What to do here:

The scenery was created in the Soviet period for filming historical films of the XIX century. All houses, shops, churches and taverns are just an empty dummy made of plywood and plaster. But the decorations are very realistic, down to such details as street lamps, pavement, gateways, signs on the houses. And if at first it seems that there is a gray and dreary abandoned city in front of you, then the farther you go deeper into the streets and streets, the more you are absorbed by the special atmosphere reigning here. Cityscapes of old Moscow were recreated on a plot of 3,000 square meters, and in total more than forty paintings were shot here.

Initially, this plywood city with a church, a manor’s estate and other buildings was created for the filming of the film “The Horseman named Death”. And if they were not so picturesque and authentic, they would also be dismantled and burned, as they usually do after the end of the shooting. But Karen Shakhnazarov’s colleagues liked the scenery so much that they decided to leave it - and it would come in handy.

And they did it right, because in the following years dozens of historical dramas and comedies were shot here, among them “State Councilor”, “Poor Nastya”, “Doctor Zhivago”, “Azazel”, “Save the Emperor” and many others. Moscow streets became Parisian, Berlin, Copenhagen and even Tbilisi, signboards changed in different languages, architectural elements characteristic of a particular country and epoch were attached. But the main decoration remained unchanged.

However, connoisseurs of history and architecture argue that there was nothing like this in Moscow either in the 19th or in any other century - this is nothing more than the fantasy of production directors. But what difference does it make if the residential houses of ordinary people, and the lordly chambers, and the palace of the nobility next to the fire tower look so realistic that it seems so - now they will rush along the bridge along the bridge in a cloak and wide-brimmed hat, and from the corner a gilded carriage will roll out behind the velvet curtains of which the princess dressed up for the ball languishes.
