Tourist routes for winter holidays with curious and creative children KXan 36 Daily News

This is the legendary Nizhny Novgorod fair with fun in the ice city. And the Golden Khokhloma, who once painted the grayness of Kerzhatsky forest life with intricate patterns of berries and leaves. And Pavlovo with his elegant knives, elegant locks and fruity lemon trees on the windowsills. And handmade gingerbread gorodets.

“For children’s tourism in Nizhny Novgorod, it became very relaxed in the 800th anniversary year, when attractive spaces for recreation with children appeared,” says Sergey Yakovlev, Minister of Tourism and Crafts of the Nizhny Novgorod region. “There are more and more tourist routes and activities in the region that are of interest. The first national route “Intentionally #PROcrafts” is being developed, for the development of which a subsidy will be allocated in 2023 within the framework of the national project “Tourism and Hotel Industry” .

This route is due to the fact that about a third of Russia’s folk crafts are located in the Nizhny Novgorod region.

For example, you can get from Nizhny Novgorod by car or train in about an hour and a half to the world famous production of Golden Khokhloma in the city of Semenov, without exaggeration. Here tourists are waiting for the museum and tourist center “Golden Khokhloma”, the Museum “House of Spoon Seeds”, the Museum of Matryoshka and Traditional Toys, where those who wish can paint the nesting doll with their own hands and take it with them. . “Golden Khokhloma” is one of the largest modern museums of folk art wooden products in Russia.

Just 64 km from Nizhny Novgorod, on the banks of the Volga, is the oldest city in the region, Gorodets, founded in the 12th century. The way to it will take about an hour by private or public transport. Gorodets is famous not only for its master woodcarvers and paintings, but also for Gorodets gingerbread. In the Museum Quarter in the Old Town there is the Russian Samovar Terem, the Children’s Museum with its huge collection of toys from different eras, the Museum of Local Lore and the Gorodetsky Gingerbread Museum.

“Gorodets is a pearl in the necklace of small towns in Russia,” says Yevgenia Gunyakova, head of the Department of the Gorodetsky District Tourist Information Center. “Here you will certainly feel the quiet way of life of the Volga city, its special beauty and harmony”.

Tourists have long chosen Gorodets. Every year the tourist flow increases due to the diversity and the opening of new exhibitions, programs and routes.

Yes, and in Nizhny Novgorod there are enough “magnets” for tourists of all ages: the historical center with the old stone Kremlin, museums, exhibitions, pedestrian streets. And lots of winter fun.

In addition, the city has a factory “Ariel”, which produces unique decorations for Christmas trees. Guests will be shown the shops there, and then they will be allowed to paint a glass New Year’s toy on their own. And if the “first pancake” turns out to be lumpy, then in the company store you can always buy something that everyone will definitely like. Attention! You need to sign up for excursions in advance – for the New Year holidays, every day is already taken. But other weekends will be like this, and then spring break will come. Make toys for the New Year 2024.

“It is extremely difficult to surprise a modern child with something. Whether it is from Moscow, Nizhny Novgorod or somewhere else,” says Tatyana Moshkova, a member of the Nizhny Novgorod Guild of Guides. “Everywhere there is the Internet and shops with a huge selection of children’s items, bright toys and other things. However, this is all the same from Kaliningrad to Kamchatka. In Nizhny Novgorod, in “Arieli”, in Semenov, the emphasis is on personal participation. In Gorodets, for example, children learn what a birch burl is and what can be done with it. They mold with clay, learn painting from Gorodets, see “what is gold embroidery. There are a lot of original things there. And you can tell that they are interested when they understand that there is a place in the world with unique, author’s things” .
