An entertaining itinerary with intellectual and sporting retreats for energetic men of all ages. The programme includes paintball, wakeboarding, fishing and a race track in harmony with museums of civil and military equipment.
In the program of the day: a visit to two really spectacular military museums, where you will not get bored, and "reel" with a breeze on a wak on Bear Lakes. Let's celebrate your success with a pint of Kraft beer at the Sergiev Posad gastropub. For dessert - FIFA, NHL, Mortal Kombat.
Well, here we go! Let's start with the aviation museum. Get ready, men, we'll walk a lot. The exposition spreads over 20 hectares. The museum contains more than 200 real planes, helicopters and other airplanes, illustrating the history of Russian aviation from 1909 and literally until today. If you are lucky enough to be here on May 9 or June 12, you can witness a traditional air show with the participation of legendary planes from the Great Patriotic War, modern fighters, as well as airships and balloons. Important: The museum is not open on Mondays and Tuesdays. Opening hours on weekdays are from 9:30 to 17:00, but with a technical break from 13:30 to 14:15. On weekends: from 9:00 to 14:00.
For lunch we'll go to Chernogolovka, to a cafe on the shore of the Southern lake. We can start with a specialty "soulful company" with a herring of our own salt, sauerkraut and lard, continue with borscht "Siberian" and "Skoblyanka in Novgorod style" and finish with pancakes "with heat and dust".
Next stop is the museum dedicated to the history of civil and military equipment in the science town Chernogolovka. The collection of the museum brings together the achievements of the global automotive industry for more than 100 recent years. Special attention should be paid to the exposition of armored vehicles of the World War II, including military trophies of Mercedes-Benz and Volkswagen. Military equipment is complemented by motor vehicles, search and rescue vehicles for the evacuation of astronauts, cross-country vehicles, fire trucks and taxis. The pride of the museum is a model of a real flying saucer developed in our country in 80-90s. It has a capacity of up to 24 passengers and a flight range of up to 2000 km. Unfortunately, due to lack of funding, the project has remained a project. Important: on Mondays and Tuesdays the museum is closed, on Thursdays it is open by prior arrangement. On the other days - from 10:00 to 17:00.
The Gremyachsky Key is a holy spring founded by St. Sergius of Radonezh. The holy spring, as a complex consisting of temples, fonts, stairs and stairs, is the official courtyard of the Trinity-St. Sergius Lavra. It is open 24 hours a day.
Let's celebrate today's victories in the Sergiev Posad gastropub. Here, the largest selection of Kraft beer in the city neighbors with delicate menu items: "tender joe in meat", "tender chikentaliti", "al chico". By the way, beef "medal of bravery" under truffle sauce is also available to order. You guys deserve it today! For dessert - FIFA, NHL, Mortal Kombat.
The culmination of our trip - paintball battles at perhaps the most interesting polygons in the Moscow region. It will be hot! In between we will wrap up the dacha to Mayakovsky and the Istrinsky Museum of Vadim Zadorozhny's equipment.
Varenichkov would have been in the morning... Like Mom! Oh, how lucky. There are three types of meat with potatoes, cabbage stew and mushrooms. And, of course, with cherries. It's just like when you were a kid.
Before leaving Sergiev Posad, we will climb Pancake Mountain or, as the Sergiev Posadians say, "Blinka". This area used to be famous for its pancakes. Alas, it is no longer possible to eat, but to admire the Trinity Sergius Lavra in all its beauty is easy.
Here it is, the culmination of our journey. Shall we shoot? The place is very suitable - more than 10 hectares of area with a forest, a huge field, the river Skalboy and even its wetlands. Objectively speaking, it is unlikely that you will find in the Moscow suburbs more curious in terms of terrain and equipment. After playing paintball, we can shoot with bows, crossbows and air rifles or take a safari on ATVs. And even take a swim in the river, if the weather allows. We'll have lunch right here. Say, grilled homemade sausage or Uzbek lamb pilaf. Optionally, we can rent a barbecue and fry meat, as appropriate for real men after an active pastime. Important: advance booking is required, contact details for the game can be found on [the official website of the club.](https://militarygames.ru) If possible, come with your masks.
Switch to intelligent leisure. Let's go see the "hut on chicken legs", which V.V. Mayakovsky has repeatedly filmed in the summer months. Here is recreated not so much the true atmosphere of those years, but the very essence of the rebellious poet. Important: we recommend you to notify about your visit by phone number indicated in [the official museum group in "VKontakte"](https://vk.com/dachamayakovskogo).
Another museum of historical technology in our piggy bank. Its collection consists of more than 1000 rare exhibits, which are not only in perfect condition, but also on the move. Among the particularly curious objects is the ZIS-115 car, which was driven by Stalin. We can view the exposition by ourselves or with a guide. It is recommended to finish the excursion with a test drive of a vintage car and a master class on assembly and disassembly of the Kalashnikov AK-47. Important: detailed information about the possibility of riding a vintage car or armored vehicles should be clarified in advance by phone number indicated [on the official website of the museum](https://www.tmuseum.ru).
Isn't it time to stop on vacation? You can warm up, fill up and buy goods on the way at Gazpromneft's filling stations.
Dinner at the restaurant of home Balkan cuisine in Istra. The menu was developed here by a chef from Serbia itself. We recommend that you pay attention to the meat dishes for which the Balkans are so famous. And, of course, a glass of wine for the meat. Do you prefer wines from Macedonia, Romania, Bulgaria or Hungary?
Today we are going to fish on Lviv's ponds. In breaks we will visit the cheese dairy, heroes-panfilovtsy and Yaropoletskaya hydroelectric power plant. We will finish our trip on the first FIA F1 race track of the highest category in Russia.
We will visit the Istra cheese dairy opened on the anniversary of Russia's response to Western sanctions. From Thursday to Sunday, from 10:30 to 16:30 you can watch the process of cooking local cheeses. And then chase the cheese heads to the local shop. Important: there is a cafe at the cheese factory from 9:00 to 20:00.
Let's stop at 6 stone giants, actually embodying the whole 28 heroes, who on November 16, 1941 blocked the road to Moscow 50 fascist tanks.
Let's take a look at a hydroelectric power plant built almost a century ago on the Lama River. During the Great Patriotic War, the station was destroyed, and it was restored only 40 years later.
We will fish on Lviv's ponds, which are famous for their perch, pike and crucian carp. In addition to the natives, other traditionally Russian fish species have also taken root here. You can bury the catch if you like or cook it right at the Finnish grill house. We will get lunch ourselves today! It is recommended to complete a successful fishing trip by visiting a bathhouse-bottom.
The cherry on the cake in our journey is the first race track of the highest category FIA F1 in Russia. Anyone with a driver's license will be able to experience the limits of their own or locally rented car on the road, where no speed limits apply. Here we go! Important: you need to book a racing session (15 minutes) on the official Moscow Raceway website.
