Working hours: Monday to Friday 8:30 to 17:45, lunch break from 1:00 to 2:00, Saturday 10:00 to 3:00.

Starokarasuk

This is an old Siberian village, which emerged in 1699 as a settlement where people from central Russia were exiled. The increase in the number of houses and the growth of the settlement was facilitated by the Moscow-Siberian road, laid in 1763. Since then, a unique building has been preserved in the village - a house of five, built about 200 years ago. It is considered to be the same age as the house of Peter the Great, which is located in St. Petersburg.
