    Unfortunately there is no any restarurant, nor even a proper snack place nearby.
    Howevere here are some options:

    - there is a kiosk on the estates territory, which is opened till about 4pm and sells chips, nuts and other non-liquid snacks
    - a couple of meters off the estate, just near the pond, there is a small store, where one can buy different drinks, ice cream, bread, chees, etc...... but don't expect the seller to speak ANY foreign language

Muranovo Favorites

    river Talitsa

    by Pablos_new Written Jun 10, 2004

    Favorite thing: It is almost over 15 years since I have a dacha (summer cottage) at the banks of river Talitsa just in 5-10 km from Muranovo. And shame on me !!! this is for the first time I visited this place ;-(

    Fondest memory: Calm and quite life of the village combines silence of museum-estate, farmers hard life around, careless dachas' life and closeness of rich villas behind high fences. Muranovo is very eclectic - it is life of Moscow region compressed in a small territory.
