Open Air Museum "Tatar Avala"

Plunge into the life of an ancient Tatar village in the ethnographic museum "Tatar Avaly". Here you can visit various workshops (pottery, blacksmith, leather and weaving), take a ride on a tarantase, see the authentic utensils of Tatar houses of the 15th-16th centuries, learn the mechanism of the windmill, and, of course, treat yourself to Tatar delicacies prepared from farm products. The cost of visiting the museum - 200 rubles. You can find the operating mode and other information about your visit [on this site](https://tonkosti.ru/Этнографический_музей_ "Tatar_Avyly").

I suggest stopping for lunch at a small café on the beautiful Volga embankment in Mariinsky Posad, an old merchant town.

Holy Trinity Cathedral

While walking along the ancient streets of Mariinsky Posad, be sure to visit Holy Trinity Cathedral, built in 1726. After that, climb the Gosudareva Mountain, which offers a panoramic view of the city and the majestic Volga.

Scenic Lookouts


Admire the views of the capital of Chuvashia - the Cheboksary Bay, the Song Festival Ground and the Opera and Ballet Theatre.

Yerem Husa Restaurant

Try the national dishes of Chuvashia - shirtans (through Y), chakat and chartan! The restaurant, located in an old merchant's house, has its own farm and hunting grounds and cooks dishes exclusively from fresh local products. After dinner walk around Red Square and central streets of Cheboksary.

Respublika Apart-hotel

Tomorrow you will continue to taste the national cuisine of the Volga region, and you will also have a horseback ride and an amazing clock with a donkey in Yoshkar-Ola. I recommend breakfast immediately at the hotel.
