1. Once, long ago, on the territory of Ostankino estate of the Sheremetev family was the cemetery… suicide. Today it is difficult to judge the heavy energy of a place or a fatal combination of circumstances, but many serfs actress had been drowned in the lakes.

2. “The Tretyakov gallery”.

There is an opinion that the paintings are on display in the gallery carry a wide variety of energy and… effects. For example, the image of Maria Lopukhina may not look at the girls of marriageable age. This legend appeared, thanks to the gossip of society that Mary’s father, Ivan Lopukhin was a representative of the Masonic Lodge and a famous mystic. And that he lured the spirit daughter in the portrait, which died soon after it was written.

By the way, it should be noted that in this monastery there is a sign: who will be added to Savushkino white stone wall of the tower and make a love wish, it will come true. So don’t forget about it.

5. “Magic clock”.

Watches that are at house number 2, Spartakovskaya street, made famous, in his time, warlock and wizard Yakov Bruce.

The house itself belonged to count Musin-Pushkin, who just laughed at Bruce and then the wizard cursed: “Let him be cursed this watch and show only the bad!”. Interesting fact – the rocks from which Board hours during the world wars and the revolution became blood-red.

6. In 1812 there occurred the bloody battle of Russian and French armies. Then killed an incredible number of soldiers who were buried in mass graves on “the Napoleonic mounds”. They were buried without burial service and mixed up Russian and French.

But is it really? I don’t think so. There’s a place called “White Gods”. Here is a sculpture that many consider to be the extant artifact from a pagan culture. This image of a man with the head of an animal (perhaps a lion), which was worshipped by the local population. And many do believe that this image of one of the gods…

As is clear from the name – are buried only foreigners, and Gentiles. Found this place in 1771, when the plague literally “mowed” a tremendous amount of people. Then perished so many people that the places in cemeteries is simply not enough. A notable feature of the “Infidel crypts” is heard coming from nowhere the sound of the flute, and even the clank of chains.

9. It would seem, Sofrino, the usual urban-type settlement. Here live about 15000 people, there are two schools and several churches…

But not architecture, and educational institutions attract people! Come here to “touch” to extraterrestrial civilizations! It is in Sofrino often see unidentified flying objects. Fiery objects of different shapes and colours most often seen here in summer in the daytime and in clear weather.

10. The Museum-reserve “Tsaritsyno”.

About 500 years ago, among the primeval forest stood a village called “Black mud”. The name of the village was for the fact that there was mud and keys. There was a belief that if you fight with a black oily muck, and then take a dip in one of the keys beating from under the earth, then all ailments and diseases “as if by magic”.
