Interesting destintions to visit
Moose Biostation. Works since 2002. Opened in December 2015 after reconstruction. Here it is possible to touch and feed an elk, learn everything about their life.
Arboretum. Opened in 2014. The themes of the exhibition are intertwined with three themes - the diversity of Russia's forests, the animal world of the Moscow region, and the work of forest workers. The arboretum is located next to the Alekseevskaya grove (a site of 200-year-old pine and linden forests). The landscape of the grove still traces the features of the planning of a country estate of the turn of the 17th — 18th centuries, barrows of the 12th century.
Museum "Russian life". Exists since 1998, in 2015 it is reconstructed. The peasant and suburban life of the turn of the XIX — XX centuries and the economy of the Vyatichi period of the colonization of the r. Moscow (X century).
Tower for bird watching on the Chugunomu bridge (Mytischi). Shallow waters and reed beds are well visible from the tower. Interesting to visit in spring and autumn, during the mass bird migration.
