Show-Model of the Golden Ring of Russia

A miniature world bursting with life

It took 2 years to develop and implement the project, during which 147 specialists — artists, 3D technology specialists, engineers and sound engineers — worked on creating a miniature world, keeping everything in top secret.

Trains arrive according to the timetable and people are hurrying on their way

"Calling cards" of the cities

Three hundred square meters gathered the most recognizable views of the cities of the Golden Ring and scenes from the way of Russian life.

In Ivanovo, brides in white dresses are running along the streets, and tours are made around the Rostov Kremlin. In Yaroslavl, there are fans crowded around the Arena 2000, and in Kostroma, it’s winter and people are skiing and snowboarding along the equipped slopes.

See how we created the layout. 1.5 years in 2 minutes

Scene plots

Each square centimeter of the show-model is full of stories and events, just like in real life. Shepherds are grazing herds, and lumberjacks are cutting down forest. Someone is heading to the rally, and someone is fixing a bike in the garage. Firefighters are rushing to a fire, and someone is off-roading in the woods.

Explore the layout and find many fascinating stories. Come with children, their emotions are worth seeing!

Night magic

Every 10 minutes, the night falls on the show-model. Cities are lit up, citizens switch on the light in the windows. But life does not stop, people are walking along the streets in the light of streetlights, and cars are rushing between the cities illuminating the road with car lights.
