December 7, 2017 Florencio Paulino

Arkhangelsk (Russian: Арха́нгельск, IPA: [ɐrˈxanɡʲɪlʲsk]), also known in English as Archangel and Archangelsk, is a city and the administrative center of Arkhangelsk Oblast, in the north of European Russia. It lies on both banks of the Northern Dvina River near its exit into the White Sea. The city spreads for over 40 kilometers (25 mi) along the banks of the river and numerous islands of its delta. Arkhangelsk was the chief seaport of medieval and early modern Russia until 1703. A 1,133-kilometer-long (704 mi) railway runs from Arkhangelsk to Moscow via Vologda and Yaroslavl, and air travel is served by the Talagi Airport and a smaller Vaskovo Airport. As of the 2010 Census, the city's population was 348,783, down from 356,051 recorded in the 2002 Census, and further down from 415,921 recorded in the 1989 Census.

A wonderful outdoor museum where you can see wooden buildings from Russia"s past. A number of the churches you can go inside a have a look around. Bring a picnic and a bottle of wine and you just had a nice day out in nature. Bring bug spray. I would love to see in the winter

the Soviets did one thing right in the region - they saved old buildings by bringing them to the museum. It is a truly fantastic place to explore history, especially, if you are into architecture.

Pedestrian Chumbarova-Luchinskogo Avenue

This is a pedestrian street in Arkhangelsk with a variety of historic wooden buildings.

Reviewed By LLCJ54 - Alamo, California

This short street, unfortunately weed-strewn, gives one a good opportunity to see many different styles of architecture in Archangel without automobile interference. Many of the buildings are restored, Most of the buildings are restorations or replicas transplanted from other parts of the city. We did not have a chance to eat at any of the restaurants, including a Mexican restaurant (which seemed a little out of place.)

A good place for walking arround and live the magnificent sunset over the Dvina. The Arkhangelsk Embarkment deserves a stroll while learning the centuries of history of the very first port in Russia.

Arkhangelsk Merchant Yards

Reviewed By supersatisfied - Brampton, Ontario, Canada

We felt we were rushed through the museum and shown only 'chosen' parts. As we passed other interesting exhibits we were unable to take the time to explore. We were on a guided tour! My main complaint was the acoustics of the building. If you were not standing next to the guide, it was extremely difficult to hear her. The building is full of history so if you visit, make sure you have ample time to explore. By the way, none of the exhibits that we saw had any explanations in English which makes a visit very difficult without a guide.

I don't know this writer's work, but from the attention he draws, I'd guess he is beloved. Russians are proud of their heritage and eager to share it with all of us. This pedestrian boulevard has many statues honoring Russia's own.

Arhangelsk Local Lore Museum

Reviewed By 72DMM72 - Leeds, United Kingdom

There is no concession to those who don't speak Russian but if you go with a local there are some really interesting exhibits. A lot of thought has been given to the displays which tell the history of the region and the people. It includes a spectacular exhibit of items decorated with local Freshwater pearls - exquisite garments and icons. The building itself is well-preserved and very evocative.

Reviewed By a29r - Arkhangelsk, Russia

Наш Архангельский театр заслуживает самые лестные отзывы. Трупа театра очень профессиональные актеры, репертуар прекрасно подобран. Каждый спектакль хочется посмотреть не один раз. После реставрации Театр засиял с новой красотой изяществом. Очень рекомендую постановку "За двумя зайцами" и "Турандот". Интересные постановки и детских спектаклей, последний шедевр "Братец кролик" так впечатлил. что ходили три раза.

Just take a look at the monument itself and you'll see the real Pomor's spirit. Good to have, at least, one such sightseeing in our city.
