While in other parts of Russia these taditional wooden houses are mostly not mentioned at all by the local tourist-guides this seems to be a bit different in Votkinsk where they make the perfect surroundings of the Tchaikowsky-museum.
I saw 4 big blocks of ancient houses next to the Tchaikowski-museum and I could walk there easily within the spare-time of 30 minutes that we were given by our tourguide after the visit of the museum. There was a souvenirshop as well, But I prefered to take a closer look at these lovely traditional wooden houses.
All of these houses were well maintained and people were living there. Nevertheless it was no problem at all to take pics and all local people who I met in the streets were friendly and also a bit amused about a tourist taking pics of their houses...
There are some interesting carriges inside a shed that you will pass by ,when leaving the museum about Tchaikosky. These carriages were the only kind of transportation in the time, when the famous composer spent 8 years of his childhood in Votkinsk and such carriages were also used, when all of the family left Votkinsk forever, because the father changed to a job in Moscow first and later in St. Petersburg. Like some of the other exhibits in the museum they certainly cant be the original carriages that the family had used, but rather similar ones of about that time.
This is one of the 4 old wooden houses that you will pass by on your way from the large car-park to the Tschaikowsky-museum. It looks interesting because it is painted in different colors and it also has an interesting extra-window of the roof. In this part of Votkinsk you will not find any modern building, everything was built in the traditional way of the 19th centrury and before that !
Next to the Tschaikowsky-museum you will find lots of lovely houses like the ones on my photographs. All of them are inhabited and maintained in the most perfect way. But once again these buildings would never be a reason for a local tourguide to take us there, instead they send you to souvenirshops etc. for the free-time of 30 minutes that you will have after a visit to the Tschaikowsky-museum.
This small construction is next to the Tschaikowski-museum in the backpart of the park and also looking over to the backstreet, where I have taken my pics 1 & 3-5.
It might have been a covered place for the orchestra when performing works of Tschaikowsky in that park.
The modern city of Votkinsk is across the lake and unfortunately we did see it just from that large distance from the car-parking-area next to the Tschaikowski-museum.
There are a few interesting buildings close to the lake, one of them looks a bit like a greek temple with columns, maybe an orchestra-hall or something similar.
Directely at the car-park you will see that anchor !
