes and snacks, including a variety of salads, pizza, sandwiches, desserts, hot and cold snacks.
Today promises to be an incredibly interesting day. Our plans include a trip to one of the three race fields - Borodino. There is no doubt that the battle that took place here changed the course of the Great Patriotic War, as well as history in general. We will visit several museums that tell about these events in detail, as well as walk to the monuments of the fallen wars.
One of the most famous battles in Russian history - the Battle of Borodino - took place near the village of Borodino. It is here that the museum of the memory of these historical events is located today, where the Patriotic War of 1812 is covered in every detail, as well as the monument to the feat of Russian soldiers.
Another major attraction near the village of Borodino is the Spaso-Borodino Monastery. It was founded in the first half of the nineteenth century by Margarita Mikhailovna Tuchkova. In the house, where the founder once lived, today there is a museum, the exposition of which tells about the historical events of those years, as well as about the life of the monastery itself.
Few people know, but the famous Battle of Borodino was preceded by the Battle of Shevardinsky redoubt, during which Napoleon's troops tried to surround our infantry. As a result of persistent battle, both sides suffered huge losses here, but our troops were able to buy some time to complete some defensive work before the Battle of Borodino. Today, in the very center of redoubt, we have erected a monument to the fighters who defended these borders.
In Zvenigorod there is a cafe-bakery called "Here was Chekhov". The internal atmosphere here is very cozy and hospitable. In the menu you can find many traditional Russian and European dishes. Various French desserts and pastries are especially popular.
