The project was started thanks to our children and their passion for building sets. We noticed how they are crazy about miniature building models and the possibility of seeing an entire city from a bird’s eye view. This is how we came up with the idea of opening a miniature architecture museum devoted to the cities of the Golden Ring of Russia.
Models of eight cities are presented in the museum; these cities are part of one of the most popular touristic routes in Russia. We recreated unique architecture monuments with great precision. Conservation architects manually did the modeling, assembling, and painting.
We wanted to draw not only the attention of tourists, but of the locals as well, while at the same time build a sense of respect and pride for the history of the city and the country. Also, we wanted to create a family-friendly place where anyone could get to know something new and be inspired for future trips.
