"Silver Necklace of Russia"
The Silver Necklace of Russia is a tourist route through the ancient Russian lands. It includes 11 constituent entities of Russia: St. Petersburg, Leningrad, Arkhangelsk, Murmansk regions and other northern regions of the country. The most interesting natural and cultural attractions are collected: famous museums and objects of ancient wooden architecture, national parks and imperial palaces.
The Peter and Paul Fortress on Hare Island was founded in 1703, and less than 10 years later the capital of Russia moved to the city built around it. Today St. Petersburg ranks first in the country in terms of the number of palaces, about 200 museums are located here, and the Hermitage collection has become one of the largest in the world.
The Leningrad Region is famous for its cultural monuments. Among them are ancient temples, medieval fortresses, palaces of the Russian nobility, writers' estates and war memorials. Many cultural monuments today have become museums, which store the values of different eras.
The Arkhangelsk region is famous for examples of northern wooden architecture. In the museum "Malye Korely" there are more than a hundred old buildings: peasant huts, baths, a bell tower, a church and the largest collection of windmills in Russia.
