Kinogorod Piligrim Porto

Piligrim Porto is a small "ghost town" in the forests of the nearest Moscow region. Here they filmed "Notes of the forwarder's secret office", and the scenery is preserved in very decent condition. There is an antique frigate, which you can even climb to feel like a captain at the wheel, and then go explore the ancient streets. Some buildings can't be accessed, but it won't darken the photo shoot in a quiet forest surrounded by all kinds of scenery and curious buildings.



A ten-minute drive from the cinema city is a small restaurant Nekrasov. The menu here is very extensive and varied, you can find dishes of Italian and French cuisine, a lot of different salads. Facility's atmosphere is also very pleasant and soothing, the interior is made in light colors.

Усадьба «Середниково»


One of the main tourist attractions of the Moscow region can safely be called the Serednikovo estate. Once this place was owned by the grandmother of the famous Russian poet and writer Mikhail Yurievich Lermontov, here he spent a lot of time working on poems, as well as on the famous poem "Demon". Today the estate has a rather large museum complex and regular excursions take place.
