Izmailovo Kremlin is modeled after traditional Russian architecture and fairytale depictions of Old Russia. It includes a wooden replica of the summer palace of Tsar Alexei Mikhailovich, the father of Peter I, where visitors can experience a traditional Russian meal. The wooden church of St. Nicholas, named after the patron saint of crafts and trade, is the tallest wooden church in the country. It houses several single-subject museums, like Museum of bread, Museum of vodka and Museum of Russian folk crafts and toys.
