The Museum of the Frog Princess is the first fairy tale museum in Rostov the Great. It opened on March 23rd, 2012 at the guest house “The Frog Princess”. How did the idea of creating a museum come up? Papers were found in the monograph by Boris Aleksandrovich Rybakov, “Paganism of Ancient Russia”, that the frog was a sacred creature for the Finno-Ugric tribe Meria, from which the Rostovites came from. So, the Russian fairy tale “The Frog Princess” could well have appeared on the shores of our Lake Nero. We really liked this version, and we allowed ourselves to dream up on this topic. This is how an interactive game-journey through the fairy tale “The Frog Princess” appeared.
You will face trials such as the choice of brides, just like royal sons did; you will show your skills, just like royal daughters-in-law did; you will try a refreshment from the miracle stove, in which Vasilisa the Wide baked bread; you will visit the Kingdom of Koshchey and fight the formidable king Koshchey the Immortal… And there is an exhibition of frog figures in our museum; there are more than 5,000 of them… Come to us. You will not regret it!
