We invite you to visit one of the oldest cities of Russia - Tikhvin, which is an important cultural, industrial & logistics center.
On your way our Russian-speaking guide will not let you get bored and tell many interesting stories. In Tikhvin you will visit the Assumption and Antony-Dymsky monasteries, listen to the story of the miraculous icon of the Tikhvin Mother of God, will see the prayer stone of Anthony Dymsky on the lake and female monastery called Senno. In addition to the beautiful architectural and religious monuments in the town you can admire the beautiful nature as the city is surrounded by lush pine forests and picturesque river Tikhvinka. You will have the opportunity to swim in the water of a Holly Spring & then have a nice rest with lunch in a dinning room of a Manastery (for add.fee).
During our excursion we will visit the House-Museum of N.Rimsky-Korsakov. It was opened in 1944 in a one-storeyed wooden house, built nearly 200 years ago, where the future composer was born.The rooms of this house are furnished as they were at the time little Nika lived there. Many original belongings of Rimsky-Korsakov's family - an armchair, a clock, his clothes from when he was a child, portraits etc. were handed over to the museum as a gift by the composer's descendants. This house is located amidst nature, on the riverside, opposite an ancient monastery. There Nika's mother taught him to love nature. He admired the fields, the forest, the stars, the flowers; he listened to the rustle of trees, to the birds' songs and to the ringing of bells from the monastery, to the church singing. He retained these impressions throughout his life.
