Small museum

This small museum in Mustvee documents the schism between the Orthodox Church and the Old Believers. Guide very good at explaining the different outlooks and beliefs of the two groups

Небольшой, но уникальный музей

Островок русской культуры в Эстонии, рассказывает о быте староверов на Чудском озере. Интересно и самобытно.



Посещение музея староверов в Муствеэ

Интереснейший музей, большая коллекция бытовых предметов, картин и икон! Все предметы удобно и наглядно расставлены и развешаны в уютных комнатах музея! Приятный и милый хранитель всей коллекции...
