There is a saying in Russia: Don’t bring a samovar to Tula. Want to know why?
You will definitely get the answer if you visit the Tula Museum of Samovars.
The museum houses an exhibition of various samovars — different in their form, size and materials. The biggest one holds 70 liters, while the tiniest samovar can contain no more than just three drops of water!
You will be guided through every stage of samovar production in the Tula area — from the late 18th century up to nowadays. The place is hugely recommended for all tea lovers and those interested in the Russian culture and artifacts!
