What to bring from Vyksa

A Borodachevsk toy

Unique local craft – a Borodachevsk toy is reborn in Vyksa. These are painted wooden toys manufactured by the original technology of the last century. The technology was developed in the late XIX century by artist Elizabeth Vasilievna Kikina-Borodacheva (1868-1935). She made wooden dolls and caskets decorating them with carving, burning, oil, watercolor and tempera painting, inlay and varnishing. Today, Tatiana Ganina, a craftswoman of Vyksa, is involved in the revival of the decorative arts. Borodachevsk toy can be seen and bought at the manor-industrial complex Batashevs-Shepelevs and in hotel "Batashev".

Art casting

Foundry work souvenirs of Brothers Karpeev have become a trademark of Vyksa, and many tourists take away gorgeous orchids, poppies, and "Iron Rose" - a symbol of Vyksa in the memory of the city of metallurgists.

Ceramic and art works of Victor and Tatiana Bezumnov. Couple-artists make jugs, damasks, milk jugs, kettles and handmade mugs. You can order dishes or tiles with your monogram or family crest. Children like colorful clay whistles. Workshops of Victor Bezumnov are held every Sunday in the territory of the city park.
