Pereslavl, Russia – a unique private museum of Slavic Mythology and Fairy Tales is located near the old city of Pereslavl -Zalesskij, 100 km to the north from Moscow. The exhibition presents a combination of visual, text, design and interior features, as well wax statues of some of traditional Russian/Slavic spirits and evil/good deities.

Unfortunately there is still no official museum dedicated to pre-Christian culture of Slavs here, probably because of aggressive position of the Church towards this topic. This museum in some cases looks too DIY, but you can notice how much love and skills were put in the creation of it. You will now engage in our virtual museum tour with us! h/t (Ivan Svarozic)
