THE LIVING MUSEUM OF FOLK ARTS (THE KREMLIN IN IZMAILOVO)

The first Russian folk toys looked like a slightly carved knots and most of them represented birds with cautiously stretched neck. The homeland of such toys was Sergiyev Posad, a small city near Moscow. Apart from the toy birds, the museum is inhabited by the bright clay crafts from the ancient city of Kovrov, wooden characters in khokhloma gilding, wooden hens on the stand and, of course, matryoshka dolls! Every item in the museum have travelled here many hundreds of years and thousands of kilometers from different parts of the country. This is the world of fairy tales and entertainment, which will tell you how Russian toy has become a work of art.

Please, note!
There is a workshop, where you can paint a toy or matryoshka, make your own doll, felt a pair of woolly boots and take it as a souvenir.
