Tourists Are Welcomed to Visit the House of Baba Yaga

The most grateful visitors are children – they believe that Baba Yaga is a real person, living in this house. Museum can be attented only in organized groups. A bus tour from Moscow to Kalyazin with an excursion to the residence costs 1000 rubles per person. 

      It is notable that Tver region is famous for its unusual museums. Here are several of them:

      Goat Museum (in Tver)
