The Salt of Russian Land guided tour runs every Thursday. There is a reason why Staraya Russa is called “salt town.” It is famous for the salt produced from mineral water using traditional methods. Explore the resort town with its salt-water lakes and visit the Medieval Staraya Russa Estate Museum with an operating open-pan salt-maker, the symbol of this interactive museum.
In summer, you can visit an archaeological site that was studied by researchers to recreate a medieval estate in Staraya Russa.
