Pereslavl-Zalessky is called the cradle of the Russian navy. It was on the shores of Lake Pleshcheevo that Peter I, at a young age, built the first Russian fleet, which went down in history under the somewhat unusual name "amusing". But since that time, there have been many conjectures and mysteries associated with the activities of the young king in our city. On the excursion, you will learn the true versions of historical events and be able to compare them with folk legends.

What awaits you
Is the official version of the reason for the very first visits of Peter I to Pereslavl correct? What was the young Tsar's mother Natalya Kirillovna hiding when she hid one of the young hawks in the Pereslavl Fyodorov Monastery? And how did Anna Yaguzhinskaya, the wife of the prosecutor of the Senate under Peter, find herself connected with this monastery? Who was Andrei Petrov, son of Vzimkov, who was buried near the walls of the Fedorov Cathedral of the Pereslavl women's monastery in reality? And what did the very first palace, built by the decree of Tsar Peter I, look like?
Centuries have passed, and historians are still looking for answers to these questions. And the answers to them are indirectly enclosed in ancient documents, in the inscriptions on the tombstones that were previously on the monastery territory; in the richest contributions to the Fedorov monastery of that time; within the walls of ancient cells and temples that remember the nuns of the monastery; in the popular rumor of the 17th - 18th centuries.
Let's try to figure it all out, and at the same time make a journey in the footsteps of the young Peter the Great:
- we will visit the "royal monastery" - the Pereslavl Feodorovsky convent;
- we will see in Pereslavl what else Tsar Peter looked at as antiquities;
- we will get to the southern shore of the reserved Pleshcheyevo Lake, where the first Russian ships were built and launched more than three hundred years ago;
- we will see the remains of Peter the Great's "Business Dvor" and the only surviving ship from the Peter's amusing flotilla - the bot "Fortuna", or "Botik" - that's how the people of Pereslavl affectionately call it.
You will also have the opportunity to touch the monastery shrine - the miraculous Andronikovskaya icon of the Mother of God, and I will tell you about the Orthodox miracle that I witnessed.
Additionally, admission tickets to the territory and to the "Botny House" of the Museum-Estate "Botik of Peter I" (110 rubles per person) are paid on the spot.
