On Saturday, February 13, the regional stage of the XXXIX All-Russian mass race "Ski Track of Russia" will take place in Tver. The central site of the main sports festival of winter will be the field behind the Decathlon sporting goods hypermarket (109 Oktyabrsky prospect). Here, during the competition, on a territory with a total area of more than 15 thousand square meters, a whole town with a stage, tents, entertainment areas, a field kitchen, and a ski track designed for a large number of participants will be located.
It is expected that several thousand children and adults from all municipalities of the region will go to the start of the regional stage of the "Ski Track of Russia" in Tver. Among them will be both professional athletes and simply lovers of a healthy lifestyle and outdoor activities.

Of course, it is most convenient to take a personal vehicle, in which you can take all the necessary sports equipment with you. The Decathlon has a large parking lot. Regular buses of routes No. 15, 31, 33, 42, 36, 116, 117, 227 also run to the venue of the Ski Track in Tver. We remind you that the fare with a card is 25 rubles, in cash - 29 rubles.

From February 9 to February 12, registration of the participants of the regional stage of the All-Russian race was held in the Decathlon hypermarket. For those who did not have time, it will be possible to register on February 13 at the venue of the competition from 9:30 to 11:45. In order to obtain a branded bib number and cap (their number is limited), you must present a passport or birth certificate and a certificate of admission from a doctor. Adults (18 years of age and older) can provide a personal statement of personal responsibility for their health instead of a medical certificate. It is clear that no one will interfere with the start and skiers who have not passed registration. The only thing is that they will not be able to receive a memorable souvenir about the participation of the Ski Track of Russia, but positive emotions are guaranteed to everyone.
This year the program of the regional stage "Ski tracks of Russia" has undergone some changes due to the epidemiological situation. First of all, the number of races has been increased, which will reduce the number of participants in each of them.

Ancient Tver is the lot of Prince Alexander Nevsky, a long-term rival of Moscow in the struggle for leadership among Russian cities, a transshipment base between the old and new capitals of the empire. Enterprising and fearless Tver merchants persistently mastered new trade routes, the name of Afanasy Nikitin is revered here on a par with the prince's. To this day, the atmosphere of the restless and solid life of the rich Russian province near both capitals has been preserved on these streets.
To learn more about the history of Tver and the life of its inhabitants, the Museum of Tver Life in an old baroque merchant mansion will help. The rooms are furnished with original furniture from the beginning of the last century, sideboards contain china sets, and samovars on the tables. A separate hall is reserved for exhibits from the Belsk treasure - gold and silver dishes, frames of famous icons, decorated with precious stones.
A safe option is a trip to the Tver Circus (office. site), where the best Russian and foreign troupes perform. There is no full-fledged zoo in Tver, but the shopping center "Babylon" on Blvd. Tsanova operates a petting zoo with a nursery. Young visitors interact with rabbits, kids, guinea pigs, jump on trampolines or wallow in the dry pool while their parents are busy shopping.
On the stage of the Tver Youth Theater (office site) there are children's fairy tales - "Beauty and the Beast", "The Riddle of the Ryaba Chicken", "Puss in Boots", "Chippolino". For schoolchildren - "Minor" and "Dead Souls". The theater has a children's studio. The Tver Puppet Theater (off. Ait) also pleases children with many performances on themes from Russian, foreign and literary tales. The foyer is decorated with a gallery of drawings made by the audience after the performances.
The Experimentorium Museum of Entertaining Sciences attracts young researchers by participating in chemical and physical experiments. They catch lightning with their hands, sit on nails, measure the strength of their own screams, paint with sand. The cafe treats with oxygen cocktails and nano-ice cream.
Generally speaking, a museum representing scientific discoveries is a very unattractive institution promising to listen to boring lectures. But the Tver Experimentium is designed to change the usual point of view, allowing its young visitors not only to touch the exhibits, but also to do whatever they want with them. There are over 100 accessible exhibits, representing virtually all sciences, from physics to anatomy. This unusual institution is at the beginning of the list where to go with children in Tver is a must.
Every child here has the opportunity to appear as a real scientist, which, perhaps, will awaken in him new aspirations and push him to the idea of making the world a better place. In this museum, each visitor will have many unique opportunities: to measure the strength of his own scream, sit as a yogi on nails, lift his friend with one hand, catch an electric lightning in his hands, or paint a picture of sand.
In the Goat Museum, visitors are greeted with hundreds of images of the city's talisman in the most unexpected scenes, poses and variations. A cheerful goat face made of glass, metal, wood and plastic winks at visitors from every wall. There are songs about the beloved artiodactyl (and this is not only the well-known hit about the gray goat).
It is said that a long time ago a curious goat wandered into the belfry, got entangled in the ropes of the bells with its horns and sounded the alarm. The townspeople woke up - and in time, the adversaries were already climbing the walls. Since then, the goats have enjoyed authority and love in Tver.
