What is interesting in the suburbs? It is even called the Suburbs. The same birch trees just a little bit straighter and higher than in Bittsevsky Park, the same air, only more fragrant and fresher than in the local parks, the same grass, the same birds. It’s a bit more saturated, so what? How can the suburbs be compared with the breathtaking heights of the Caucasus or the Crimea? Holiday home near Moscow on the weekend, with resorts in Cuba or the Maldives? Tourist bases of rest the Moscow region with the savagery of Karelia or of Patagonia? With endless saucers of lake Onega or lake? With the tides and breakers of the ocean? And what to do? For the wind in the domes- in the mountains, with the wind in our sails — the sea or a large lake. No rapids or sheer cliffs. So I reasoned, for the first time at the urging of friends decided to travel to the suburbs. How I was wrong. We went to the house-Museum of Chekhov in Melikhovo.
The Chekhov house-Museum. The estate has pleasantly surprised me. The house was restored. It allowed the tour. Stood next to the extension to which Chekhov sees patients from common people (for those who don’t remember, Chekhov was also a doctor part-time, and took patients at the manor on a voluntary basis). All (or almost all) in his office looked like during his lifetime, although, of course, I admit that the appliances were just like. But how austere it looked! Equipment: a stethoscope, a couple of some fixtures and intimidating. Robe on a nail in the corner. The modest couch. Discordant with all the austere environment, only the LCD screen hanging in the corner, in which we broadcasted a film about Chekhov. When I look at it all, and wonder how people of that time managed to live to such a ripe old age.
Most enjoyable was Park and garden, in which grew an old Apple and cherry. On the porch of the manor is played the play can assume the pen of Chekhov. In the far corners of the Park, the local population staged the exhibition of achievements of the household economy: a large number of zucchini and other food, including giant size watermelon. And most importantly, the stunning beauty of the flowers.
Children were not left without a holiday: in a clearing at the entrance inviting them to take part in folk games, like hit the Apple in the wrap. For the smallest of the performance began with the Parsley in the title role.
Long story short, but he’s towards the evening. On the way back we stopped at the source by Eglah desert. Tired but happy we returned home.
Most of us, dreaming of distant lands and warm seas, often do not notice their surrounding beauty, which is just a few hours drive or less, although sometimes this is the only option to escape from depressing the hustle and bustle of the city, a way to breathe some pure air of freedom, adventure, relaxation. But if we choose a suitable vacation home the suburbs for the weekend, to drive only a few tens of kilometers from the bustle of Moscow, how do we find the majestic expanses of the ancient Rus ' with its dense forests and the legends of ancient cities. Many of them were included in the Golden ring of Russia, from childhood well-known route for foreign tourists and other lovers of the Russian exotic. Remember: «Mr. Twister, Former Minister, Mister Twister, millionaire, … the Owner of factories, Newspapers, steamships, Decided at leisure to Travel the world. «Fine!"Exclaimed his Daughter Susie.—Let's visit the Soviet Union! I’ll eat caviar, Live to catch a sturgeon, Go to the top three Over the Volga river And run to the farm For raspberries!» That is to say, nice to live not forbid. Perhaps during the writing of these immortal lines all was well, but now I would myself have gone to places where you can eat caviar. That, however, does not diminish the dignity of their native lands in the Moscow region. For many of us the tour of the Golden ring of Russia is the first journey in life. However, along the route of the Golden ring I rarely go (but to avoid it only for ten days), to feel the unique spirit of each city, to keep bright, rasputnya the experience of visiting the Golden ring.
