Light Foundation

What do you associate Russian nature with? With a calmness, some mystique, and also with a fog that creates a certain atmosphere and changes the character of everything that you saw during the day. Sooner or later, the fog fades, is broken by light.
After walking through the difficult part of the route in the pine forest from the village of Mednoye, you will see a village emerging from the fog, where you can stay at and put your thoughts in order. Here, in the houses of the Ghost village, there is the Light Foundation. The Light Foundation complex consists of several buildings and can host exhibitions, but its main and permanent exhibit is the light that clears the fog and forest thickets on the way.
