A visit to the Archeology Museum: The Museum is one of the oldest secular buildings in Kursk. Its collections tell the eventful history of Kurse, beginning from distant antiquity up through the 20th century.
A trip to the Kursk Korennaya Pustyn, the active monastery. Exactly on this spot, in the late 13th century, in the roots of an old tree, the Icon of the Mother of God “The Portent” was found, and the miraculous spring began to flow.

We invite you to immerse yourself in the touching and tender world of the Russian poet Afanasy Fet in his museum estate in the village of Vorobievka. The house, recently reopened after restoration, features the original atmosphere recreated according to old photographs and memoirs: a study with a desk and writing accessories, a library with a collection of old books, a cozy billiards room and welcoming guest rooms with a view over an amazing park. Leo Tolstoy and Pyotr Tchaikovsky loved staying here.
