Where to go for the weekend from Moscow. Where to go by car for the weekend
Of course, the frantic rhythm of life in the Russian capital, with its endless traffic jams and gas content, cannot have a positive effect on the health of Moscow residents. At the end of the working week, the majority of residents of the megalopolis make the only right decision: to leave the city for the next couple of days. But in what place? And then of paramount importance is the question of where to go for the weekend?
Of course, almost everyone immediately remembers the near Moscow region, so as not to spend too much time on the road.
Today, almost everyone has their own car, so the question of where to go on a weekend with the family is doubly relevant.
Consider it in more detail.
Do not know where to go on a day off? Go to the suburban town of Kolomna.
It can rightly be considered a unique historical heritage, where there is a whole arsenal of cultural monuments.And the local Kremlin is simply amazing with its majesty and beauty: durable medieval walls in combination with seven towers and multi-colored domes just create such an effect. It is possible that after a certain period of time, Kolomna is transformed into a major tourist center. And then the question of where to go to rest for the weekend, will disappear by itself. Here there is entertainment not only for children, but also for adults.
In the evening, the Kolomna Kremlin is especially beautiful: the towers, ancient houses of the suburb, the temples are covered with light and there is a sense of a fairy tale.
Meditate on where to go for the weekend? It is worth considering the option of a trip to Melikhovo, where the manor of the most talented writer Anton Pavlovich Chekhov is located. On the road you will spend only 1.5 hours. Arriving at the place, you can choose a museum program and learn all about the life of the writer. Also here are often staged theatrical productions for children, one of which is called "Son of Kashtanka". In the summertime, you can also use the programs: “A lesson at a rural earth school” or “Tea drinking in Melikhovo”.The latter will completely immerse you in the atmosphere of life of the estate of the period of the 19th century.
You can drink tea from a real Russian samovar and taste the delicious homemade jam.
If you love animals, but at the same time you have no idea about where to go by car for the weekend to have a good time, then you are the direct road to Prioksko-Terrasny reserve. It is located near the city of Serpukhov. Bison nursery has been working here for many years. It is here that experts are making maximum efforts to increase the population of bison - large European bulls, which were destroyed at the beginning of the last century. At the very beginning, there were only two bison, but then each year the offspring was born. And now the number of animals has increased significantly.
For a long time no one is surprised that many residents of the metropolitan metropolis rush to the suburbs for the weekend. Where to go, so that at least for a day to forget about what urban fuss is?
We can recommend the town of Zhostovo, which is famous for the folk art of decorative painting.At a factory enterprise, where specialists do it professionally, a tray museum was built in the 19th century, where you can see unique patterns on metal products. You can even personally - under the supervision of the master - paint one of the trays, and then bring it as a souvenir to your home.
Of course, one of the main attractions of the ancient city is the Zvenigorod Kremlin, of which the Assumption Cathedral is an integral part. This monument of architecture was decorated by Andrei Rublev himself.
Another amazing structure is also amazing - Savvino-Storozhevsky Monastery, which was the residence of Tsar Alexei Mikhailovich.
Can't figure out where to go by car for the weekend? Not far from the metropolitan metropolis is a settlement with the interesting name Sparrows. Arriving in the village, you can take a walk to enjoy the fresh air and the singing of birds. Here you will merge with nature together. If you wish, you can spend the night in a local hotel.
If you are tired of Moscow, where to go for the weekend? Go to the deer farm, which is located in the small village of Antsiferovo, Orekhovo-Zuyevo district.There you can ride on deer and learn a lot about the culture of the Eskimos.
Another unique attraction of the Moscow region is the New Jerusalem Monastery, located in the city of Istra. The road by car takes about one hour.
Patriarch Nikon founded the temple in the middle of the 19th century. Here are the holy places, which were created by analogy with the great Jerusalem. Even geographical names have changed. In particular, the river Istra was later called Jordan, and the hill on which the temple towers became Zion.
Be sure to visit the Garden of Gethsemane, which houses an open-air museum.
Here you can see the unique buildings of wooden architecture: a farmer’s manor, a mill, a church. In this place is the monastery of Patriarch Nikon.
The settlement of Tarusa is located near Serpukhov. From the Russian capital to the above city by car can be reached in about two hours. It should be noted that Tarusa to the maximum extent retained its historical appearance of the era of the 19th century: there is neither a lively automobile traffic, nor tall buildings. This is an ideal vacation spot for those who are already quite tired of Moscow.Where to go on a weekend to forget about the bustle of the city? Only here. Walking through the quiet streets with one-story houses, clean fresh air, the picturesque banks of the Oka River - all this will leave an indelible impression.
Here you can see the monument and the house-museum of the famous poetess Maria Tsvetaeva, go to the local art gallery, visit the Cathedral of Peter and Paul.
Gzhel has for many years been considered the largest center for the production of ceramics. In the village there is an enterprise "Sin Rossii", whose specialists are directly involved in painting on porcelain and ceramics. The distance from Moscow to Gzhel is about 60 kilometers. This place is called the "edge of the porcelain miracle." You can use the excursion program and see the technology of painting what is called “from the inside”. You can also independently engage in this fascinating work, staying at a master class.
Outside the Moscow region there are also a huge number of attractions. Want to know where to go for the weekend? By car you can easily reach the village of Konstantinovo (Ryazan region), where the great Russian poet Sergey Yesenin spent his childhood and youth.In the village to the present time preserved the house where he lived. The museum-reserve is not only the poet's manor, but also the school where he studied, as well as the places where he liked to visit. The nature of this place is also picturesque, since the village is located on the banks of the Oka.
Of course, one of the great places to travel is the Tula region. Well, one of the Russians did not hear about such things as the Tula samovar and Tula gingerbread. Here you can go to the exhibition of collection samovars, gingerbread factory, visit the unique architecture of the temples and see the old fortress.
And, of course, everyone knows that in this region there is the famous estate of the writer Leo Tolstoy - Yasnaya Polyana.
Not to mention the tourist complex "Etnomir", which is located in the Kaluga region. This place is called the center of various cultures. By visiting it, you can become a resident of any ethnodvor, feeling the diversity of culture, learning a lot about the customs and traditions of nationalities. Each ethnodvor contains exceptional buildings of its kind, including craft workshops, houses, hotels,museums, traditional restaurants, souvenir shops and other facilities that convey the identity and way of life.
