We suggest to start the second day of the trip from the city of the sun. The city is rightfully considered one of the brightest representatives of merchant Russia. Let's start our acquaintance with the Way Palace of Solnechnogorsk. I advise to visit several halls of the exposition: "Road Hall", "Noblemen's Drawing Room", "Merchant's Hall", "Room of a townsman", "Peasant Hut", "Hall of Military Valor".

Озеро Сенеж


After getting acquainted with the history of the city, we go to explore the natural landscape. Solnechnogorsk is the only city in the Moscow region, to which belongs its own lake Senezh. On the lake embankment, in the city park, there is an alley of unusual sculptures. The residents themselves call Solnechnogorsk Park "a park of strange sculptures". The most original of them is the monument to the Mermaid in a telogrike and with a harmonica.
