   Elk island holds not only the forest that once surrounded the Kremlin, but the history of the rural lifestyle of the ancestors. You can visit the picturesque estate LOSINOOSTROVSKY forest Park, where is located one of the visitor centres of the National Park  the Museum exhibitionRussian hut“. There are objects of folk everyday life of XIX – XX centuries, archaeological finds from the excavations of burial mounds of the Slavs-Vyatichi. These excavations were made in “Elk islandin 1989. The most interesting object is a collection of spinning wheels XIX – XX centuries, collected in the Yaroslavl, Vologda and Kostroma regions, functioning wooden loom of the first half of the 20th century, the collection of the Arkhangelsk folk clay toys.

    There is a network of routes in the Elk Island. The forest of the Park is really rich; you can see herer birches,  oaks and elms, lindens, aspens, hazel, blueberries, cranberries; wild ginger.

   All this creates a feeling of fabulous primeval forest and it is hard to believe that you are in the boundaries of Moscow, 2 km from Yaroslavl highway and just 15 km from the Kremlin.
