This isn’t ancient at all; it’s actually a quite-recent (built in the 1990s) cultural and entertainment complex. It’s in a pseudo-Byzantine style, based loosely on what Russian palaces looked like in pre-Petrine times, but more inspired by Russian fairy tales. Many use the complex for civil weddings as it has a wedding palace, a restaurant, and bars. However, it’s also an amusement park/open-air museum for children on the theme of “Old Russia”. There’s a replica pre-Revolutionary rural wooden Russian church, but people don’t use it for weddings. To wrap it up, it has a large shopping area that sells the usual sort of tchotchkes. All in all, a fun place to take the family on a weekend or to have one’s wedding (even if one has a church wedding, like most of Europe, one has to have a civil ceremony, too, or the marriage isn’t legit in the eyes of the state).

These people are re-enactors… in this case, they’re re-enacting events of the Battle of Stalingrad. All the Westerners are beating their chests and telling us how they’re going to bring Russia down with sanctions. I’d observe that the West has NEVER succeeded in putting down Russia, so, why do they think that they have it in the bag this time? In any case, what they’re threatening doesn’t even come up to 10 percent of what the Motherland survived in the VOV. Eat shit and die, Republican Party… you wouldn’t be able to take a fraction of what we Russians can take standing on our heads!
ALL THOSE WHO MARCH ON RUSSIA WILL BE PUT TO DEATH…
