Mstera isn't just a beautiful place... It's also Russian folk fine-art centre.
The famous Russian lacquer miniature, the finest filigree gold and silver work, embroidery in satin-stitch and some other types of
old Russian traditional crafts are flourishing here! A century ago Mstera was the most important icon Russian centre.
All crafts have been preserved here.
