Don't know how to celebrate Valentine's Day in an original way? We have an interesting idea: how about a walk surrounded by Old Russian architecture, a visit to boyar chambers, unusual shopping at Zvenigorodsky Arbat, a tea party with handmade sweets and a master class in making gingerbread? And you can do it all in one day! Take a good mood and hit the road!
This day will be very busy: in the morning you'll make memorable photos against the background of New Jerusalem and Savvino-Storozhevsky monastery, then visit the Merchant's Court in Zvenigorod and learn the secrets of making unusual sweets in the Museum of Russian desserts.
Everyone who appreciates the aesthetics of Russian architecture and is in search of beautiful locations for photographs, should visit the New Jerusalem Monastery at least once. Walk around the territory, looking at the tiles and bas-reliefs.
A walk at Savvino Storozhevsky Monastery is like a small journey through time. On the territory of the monastery there are operating churches, the palace of Alexei Mikhailovich of the XVII century and Tsaritsyny Chambers. In the latter you can see restored interiors of boyars' chambers, household items, fabrics, female decorations of the XVII century, and tile stoves. The museum exhibition can be visited from Tuesday to Sunday, the complex can be viewed from the outside on any day of the week.
In a fairy-tale house with carved platbands there is a cozy restaurant "Brother Rabbit". Relax after your walks and warm up with spicy fruit tea before continuing your acquaintance with colorful Zvenigorod.
"Merchant's Yard" is a great place to find cute and original gifts. Here you will find home decor items, vintage dresses, handmade jewellery, natural cosmetics and unusual sweets.
And here is the most delicious place of this trip - the Russian dessert museum. Get to know the tradition of Russian tea drinking and take part in a fascinating master class on decorating shaped gingerbread or sculpting sugar flowers. And afterwards, be sure to stop by the museum's cute shop, where you can buy paintings, postcards, posters and even ceramics with touching characters created by artist Maria Feina. You can visit the museum any day of the week, but you have to sign up for a tour and a workshop in advance by phone at [website](http://rusdessertmuseum.ru) or via the feedback form.
The end of this mini-voyage will be a dinner in the light interiors of the Prichal restaurant. The menu includes the best dishes of different cuisines of the world - from Japanese to Georgian. It's better to book a table in advance by phone at [website](https://novikovgroup.ru/restaurants/prichal/).
