You will have an unusual day with the modern history, namely acquaintance with the history of Togliatti from Tatishchev, the founder of the city to AvtoVAZ, which, in fact, has turned the city into what we see now. There are very few cathedrals and ancient historical monuments, as the city was built under the communist system in Russia, but you will see how people lived in the late 50's and how much has changed to this day. After the history of the twentieth century you will move to the Middle Ages, the Garibaldi Castle, the foundation of which, according to legend, was built in the X century. Just look at this castle and imagine that Richard the Lionheart himself has been here. And in the evening from the medieval castle you will move to Bogatyrskaya Sloboda - an extraordinary architectural complex, created in the traditions of Old Russian wooden architecture in the picturesque place of Zhigulyov mountains.
On this journey, a journey into history awaits you. We will start with a new history - from 1950, when AvtoVAZ appeared in Togliatti, thanks to which now Togliatti is one of the largest cities in Samara region. Then you will move to the Middle Ages, where you will become a resident of the Middle Ages from an ancient castle. And at the end of the day you will meet with real heroes in Bogatyrskaya Sloboda.
The journey begins! For a smooth trip, we recommend stopping at a gas station - fill a full tank of quality fuel, pump up the tires, buy aromatic coffee and snacks on the road.
The city of Togliatti was founded in 1737 by a statesman, historian, geographer, philologist and ethnographer V.N. Tatishchev. And only two hundred years later the city grew into the autograd of Togliatti.
Among all the Togliatti sights, the AVTOVAZ Technical Museum named after K. G. Sakharov takes a special place.
Togliatti Local History Museum is now not only the main museum of the city, but also one of the main museums of the whole Samara region. The museum funds contain about 63,000 exhibits - various items of art and documents of the region. On Monday the museum does not work, the last Friday of the month is a sanitary day.
It's time to eat, there are not many places in the village, so today's lunch will be quite simple.
Garibaldi Castle is a private project still under construction. It is named after the father of the castle owner, Garibaldi Arkadievich Kuzichkin. Now you can see only the exterior of the castle, but it is impressive! You can have a photo shoot and feel like knights and princesses of the Middle Ages.
Bogatyrskaya Sloboda fully reproduces the refuge of the inhabitants of Ancient Russia and is a striking example of wooden architecture. The territory is surrounded by a high frequency, equipped with huts, ristalische and even a consecrated chapel. Here you can also change your clothes and arrange a photo shoot, but already in Ancient Russia.
Stop by for dinner at a very pleasant kebab on your way home to come back full and satisfied.
