Museum and Expo Center
Plyos, Sobornaya Gora Street, 1
The museum tells about the early history of Plyos: an old town of Chuvil', the Plyos Fortress and a custom winery range. Many remarkable archaeological findings are collected there. Among them are a unique Alabuga treasure trove with 400 pieces of jewelry of the seventh century, symbols of dual belief system (pagan and Orthodox Christianity) and even a magical "stone of love".
You can also see there the two very familiar-looking monuments to Vasily I of Moscow who founded Plyos. The original portrait sculpture made in 1910 is in the museum and the replica is on the pedestal in front of the building. The replica was made 100 years later than the original.
The museum got its name thanks to the original building which was a Public Office. In different times there were the town council, a bank, a training school, an archive facility. In general, the building was a Public Office (Prisutstvennye mesta in Russian).ContactsWebsite+
