Journey to the 19th century: ancient monasteries, manors and memorial sites of the Patriotic War of 1812.

Trip duration: 3 days

Anastasia Baklanova



Today's day would be a good start with delicious baked goods and invigorating coffee.

Государственный историко-литературный музей-заповедник А.С. Пушкина

History Museums

I suggest today to plunge into the atmosphere of Alexander Sergeyevich's childhood. The poetic homeland of Pushkin is called Zakharovo and Vyazemy estates near Moscow, as his childhood years have passed here.

Усадьба «Вязёмы»


These places are connected with the key events in the history of Russia: "Troubled times", Petrovsky Transformation, Patriotic War of 1812. This is where Kutuzov's quay was made. Visiting is possible from Tuesday to Sunday.

Pizza Festa (Пицца Феста)

Pizza Places

I suggest to stay in a cozy cafe, have a drink, share impressions of the trip. Not only pizza is served here, you can also try pasta and several kinds of soups.

Пушкинский парк


Visiting the places where Alexander Pushkin grew up one cannot ignore this park: beautiful, cozy, immediately brings to mind the fairy tales written by the famous poet. Here you can even find the heroes of these fairy tales.

Преображенская церковь


Another curious place near the Pushkin Park is the Church of the Transfiguration - it is interesting because it was erected in the late 16th - early 17th century by order of Boris Godunov. In the early XVII century, on the way to Moscow, Marina Mnishek stopped and prayed in the church in Nikolsko-Vyazemy. At the altar of the temple rest the ashes of Nicholas Sergeyevich Pushkin, who died at the age of six years, younger brother of Alexander Pushkin. Alexander himself and his grandmother, Maria Alexeevna, and his sister Olga went to the Transfiguration Church from Zakharov, to Sunday Liturgy. The War of 1812 crippled the church. Some shrines of the temple were taken to Moscow and there are hidden in the ground, in the gardens of private homeowners.

Серая лошадь


Dinner I offer in a cozy restaurant with very tasty food and excellent interior! The best place to relax and have a snack. It is definitely worth visiting, wandering around the territory, taking pictures at an old carriage and at the hut of a woman-yaga.
