On an excursion with the whole family

Vacation is a great time to change your surroundings, and you don't have to go on an exotic tour to do it. It is enough to go on an interesting excursion with a child - and a kaleidoscope of impressions is provided for you

Parents need to approach the holidays consciously. Resist the temptation to send your child to the grandmother for the whole week, consoling yourself with the fact that he will get enough sleep and sit in front of the TV and computer to his heart's content. Yes, let the child get enough sleep, but a couple of days is enough for this. The rest of the time "kill" is not necessary! Try to take a vacation during the holidays and spend time with your child - interesting and tasteful. Take care of your leisure time in advance. Make a rough entertainment plan. One or two trips to a theater or museum, one to a children's center or park. Travel has always been considered the best cure for everyday routine. Unfortunately, not everyone can afford a trip abroad, and not every parent will dare to acclimatize their child in the middle of the school year. But a mini-trip, or rather, an excursion, is just what you need.


Children from 8 to 12 years old, who are always curious about how and what the things around them are made of, will be interested in the so-called factory tours. This is an ideal option in order to interest the child in excursions in general. To get new vivid impressions, you do not even need to travel outside the capital.

"Soyuzmultfilm" - the famous studio where children will see how cartoons are born, how the artist creates images, sketches, what noses and ears are made of, what is needed in order to the picture came to life. You can look into the “memories locker”, where all the dolls are stored, with the help of which our favorite cartoons were filmed. At the end of the tour, the children will be shown the latest cartoons from the collection of the Soyuzmultfilm studio.

An equally interesting excursion with a visit to the domestic "dream factory" - Mosfilm cinema concern - game cars, film sets, a unique museum of costumes and props. Among them are the royal throne from the movie "Boris Godunov" and the famous crown of the Russian Empire from the movie of the same name. There is no doubt that the children will be interested in other industries as well. For example, at the Krugozor factory they will be shown how dolls and other toys are born, at the pencil factory. L.B. Krasin's children will see what pencils are made of; on an excursion with a visit to the Children's Literature publishing house, they will see the book world from the inside. At the Babaevskoye and Rot Front confectionery factories children will witness the birth of various sweets, cookies, gingerbread and cakes with indispensable tasting. Oil Refinery, Hammer and Sickle Factory and Slava Clock Factory


Most of these tours are also suitable for children aged 8-12. Since all crafts are to varying degrees removed from Moscow, such a trip is a trip for the whole day. But children's curiosity will be fully satisfied.

For example, at the Gzhel porcelain factory children are shown the best samples of Gzhel porcelain, and then they demonstrate how it is all done: shapeless clay on a potter's wheel or in the hands of craftsmen turns into various utensils or toys. After all the technological processing, the products go to the artists' workshop for painting, and the children are happy to watch how this happens. In conclusion, little sightseers are given the opportunity to draw the Gzhel plot themselves (under the guidance of a mentor) and even sculpt something from special Gzhel clay!

Excursion routes to places of folk crafts are quite diverse: here are Bogorodskaya toy, and factory of church utensils in Sofrino, andCrystal Museum in the city of Gus-Khrustalny, porcelain factories in Kuzyaevo and Pavlovsky Posad (there are also the famous Pavloposad shawls), as well as painting trays and batik in Zhostovo, lacquer miniature in Fedoskino, gold embroidery in Torzhok, wood carving, bones and metal in Khotkovo and much more.


Visiting architectural monuments near Moscow can be interesting for both adults and children of any age. Everyone will find something of their own there - someone will be fascinated by history, someone will just admire the beauty and grandeur of ancient buildings and interiors. Many names from the school curriculum will come to life for your children.

In general, on the territory of the Moscow region there are about 150 estates, which are somehow connected with the names of prominent people. Among them are Abramtsevo, where the Vasnetsov brothers lived and worked for a long time, I.E. Repin, V.D. Polenov. New Jerusalem - a monastery, the main temple of which was created in the image and likeness of the Jerusalem Church of the Holy Sepulcher, Savvino-Storozhevsky Monastery in Zvenigorod, where the paintings by Andrei Rublev were preserved, Kolomensky Kremlin of the 16th century with paintings by Theophanes the Greek, picturesque and rich in history Arkhangelskoe, where a real mineral spring beats in the park. Historical places can be listed endlessly - Trinity-Sergius Lavra, Ostafyevo, Pushkin reserves Zakharovo and Bolshie Vyazemy, poetic Muranovo, Melikhovo - A.P. Chekhov etc.


The choice of excursions in Moscow is so extensive that their organizers have to use all their creative imagination to make the consumer choose them. Thanks to this, new original routes and developments appear on the capital market.

An unusual direction is offered by the company "Golden Crane" - "Pagan holidays near Mozhaisk". Ancient holidays are scheduled here for the whole year. One of the spring ones is Yarilina Srecha, a holiday dedicated to the solar god Yarila. A lot of interesting things await those who go on this day by bus beyond Mozhaisk: a magical path to the Far Far Away Kingdom, gatherings at the samovar and even communication with the brownie!

But the company "Vladimir Compound" has developed an unusual excursion, for which you do not need to travel outside of Moscow at all. This exciting evening tour is called "Secrets of Moscow Ghosts". In it, the history of the city is intertwined with mysterious events and formidable omens. Here are fatal curses that come true, and mysterious phenomena, and the secrets of Moscow underground passages, and ghost roads, and even a mysterious white knight on the Kremlin wall.

These and similar excursions are more suitable for older children - from 12-14 years old. The names speak for themselves: "Moscow in Stalin's times", "The most notorious crimes from the archives of the Metropolitan Police" (for children from 14 years old - with a visit to the Museum of the Ministry of Internal Affairs), " Consultant with a hoof" (based on the pages of "The Master and Margarita" by M. Bulgakov), "The history of world religions in the churches of Moscow", "Prisoners of Moscow monasteries".
