Domestic Magic Area
The complex is dedicated to traditions and hardships of life in Russia.
The Area consists of an exhibition pavilion - anomalous zone, ritual and household structures. The Area allows tourists to feel the possible closest contact with the magic Russian hinterland. And this magic is not of a divine nature, but it is ridiculous and routine, and it is not in a miracle, but appears in a touching ability of people to adapt to circumstances. Funerals, weddings, mushroom picking, christenings – all these traditions and much more you can see here.

Frozen Time Memorial
The tour down the Volkhov river leads through a swampy area where the bitterest battles took place during the Second World war. Now this place is called the Death Valle.
Approaching the Memorial, travellers will notice narrow copper sheets sticking out of the water. Their number grows over time, they lead to the pier in the village Selishchi, where the Memorial is located.
The Memorial building is the destroyed count Arakcheev's military barracks, one of six built in the Novgorod region. The history of Selishchi village began precisely with them.
To enter the Memorial, you need to go down the cleft in the center of the wheat field, which will lead visitors to the lower level of the Memorial. The first thing that catches your eye is the walls of the exhibition corridors covered with earth, grass and stones.
Going up to the first floor, you can see everything happening on the lower level, as well as two wings: the reconstructed wing on one side, and left in ruins on the other.
