Time travel

You will have an unusual day with the modern history, namely acquaintance with the history of Togliatti from Tatishchev, the founder of the city to AvtoVAZ, which, in fact, has turned the city into what we see now. There are very few cathedrals and ancient historical monuments, as the city was built under the communist system in Russia, but you will see how people lived in the late 50's and how much has changed to this day. After the history of the twentieth century you will move to the Middle Ages, the Garibaldi Castle, the foundation of which, according to legend, was built in the X century. Just look at this castle and imagine that Richard the Lionheart himself has been here. And in the evening from the medieval castle you will move to Bogatyrskaya Sloboda - an extraordinary architectural complex, created in the traditions of Old Russian wooden architecture in the picturesque place of Zhigulyov mountains.
