Walking down the hill from the Kremlin you will soon reach the quirky Khors gallery, the lakeside home and personal exhibition space of local artist Mikhail Selischev. As well as displaying his enamel based artworks, the gallery is also home to a small ‘museum’ which is filled with old samovars, spinning wheels, fabrics, balalaikas and other antique bits and bobs donated by locals.
The traditional wooden house structure also has a lovely garden, a roof top look out (called the ‘observation deck’) and simple village-style guest rooms for rent if you would like to stay the night. The guesthouse also has a real Russian banya and offers barbeques and boat trips in the summer for visitors, as well as occasional classes in enamel art. Room prices start at 1000Rbl.
