There is in Tver region on the Volga river a town Kimry with the unique wooden architecture built in the XIX century by the rich merchants. That time Kimry had the name of the shoes capital because since 16th century the village had been famous with this handicraft. The merchants wanted to build the houses on the level of the big cities Moscow and Saint-Petersburg.
⠀This is so sad that now the town and all the houses are on the decline. It seems that the government does nothing to conserve this unique heritage and attract more tourists.
Yet I don’t know how but I want to change the situation and restore all the houses, recreate the atmosphere of the old merchant’s town and organize the tours to Kimry for you. You won’t see this Russia nowhere else.
