The Museum and Railway Station Complex "Kozlova Zaseka" sends all its visitors to the glorious times of the end of the 19th century.
Stories say that the name of one of the commanders of the zemstvo detachment of the Big Zasechnaya Cherta, which protected these places from the raids of the Crimean Tatars, is born by the station itself "Kozlova Zaseka" and its surroundings.
There are mirrors on the walls, in which our fellow countrymen looked as lately as 150 years ago, and an old clock regularly counts down the seconds from the time when the newly laid railway was a curiosity for locals.
The Station-Museum "Kozlova Zaseka" today meets trains from Tula as well. Most often, these are suburban trains with summer residents and freight trains. Long-distance trains pass along the platform, taking residents of Moscow, St. Petersburg, and Tula with them to the seas.
Once here, our famous fellow countryman Lev Nikolayevich Tolstoy was waiting for the arrival of the locomotive. How did the new railway influence his work and fate? Where was he going? To Moscow, on important business? To Chern, to stay with his friend, Ivan Sergeyevich Turgenev?

Here, you may take commemorative pictures against the background of ancient forests and immerse yourself in the station life of the early 20th century.Be sure to stop by this quiet and cozy place on the way to Yasnaya Polyana, to drink tea with a pryanik in the buffet, to wave to passing trains, to fill your weekend with impressions of the entourage of the measured life of tsarist Russia.
