For history-lovers, we offer to visit Peter the Great`s Boat Museum-Estate “Botik”. That was the estate where Peter the Great spent his childhood with his toy fleet. That gave birth to the Russian Fleet, as a result of which Russia developed into a strong maritime power. Pereslavl-Zalessky is also well-known for its funny Museums, like Iron Museum, Teapot Museum, Trick and Savvy Museum, and others.
