What awaits you
Immersion in the world of the past Unlike most of the Yaroslavl merchant churches, the Church of St. John the Baptist was built "by the whole world." You will play the role of townspeople and will be able to contribute to its construction. And I will tell you why the Tolchkovskaya Sloboda got such a name, where the Slobozhians worked in the old days, with whom they argued and why they went to Kazan. In addition, I will remember the famous people associated with her: Tsar Alexei Romanov, the artist Vereshchagin and the Minister of Finance Witte
Secrets of ancient crafts The Church of St. John the Baptist is a masterpiece of Russian wooden architecture. You will learn how the buildings were built and decorated in the old days, and you will get acquainted with the famous "Yaroslavl five-flower". You will also reveal what new techniques the architects used in the construction of the temple, see the "diamond rustic" and master one ancient technological process. Consider archival photos and imagine what this corner of ancient Yaroslavl looked like 100 years ago.
