Tourists Are Welcomed to Visit the House of Baba Yaga

The fairy-tale witch meets guests and shows them her property – traditional hut on chicken legs, school of crafts, vegetable garden and banya (russian steam bath). The territory is surrounded by a fence, behind which guests can drink tea with honey and pies.

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)
