Only 40-minute journey from Moscow - and you find yourself in a place which was inaccessible for visitors for more than 60 years, surrounded by a secrecy veil.

The firing ground occupies more than 160 sq. km of a forest tract - you have a unique opportunity wearing a uniform of a Russian soldier to fire different types of modern arms and weapons: small arms, tanks, howitzers, flame-throwers, grenade dischargers and even a GRAD system. You will have lunch prepared right at the firing POSITION in a real field kitchen as well as all the opportunities for an active rest in one of the ecologically purest zones of Moscow Region. Swimming and fishing, hunting (elk, hare, wild boar, fox), horse-riding and airing in the forest are all at your service. At night after sauna and real shashliks you will have the pleasure to sit near the camp fire, listening to the hunter's tales.
