(how to acquaint the kid with history of the fine arts)


Here will already need a certain preparation - some time (as a rule, small) on collecting all information necessary for you. You like some country? Or era? Or corner of Russia? You once somewhere visited and want to share pleasant memories with children? Or you dream to get somewhere, but real travel is still impossible? It is possible to arrange “magic travel on a time machine“ THERE WHERE YOU WANT!

Thinking out it, you plunge into the atmosphere of time and the place where were going to go. So, where you would like?
