This summer, in July, I, my mother and the niece had a rest in Voronovo rest house. The rest house is near Moscow (about 40 km in the Kaluga direction). There it is possible to get by the car, or from the Tyoply Stan subway by bus No. 508 or a minibus No. 162. By bus to go to a stop “The Voronovo rest house, and the minibus stops directly at gate of rest house. Time of driving the bus hour fifteen - hour forty, on a minibus - about forty minutes (depends on a situation on the road. If you eat by car, be attentive! It is a lot of accidents and emergencies). A minibus it is more convenient, quicker and cheaper. As of the end of July the cost of the ticket for the bus twenty seven rubles, on a minibus - twenty rubles. The bus goes once an hour, a minibus everyone twenty - thirty minutes. On the weekend when there is a lot of the people, the “left“ minibus No. 110 to Troitsk approaches.

Now about living conditions. In the territory of rest house two cases are located: No. 1 and No. 2. The case No. 2, the restored ancient estate, is located at a main entrance where the minibus stops. In this case it is possible to have the room for three months. I do not know the price. The case No. 1 - the modern building built years fifteen - twenty back.

In a corridor the built-in cases for clothes. In number huge windows. One of walls of number represents a huge window with a balcony door and a transom. At windows of blinds. On a balcony two plastic chairs and a chair.
