Today I'd like to tell you about #Tula that is famous for its #gingerbread, #weapons and #samovars. A separate museum is dedicated to each of these directions in the city. 💡One of the main sights of the city is Kremlin. The Kremlin belongs to the 16th century, it was built with defensive purposes in order to protect the road to Moscow from the Crimean Tatars. In the early 17 century. False Dmitry the First led the reception on the territory of the Kremlin in Tula. In the same 17th century, when Russia's borders expand, the Kremlin loses its military role. Today it is a monument of history and architecture.
. . 💡In 16th century Tula acted as a defensive line, there was a great need for weapons. The metal was obtained from the brown iron ore - the deposit was near. Moscow and Tula armourers exchanged their secrets. Since 1712, the arms factory, founded by Peter the Great, began its work. He supplied a large number of necessary weapons. But the most beautiful weapon of the master was left at the factory. By the order of the Empress Catherine II at the end of the 18th century, The "Chamber of Rare Weapons" was created here. Later the collection was replenished with exhibits of the Moscow Armory Chamber, but in the late 19th century, returned to Tula.
. 💡 In the first years of Soviet power, the museum was in the factory shop. Later, during the Great Patriotic War, he was evacuated, and returned back in 1945. In the late 80's the museum moved to the Epiphany Cathedral. The new building of the museum opened in 2012. . . 💡In the estate "Yasnaya Polyana" near Tula there is a house-museum of one of the greatest Russian writers Lev Tolstoy, who lived here for more than half a century. Here is the grave of the writer. . . 💡There is an exotarium in Tula, which is now the RAS research laboratory, collected the world's largest collection of snakes - it includes over 524 species and subspecies of these reptiles. . . 💡 Special gingerbread are produced in Tula, the shape for baking was cut out and then stood for several decades. After in the form of baked a single gingerbread, worth of the title of unique.

✨Who doesn’t love a bit of copper? .
.
.
. Copper may have been one of the coolest trends in interiors last year but copper-ware has been used in kitchens all around the world for centuries #tradition .
.
. Look at this gorgeous platter - it’s actually made of copper and then covered with a kind of metallic glaze in Kashmiri called ‘kalai’. - I use it mostly to display fruit but it’s not a decorative piece! In Kashmir, this is an everyday dinner plate! Not only plates but drinking glasses, serving dishes, spoons and the lovely #samovars are all made from copper. .
.
.
. That feeling though... of drinking cold lassi from a copper mug 👌🏾#coppercrush .

Samovar lampshades, Exeter Quay #samovars #lightshades #lampshadeshop #lightshop

So... I am getting the house ready for a little art event with @kirstiewalheim #hellboxbooks and see these samovars in great need of polishing. Actually, I like them dull, but this looks like tea spills from who knows when. I grew up as an #armybrat and gathered stuff that is not useful in my life, but makes me happy. These are from Iran, where I lived for a couple of years. #goodmemories. I think I will just #ignore the #samovars, and focus on #artful activities. #gratefulheart in #minneapolis

Dinner in the Bolshevik room at Baku's Shirvanshah

Shirvanshah is a "museum restaurant." It's housed in and above a structure that served as a hamam (https://goo.gl/Fd3Uor ) for 200 years.
Eldar Meydiyev, the assistant food and beverage manager, gave us a tour and showed us displays that included copper platters and utensils, clocks, samovars and carpets, as well as exhibits of culinary-related specialties of Azerbaijan a tandir oven and typical bread baked in it, and a table set for tea with traditional sweets. For parties the restaurant has lavishly decorated rooms that give a feeling of exotic splendor from the time of the shahs.

In addition, he showed us dining rooms displaying memories of the not-so-distant period when the Soviet Union ruled Azerbaijan posters, books and even a Soviet soldier's uniform. We seemed surprised that there's a room dedicated to Stalin but our host said, "If not for him, we would have lost the Second World War." Mr. Meydiyev explained that this restaurant is unique because you can eat in a museum in a room of your choice, such as the clock-makers room or the Bolshevik room, where we had our dinner.

The photos here show the entrance to the restaurant, domes from the hamam roof, and a musician playing playing a saz--an Azerbaijani musical instrument, and a table set with Azerbaijani cold appetizers, including grilled eggplant-pepper-tomato salad, pickles and local cheeses.
