What awaits you

Echoes of the Tsar's Fortress On the site of the wooden prison, you will see what reminds of the first fortress that gave its name to the city. You will walk along the former market square, look for traces of a buried lake in the center of Yoshkar-Ola, see ancient temples and find out what relation Chichikov from "Dead Souls" has to Tsarevokokshaisk

Merchant heritage In the quiet streets, where, like three hundred years ago, the houses of the city's most famous and richest merchants stand, you will see rare examples of Classicism, Baroque and Art Nouveau performed by provincial pre-revolutionary masters. The walk will be accompanied by unique facts from the life of the owners of the houses, for example, you will hear the legends about the merchant Pchelin and the flooded basements of the Naumov house, as well as the story of how Korepova's widow, left with 10 children, influenced the development of the Mari capital

Soviet city From the pre-revolutionary era, you will be transported to Soviet buildings, stroll through the theater district and get acquainted with the history of iconic houses on Chavaina Boulevard, reminiscent of the Stalinist Empire style. You will find out what relation the refrigerator plant has to the music school, why the Soviet hotel could not be opened for 8 years and after which Pushkin a street in the city could be named. You will also see how the ban on excesses influenced the construction of a residential building in the center of Yoshkar-Ola

Petersburg underground At the end of the tour, you will see the works of the artist from St. Petersburg, who returned to his hometown during the pandemic. His sgraffito-style street art recently graced buildings in the city center, sparking controversy among residents. We will show you where to find in the city courtyards-wells with ceremonial ones reminiscent of St. Petersburg. By the way, in one of them there is a wine-glass room where you can taste dishes of the national cuisine. But how safe it is and what awaits you if you want to stay there, we will tell you on the excursion.
