Church of St. Sergius of Radonezh on the Kulikovo Field, built in 1913-1917, is a monument-church standing on the alleged site of the Battle of Kulikovo (1380) in the southeast of Tula Oblast, about 122 km from Tula.

The architect of the church was Alexey Viktorovich Shchusev. An interesting feature of this church is that one of its towers is crowned by a dome in the shape of a helmet. The Kulikovo Field on Google Maps. Photos by: Vadim Razumov.

This unique private museum is located in Tula region, in the village of Chernousovo. If you drive on Simferopol highway, it is about 300 km from Moscow.

The museum was founded by Mikhail Krasinets, a former auto mechanic of the USSR national team, in 1994-1995. The collection includes more than 200 cars exhibited in the open air. That’s why most of them, unfortunately, are in a fairly poor condition.
