Excursion to Alapayevsk and Nizhniaya Sinyachikha will allow you to learn more about the spiritual and historical life of the Urals. Excursion to Nizhniaya Sinyachikha will be especially entertaining for those interested in architecture. Through perseverance and diligence of local art dealers, the world's only museum of wooden architecture in the open air was created here. For many years, since the mid-20th century this place contains the exhibits from all over the Urals : chapels, cottages, small church buildings. The most ancient peasant house dates from the mid 17th century. Alapayevsk is primarily renowned for briefly being a home for the famous Russian composer Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky. In his memory people in Alapaevsk created a museum. The exhibit of the most interest here is the collection of ancient musical instruments. This collection is truly admirable. In addition to it you will be shown everyday objects, which Pyotr Tchaikovsky used as a little boy, because here is where he spent his childhood. During the tour to Alapayevsk, you will learn that the city is a place of pilgrimage for Orthodox Christians, as well as for those interested in the history of Russia. There is a convent dedicated to the memory of the royal Romanov family. It is due to the fact that here in Alapayevsk members of this dynasty were shot.
