We will go to the ancient city of Tver. We will visit such museums as: the Tver Goat Museum, where we will learn why the goat is the symbol of Tver and a lot of other interesting information; the museum of Tver way of life, where you will be told how the local people lived centuries ago. We will visit some monuments: to the liquidators of the Chernobyl NPP accident consequences, to Afanasiy Nikitin and the Obelisk of Victory. We will walk along the picturesque embankment of the Volga River.
The day will start with a visit to the museum of Tver goat, then we will visit the museum of Tver way of life, take a ride on the Ferris wheel and admire the bird's-eye view. In the afternoon we will visit the most significant monuments of Tver and take a walk along the Volga river.
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 goat is a symbol of the city of Tver. The museum has about 5500 exhibits from 40 countries. There is a large number of figures, souvenirs, flags, symbols of domestic regions and foreign countries and everything is related to the theme of the Goat. It will be interesting and informative! The museum is closed on Mondays, on Sundays it is open from 12-00.
You will learn about how the locals lived in different historical periods. There are 2 permanent exhibitions. The first one is dedicated to the Russian samovar. You will learn the history of the samovar, see different types of samovars, teapots and other dishes used for tea drinking. The second exhibition is dedicated to the interior decoration of houses of Tver merchants of the XIX century. Here you can find antique furniture, books, clothes, toys and other household items. The cost of visiting 100 rubles, for students and pensioners - 50 rubles. Monday and Tuesday - weekends.
I suggest we take a ride on the Ferris wheel. From a bird's-eye view you will see Tver and enjoy a stunning view of the Volga River.
It's time for a snack and a rest. Lunch will be held in a very cozy cafe on the river bank. The menu offers dishes for every taste. I advise to try meat and fish cooked on coals and freshen up with delicious homemade lemonade. Bon appetit!
Square dedicated to the liquidators of the accident at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant. From the Tver region the liquidators of the accident were about 3000 people. There is a monument depicting a man with his hands stretched out to the side, which symbolizes the protection of people from radiation.
We'll make a stop by the obelisk. It's open on the 29th anniversary of Tver's liberation from the Nazi invaders. On holidays, the Victory Flame is lit on top.
The monument is located opposite the place from where the famous merchant and traveler went to India. A massive bronze statue is mounted on the observation deck, which is stylized as a ship's deck and the bow of the ship is made in the form of a horse's head.
We will walk along the embankment, get some fresh air and enjoy the view of the Volga River. Here you get great pictures!
Our journey is coming to an end. Dinner will take place in a restaurant of Caucasian cuisine. Excellent khinkali, khachapuri and many other things are served here! Pleasant atmosphere, polite staff!
