The Krapivna Museum is located in a merchant’s house in the center of an old town, a unique open-air museum. The provincial town of Krapivna has hardly changed over time. All you need is some imagination, and unhurried atmosphere of the 19th century comes to life.
In the museum you will learn about the rich history of the town and the life of various social classes. Here you will not only feel the spirit of the era, but will have a chance to become part of it, try on historical costumes, write a postcard with a quill, and look through an old album.
You can stroll through the town of Leo Tolstoy and Gleb Uspensky, and then have a cup of aromatic herbal tea with home-made honey and jam.
The official symbol and trademark of the town is nettle (krapiva in Russian) depicted on its coat of arms. In the museum you can learn about the amazing properties of this plant and create your own nettle amulet.
