Ботик Петра

In 1803 near Veskovo a museum "Peter the Great's Shoe" was organized which became the first provincial museum in Russia. The House of Bothny was built for the boot. It exhibited the "Fortune" bot, as well as surviving anchors, rudders and masts from other ships.

Ботик Петра

This wonderful restaurant offers a magical view of Lake Plescheevo. I recommend ordering fish and dishes from the chef.

Плещеево озеро

Under the leadership of Dutch craftsmen Brant, Kort and Klass a funny squadron was built on Pleshcheyevo Lake: two frigates, three yachts, a galley and smaller vessels. According to Petr, "the courts are all good". On May 1, 1692, the funny flotilla was launched. Its appearance was met by a volley of guns, which heralded the birth of the Russian Navy. In the summer of 1692 on Pleshcheevo Lake was held Russia's first naval feast, during which the ships demonstrated various maneuvers and techniques of combat. On February 7, 1722 Peter I issued a decree ordering to keep forever the remains of ships, yachts and galleys built for Pereyaslavl lake and on which the tsar first studied marine affairs. Ships were kept in the Fish Sloboda on the Trubezh River, where they were burned in 1783. By a lucky coincidence, "Fortuna" was at the shipyard in Veskovo and survived. Besides the fact that the lake is rich in history, it is very beautiful, you will get just magical pictures!

Музей паровозов

A museum that won't let any child get bored. You can not only explore the exhibits, but also have fun riding one of them, how about a ride on a handcar? The museum is open from Wednesday to Sunday. It is better to order tours in advance by phone indicated on [site](

Трактир «Попов Луг»

I offer dinner at this inn. You can have a fun discussion about the past day, the most memorable moments, and have a hearty meal before you go home.
